6.4 oz cara pills
Hops

Centennial .5oz 5 min
Amarillo 1oz 1 min
Centennial .5oz 1min
Yeast
US-05
Extras
irish moss 2tsp 15 min

So very sadly my last beer went catastrophically wrong... I'm make this pale as a bit of an easy but tasty revival to my beer spirit. I want to get a really clean dry finish? Does anyone have suggestions for a better yeast or difference in grains?

I like it a a lot. Think you're spot on. Us-05 is a great clean yeast

I've got an amarillo/centennial IPA dry hopping right now. I bittered with columbus. US-05 got me from 1.059 to 1.009. Should be kegging in a few days. Hope it goes well for you, mine smells great. Real excited about it.

Just did something very similar. Bittering with centennial and then mix of centennial and Amarillo for flavor aroma. Very nice beer. Mine is more an APA vs IPA. Ibu are at 35 and it is just great. I used light lme crystal 20 and victory malt.

I would cut back on the crystal a bit and add Munich, Vienna or victory for a biscuity malty taste and more complexity unless you only want caramel ...

I was thinking that my self. Victory sounds really good, how much do you think I should substitute? I have not used it in a lot of batches..

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you can use Munich or Vienna unless you are mashing. I make a similar beer with Munich and toasted malt (which is close to victory). It's great. I like a pound of victory, but you might want to start with 1/2 pound. I also dryhop it with an ounce of each centennial and Amarillo. It's great if that's your bag.

Ditch the carapils. There's a decent portion of carapils already inherent in DME.

You could use 5% Victory if you want more nutty or 5% Amber malt if you want more toasty. I would probably go with 5% Honey malt here myself.

Also, if you're brewing extract and you want a very dry pale ale, then you should not use 1lb. of crystal 20. If using crystal, I'd use crystal 10 and keep the percentage at 4-5% for the total recipe.

You'll also want to get that FG down around 1.014 or lesser.

Check your Irish Moss addition. I think you may be using twice what is required.

Nice hop combo and schedule. I like Amarillo & Citra even better.
