IPA or Pale Ale? English Pale Ale or American Pale Ale?

Really, you can't go wrong doing a SNPA cloner. Always a good choice.

I'm working on somethign right now--but maybe someone can link you to a recent thread with a SNPA clone recipe in it..or you can do a quic search for "pale ale recipe" and see what you find.....post what you come up with!

If no one posts--I'm posting the recipe for Lake Walk Pale Ale!!!!!

Yeah do a nice APA. Per 5 gallons use about 10 pounds of 2-row. If you want a little sweetness, throw in a pund of crystal. Hop it with Columbus, Centennial, Cascade and/or Amarillo to your tastes (my tastes run toward the hoppy

Best to go nice and simple for your first AG...you'll like it better anyway and you can get a feel for the process without lots of weird variables.

Cheers

Sparge w/ 5.5 gallons of 170 degree water or until you get a kettle volume of 6.6 gallons. boil for 90 minutes, with first hop additions at 60 min left in the boil. cool wort to 70 degrees, aerate well, and pitch yeast (i use a 1300 ml starter). ferment around 68-70 degrees.

Not to get off on a hijack, but have oyu brewed this before Tony?

I used to bitter my LWPA with Perle but I get a very strong, harsh bitterness with those...anyone else notice that with Perle?

I rate Sierra Nevada very good. But both Lagunitas IPA and Terminal Gravity IPA really stand out for me. If the price of these were to drop, I probably would never brew another light ale..... just porters, stouts and lagers.
