My beer isn't quite as dark as the one shown from Ed but its a nice American pale ale.

One thing that I may change is the hops bitterness. I'm not a huge fan of really hoppy beers and this one is very citrus'y with the amount of Cascades in the recipe.

I'm not a BMC guy I do like some hop flavor but in a more balanced manner.

I will try cutting the hops in half for the next brew.

HELP - is my beer ruined???




J/K

First, let me say that I'm a fan of this recipe. I've brewed it several times with great results and friends really like it.

I don't know what happened with this last batch, though. It turned out really sweet for some reason and there's absolutely zero head. Clearly it's not the recipe's fault. I used S-05 (nottingham not available) and kept it between at 67-68º for 3 weeks. It had an active, but slow and drawn-out fermentation. It finished at 1.013, a little higher than my previous attempts with nottingham, but not necessarily out of range. I skipped the secondary and went straight to the keg. The hops I used were plugs that had been in the freezer for a while, and they may have lost a little bitterness making it tilt toward the malty side of balanced.

Think I should rack this out of the keg and try to do a second fermentation to dry it out a little?

Anyway, I was really looking forward to another great batch of haus pale.

It's doubtful that it will ferment anymore, but additional conditioning might help. No need to remove it from the keg (unless you need the keg space.) Just take it out of refrigeration and let it set at room temperature for a few weeks. Bobby_M did a post about this a while back where he had good results.

I went and got all the ingredients today. Only thing is they were out of Noddy, so I got Safe ale 04. Hopefully it does the trick! It will be my first all grain also. My brewing partner has done 2 all grain porters on home made stuff. So far beer is coming out good. Man cost me 30 bucks. All I bought was what was on the recipe. That's still cheap as my buddies porters are running him almost 35-40. Looking foward to pale ale. Our first beer we ever made, Jan of this year, was a extract grain pale ale brewers best kit. We still have bottles ready to drink and they are good.

Yeah, when you pay $5 an ounce for hops, it will jump up there.

Williams Brewing has Cascade for $4 for a 2 oz. bag. $2 and ounce compared to $5 an ounce...Hmmmm. I'd be buying hops from Williams Brewing.

Add me to the list of Bee Cave Haus Pale Ale brewers. I brewed up 5 gallons of this yesterday. It was my second AG batch. Everything went very well. I'm still trying to nail down my boil off so I had to top off a bit, but I hit the gravity dead on and had about 75% efficiency. This was also my first batch with my new immersion chiller. Holy cold break Batman! That was quite a sight to see.

Fermenting along nicely this morning. Now I just need to wait and get another batch going so I have a better pipeline. I think BM's OctoberFAST is up next.

I'd like to try this. This will most likely be my next batch. Is this a 10 gallon batch? If it is, can I simply cut in half and get away with it?

Every recipe in the database will state the batch size. This recipe is for 5.5 gallons as all of mine are to account for hydrometer readings, etc. so I finally end up with 5 gallons in the keg.
