Hi Pat -- congrats and thanks for sharing!

I see you ferment at 67. Do you pitch at 67 or pitch low and ramp up?

Thanks!

I try to pitch at around 65. I don't have the ability to "ramp up" temps because I ferment everything in my basement, which usually sits at around 67. But, yeah, it's better to pitch lower and raise temp if you have the means.

I brewed this in late July and entered it in 2 recent contests.

3rd place in English Pale Ale categrory - 38.0 points

1st place in English Pale Ale category - 38.5 points
Moved on to Best of Show tasting

Judges' comments included:
Very nice balanced beer. Very drinkable - Professional Brewer

This is extremely refreshing pale bitter. It is very clean. I like the acidity and the malt is well done. Commendable beer. I'd probably finish a 5 gallon batch in a week - Honorary Master (who is from England)

Thanks for such a great recipe!

Fantastic news! Congratulations! I'm happy the recipe helped out, but remember it's all about who brewed it, so this is YOUR success! Cheers!
