Rat Bastard Pale Ale

88.9 10.00 lbs. Pale Malt(2-row) America 1.036 2
4.4 0.50 lbs. Maris Otter Great Britain 1.038 3
4.4 0.50 lbs. Victory Malt America 1.034 25
2.2 0.25 lbs. Crystal 80L America 1.033 80
0.50 oz. Amarillo Gold Pellet 8.90 60 min.
0.50 oz. Cascade Pellet 6.30 30 min.
0.50 oz. Amarillo Gold Pellet 8.90 15 min.
0.50 oz. Cascade Pellet 6.30 5 min.
Fermentis Safale US 05

Mash Schedule
Single mash infusion @ 154 for 60 minutes

This is a very easy drinking beer even with the higher gravity and grain bill.
I was surprised that the beer was as crisp and drinkable given the mash temp and the grain bill. I attribute this to the highly attenuating yeast.
The beer is ready to drink after about a week in the keg.
Surprisingly easy drinking, this really is a flavorful Quaffer.
For those of you that like an easy drinking brew that really is full of flavor this is it.
The Amarillo/Cascade hops really balance well with the malts.

I was concerned about the crystal and victory malts, but it really works well.
I am proud of this one, I will certainly brew it again.
