1 oz Amarillo whole leaf; 1 min
1 tablet whirfloc
Mash: 45 min at 157*F (later found out that the thermometer was inaccurate; was probably more like 160 - 162*F)
FG seems high, probably from high mash temp (?)
This is the first time that I have used honey malt. I cant taste the honey, but this is a quality pale ale.
For as high as the FG is, it doesnt seem too heavy.
Poured pretty clear with a nice head that clung to the side of the glass.
