Your House Pale Ale?
« on: February 21, 2018, 05:37:21 PM »
Something I struggle with a bit is having good, dependable house recipes. When it comes time to make a recipe I always make grand plans to do something exciting and never really nail down what I already know I like. A crisp, lightly hopped and balanced Pale Ale is one of my favorite beers for all seasons but I've yet to nail down a recipe that really does it for me.

So my question to you guys is whats you're go-to recipe for a nice pale ale?

I have one I've made a few time's I found on HBT called McNulty's Pale Ale. Show me some of your favourites!

I'm always trying to improve something with my beer.
But I've been also thinking about sticking to something simple as a house ale. Not necessarily a pale ale but I seem to brew a NEIPA almost every other batch... 
However a NEIPA is very dependant on the hops being very good and fresh since it's such a very hop forward style.
My last batch which I kegged today was a simple Amber Ale it tastes great so I think I may just continue exploring simple beers. Maybe alternate between NEIPA's and old school recipes.

I like my PA pretty simple (like the song, Iím a simple man lol). Usually itís like 90% base, 5% crystal and 5% carafoam. If the base is 2 row Iíll add about 10% munich or 4-5% melanoidin/honey malt/victory
I have a PA lined up tomorrow, 90% ESB malt 4% victory 6% carafoam. First time using Gambrinus ESB malt
