Batch 104, Pale Ale

Just a basic pale ale. I'm behind, this will help me catch up. It's good having several kegs waiting to go on tap.

10 gallon batch

17 lbs 2-row
2 lbs Victory
1 lb Wheat
1 lb Crystal 60

Mash at 153F for 60 minutes. Collect 13 gallons.

1 oz Cascade, FWH
1.5 oz Chinook, 60 min
1 oz Cascade 10 min

90 minute boil.

Wyeast 1332, Northwest Ale yeast

OG: 1.050, 1.054 actual
FG: 1.012
IBU: 41
SRM 11
ABV: 4.8
Balance: 1.67

I'll dry hop this after primary fermentation is done with 2 oz Cascade.

Update, 2/20/2011, kegged, harvested yeast. I did not dry hop this -- I got busy and sort of forgot about this beer, so it's been fermenting for about 3 weeks. The hydro sample tastes pretty good, so I'm going to leave it as is and not add any more hops.

10/843
