This is ONE DELICIOUS BEER! Great recipe! Thank you BM!
It's a year-rounder at my house.

going to give this recipe a go this weekend. How long of a mash do you generally do? 90 minutes?

You want a bit maltier taste with this one. No more than 60.

How does this compare directly to Redhook ESB? The hops seems a fair bit different than what they list on their website:
  • Alchemy (bittering blend), Willamette, Centennial, Crystal

Just curious since Redhook ESB is one of my favorites and I'm planning on brewing this next. I have some Tettnanger hops already and some Willamette hops on order so this one is a go either way!

I brewed this up on March 6th and bottled it up last week.
Just tried one and holy cow, this is a great tasting beer!

It's going to be hard waiting a few weeks for them to mature

Great recipe BierMuncher!

It's a great standard pale ale for people who don't want hop-bombs.

I'm toasting barley as i type. My question is if my tettneg is 3.2% and willamettes are spot on...should I adjust (add double tettneg) to keep ibus the same?

Yes, you should adjust to keep the IBUs the same.

I'm drinking this beer right now and really love it. But next time its getting a touch more bitterness.

Here is the hop schedule I came up with: (5.5gal)

.6oz Willamette (4.8%) @ 60min - 10 ibu (BierMuncher - 9.7ibu)
1oz Tettnang (3.2%) @ 30min - 9ibu (BierMuncher - 8.8ibu)
.5oz Willamette (4.8%) @ 20min - 4.8ibu (BierMuncher - 4.9ibu)
1oz Tettnang (3.2%) @ 5min - 2ibu (BierMuncher - 2.3ibu)

I figure for the longer boils you need the ibu's to be adjusted...but should I add 1oz of tettnang at 5 min (instead of .5oz) because the AA% is half of BM's Tettnang...I would guess yes but wanted to check with everyone!

thanks!!!




this way the IBU's added at each stage are correct - is this correct?

Looks good to me! If you want to it come out like BM's recipe keep the proportion of IBUs the same at each addition, like you did.
