Would pale ale malt instead of the 2 row be ok for the base?

First pull from the tap



I must say this is one tasty beer. I used gelatin for the fist time and had great results. It's hard to tell from the picture but its crystal clear. Thanks for the recipe BM.

Hey CaliBrewin, It was in primary for a week @ about 68 degrees, then secondary for about 2 weeks @ 70 degrees, then crash cooled for 3 days with gelatin then kegged. I kegged a little quicker than I should have but it tasted great so I can't complain.

I won 1st place English Pale Ale in the Palmetto State Brewers Open with a slightly modified version of this recipe.

the biggest change was that i used US goldings instead of Willamette.

thanks!

I think I'll add this to my list, I've been looking for a good session beer on tap. I was actually even thinking of dialing this back on the abv a bit. If I shaved off 1 or 2 lb of 2 row, but kept everything else the same that should put me in the 4.6 to 4.9 range depending on the crush I would think. (At work so I don't have access to a brew calculator.) I wonder though would the recipe stil be pretty balanced or would I be screwing up a good thing?
