Aj's Pale Ale

Author/Submitted by: Alex Jenkins, Ladies Home Journal- August 1991
Servings: 54
Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / Ale / Brewing

5  pounds  Pale malt
1  pound  Crystal malt
1  teaspoon  Gypsum
3 1/2  pounds  Pale dry extract
1 1/3  pounds  Light brown sugar
1  ounce  Willamette hops (boil)
1 1/2  ounces  Hallertauer hops
1  teaspoon  Irish moss
1  ounce  Clusters hops pellets
    Red Star ale yeast

Mash pale malt, crystal malt, and gypsum in 2-3/4 gallons of 170 degree water; this should give initial heat of 155 degrees (pH 5.0). Maintain temperature at 140-155 degrees for 2 hours. Sparge. To wort, add extract and brown sugar. Boil with Willamette hops. After 15 minutes add Hallertauer and Irish moss. Dry hop with clusters and steep. When cool, add wort to carboy and pitch yeast. The posted recipe called for 4 pounds of dry extract with 2 cups reserved for priming. This seemed excessive and a good way to get exploding bottles, so we reduced the amount of extract to 3-1/2 pounds and assumed that standard priming techniques would be used, maybe replacing corn sugar with 3/4 to 1 cup of malt extract. --- Ed. Notice that I screwed up the hops: Clusters are for bittering, and Willamette (or Fuggles) for aromatic. Original Gravity: 1.048 Final Gravity: 1.011 Primary Ferment: 23 days.
