Tasting Notes
Easy drinking Pale Ale
Brewhouse Efficiency: 75%
Batch Size: 11 gallons
Equipment Used: Sanke Keg for HLT and Boil Kettle, 10g Round Cooler for MLT.
Tasting Notes: Nice, light pale ale. Plenty of hop aroma and bitterness to keep me happy, but not too bitter to turn off the majority of my guests. For my 2-row, I've been using half Pale Ale Malt and half normal 2-row Pale Malt. This gives the beer just a bit more complexity, and a bit of toastiness much like Marris Otter.

9.00 lb Pale Ale Malt (2 Row) US
1.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L

Mash Profile
Total Grain Weight: 21.50 lb
1. Mash in with 6.75 gallons of water @ 166F for a target temperature of 152F. Mash for 60 minutes.
2. Fly sparge with 9.5 gallons of 180F water

For batch sparge:
2. Drain MLT
3. Batch sparge with 4.75g of 185F water
4. Batch sparge with 4.75g of 185F water

Note: This should yeild 12.8 gallons in the boil kettle. I boil off 1.2 gallon per hour, and have a .6 gallon boil kettle/trub loss. Make sure to adjust the sparge water volume for your setup.
