I'm thinking about brewing this again and splitting the batch. One batch I will use the Nottingham yeast and the other I want to try a saison yeast. Does anyone have any experience doing this with an american pale ale?

I brewed the all grain recipe on Friday 6/7, thought I sparged too much water so boiled an extra 15 minutes before adding hops. Ended up with less than planned for fermenting and hit 1.050. Dumb me! I went out of town (Savor, NY) and just got home. Too tired to bottle now so I have transferred to a secondary, BUT will not be able to bottle for about another 2 weeks because I am having knee surgery tomorrow and will be on crutches for a bit. I hope I have not ruined this batch. Timing has been terrible.

Any thoughts??? Maybe I should dry hope for a week or so until I can bottle? But really looking for that light, tasty summery ale.

I wouldn't worry about it. It will be fine in secondary for a few weeks at least.

I brewed 5 gallons of the all-grain today and I came pretty close to hitting all the numbers. The sample looked and tasted great. I can't remember if I mentioned it in this thread or not but I plan on using the yeast cake from this batch to ferment a clone of Stone's 15th Anniversary Black IPA.

I brewed a nice easy extract beer on Friday night, pretty similar to this. Steeped a little Crystal, used Pilsner dry extract and Centennial hops. It's bubbling away. I hope to have it on tap in a couple weeks.

I'm brewing a 21# version of this recipe. Doubling the pale 2 malt and adding 1# dextrine. Also adding an additional 1 oz mosaic hops and an additional .5 of both cascade and centennial. This is going down on Monday. Let's see how she does.

Just used this as a basis to do a ginger blonde. Hit my numbers perfect. Added 4 oz of shredded ginger root at 60 minutes.

Transferred this to secondary this weekend to free up a fermenter. Gravity was 1.008. Sample was excellent. Can't wait to get this one on the CO2.

I brewed 110 bottles of this recipe in April and I am about 18 bottles away from finishing them! Excellent summer brew, refreshing, tasty, pleases beer snobs but BMC drinkers will drink them!
