I experimented a little bit with an american pale ale recipe my LHBS offers and I must say, I'm pleased with the results. I just cracked the first one after 5 days in the bottle, and it is by far the best I've brewed, in my short experience. I hope I can let these age a bit before I drink them all..

It's definitely hoppy, but IMO, not overdone.

6.6 lbs. Light or Gold Liquid Malt Extract
1 lb. British Pale Grain (cracked)
oz. Chinook Hops - 60 min
oz. Cascade Hops - 60 min
2 oz. Cascade Hops - 30/50/0 min
1 oz. Cascade Hops - Dry hop
1 pkg. Wyeast Liquid Yeast - American Ale

Mash all grains in 1 gal water at 158F for 60 min. Sparge at 170F to make 2 gal. Add malt, oz. Chinook and oz Cascade. Boil for 60 min. adding oz. Cascade at 30 minute mark (mid-point of boil), another oz. at 50 minute mark, & final oz. after boil has stopped. Let sit for 10 min. (to allow for steeping). Strain into fermenter filled with 3 gal. ice cold water. Pitch yeast when cooled to 80F or lower. Dry hop last 1 oz. Cascade in secondary for 1-2 weeks before bottling.

To be honest, I haven't a clue.


The adjustments I made to the original recipe were these:

- Increased mash time from 30 to 60 min.
- An extra .25 oz Cascade added to boil and at each addition.
- 1.5 oz Cascade dry hop (no dry hop in the original recipe).

I get peeved at some recipes that say use a certain hop and then doesn't give you an IBU rating.

Then I think again and say to myself that it really doesn't matter as long as the end product is within range.

Problem is when your use of malt is on the top end of the scale and your hops are on the bottom your brew is going to be a tad sweeter than expected and vice versa, malt on the low end and hops on the high will produce a more bitter flavor than desired.

justbrewit, you REALLY seem to like hops, man.

Maybe you should just roll up a big fat doobie of hop flowers and puff away.

What did you use for your calculations? I get 68 IBU on TastyBrew. Are you plugging that '50 min' 0.75 oz addition in as 50 minutes boil time or 10?
