First Ames Brew American Pale Ale

Beer Style:pale ale
Recipe Type:all-grain

It’s flavor reminds me of SNPA and has the color of Bass. I hope some of you might be able to get ideas from it.

  • 7 lbs pale malt
  • 1 lb Munich malt
  • 1 lb special roast malt (45L)
  • 1/4 lb crystal malt (40L)
  • 1/2 lb wheat malt
  • 1/4 lb dextrine malt
  • 1/8 lb black patent
  • 1 oz cascade hops 5.5% AA (1 hour)
  • 1 oz tettnang hops 3.8% AA (1 hour)
  • 3/4 oz hallertauer 2.6% AA (1/2 hour)
  • 3/4 oz hallertauer 2.6% AA (10 minutes)
  • 1/2 cup corn sugar priming
  • Wyeast American Ale #1056

This was the first beer I brewed when I moved back to Ames, IA hence its name. But enough of that. Crush all grains and add to hot tap water (approximately 2.5 gallons). Let mash set for 15 minutes. Raise temperature to 122 F for protein rest and hold for 35 minutes. Add 3/4 gallon of boiling water to bring mash to 140 F, hold for 30 minutes. Add additional 3/4 gallon of boiling water to bring temperature up to 155 F. Hold at this temperature for 1 hour. Sparge till your hearts content and begin boil. Boil hops for indicated times (I put the hops in boiling bags). After 1 hour, stop boil and chill wort and siphon into primary fermenter. Pitch yeast from starter.
