I've always used Amarillo as a substitute for Cascade, how are they together? Sounds like a tasty brew.

OK, finally got around to stirring this one up.

Used Maris as the base grain, cut back 1# as you recommended. No Magnum was available, so I used Columbus. IBU's were higher but I cut back the Columbus addition to .4 oz to stay within style. Mashed at 154 as you did, which is a little high for me, I usually mash everything 150-152. Achieved horrible efficiency compared to recent batches; OG was 1.054.

Pitched a pretty old Pacman smack pack(six months past date), but fermentation was active ~8 hrs later. Hopefully I can wash it and save it.

I loved the color of the wort, a nice golden brown. All signs point this one being a winner. I'll post pics in a month or so(maybe sooner if I keg it). Do you have any pics of yours? It would be cool to compare.

EDIT 6/9 - Hydro sample taking while bottling was rad. Gonna be a good 'un.

Okay then! The final product:



The first pint was great. I'm taking this to a 4th of July party and I'm sure it's not going to last long.

Great, glad you like it! I love "pale" ales that have some color and backbone to them.
