I made this pale ale for vacation and I have to say It is by far my best beer yet. I came up with the recipe from many of the Sierra Nevada recipes out there. I just had a few Sierra Nevada Pale ales last night and I think mine is way better. Lots of hop nose and taste but not too bitter.
10 lbs Maris otter
.75 lbs cara pils
.75 caramunich 1 51 SRM (had it left over from another batch)
.3 oz magnum @ 60 minutes
.5 oz pearle @ 30 minutes
1 oz cascade @ 15 minutes
1.5 oz cascade @ flameout
.5 oz cascade dry hop in secondary.
Bottled with 4.5 oz Corn sugar, hopefully it will taste just as good out of the keg.
Mash temp was 153 for 1 hour, water to grain 1.3. Batch sparged.
