I've been playing around with this recipe for a while now. I would like to get some insight from my fellow brewers on what they think. Just a heads up, I used EdWorts Haus Pale Ale as a backbone for this expeirment. Also, anyone have an idea on what style this would fall under?

9 lbs – 2 Row
1 lb – American Vienna
½ lbs – 60L

1 oz – Hallertauer (60 min)
½ oz – Tettnanger (20 min)
¼ oz – Tettnanger (10 min)
¼ oz – Tettnanger (5 min)

Mash at 1.25qts / lbs at 152 deg for an hour

Yeast – 1 Pkg of Nottingham
Primary – 3 wks @ 66 degs
Secondary - none

Figure 75% efficiency for my system

O.G. 1.055 F.G. 1.010 are my estimates

Looks like an excellent APA to me. I'm not familiar with EdWorts Haus Pale Ale, but an APA would typically have slightly more hop backbone. If it were me, I'd use 1.5 oz Hallertauer at 60 min rather than the 1 oz.

Cheers,

Thanks for the reply. When entering the recipe into (The Beer Recipator) I figured 4.5% for Hop IBU and came out with 24 IBU for the bitterness. Is this within range of a APA?

According to the BJCP the IBUs of an APA fall between 30 and 45
