American Pale Ale (Extract)

American Pale Ale (Extract)

This recipe was designed for one of my "Brewing 101" pages.

OG: 1.050
IBUs: 40
Size: 5 gallons

What you need:

6.5 Pounds Liquid Malt Extract

0.5 pounds crushed caramel 60 malt

1 oz Magnum Hops (14% AA)
0.75 oz Perle Hops (8% AA)
1 oz Cascade (5.5% AA)

1 Packet Safale US-05

  1. Bring 2.5 gallons of water to 150 F and add the steeping grains inside of a muslin bag for 30 minutes.
  2. Bring the water to a boil and add all of the Liquid Malt Extract, make sure you stir to prevent it from cooking to the bottom (adding it slowly would be wise).
  3. Set the timer for 60 minutes and add the 1 oz of Magnum Hops
  4. At 30 minutes remaining add 0.75 oz of Perle Hops
  5. At 10 minutes remaining add 0.5 oz of Cascade
  6. At 0 minutes turn off the flame and cool the beer to 80 F, this can be done by placing the pot in a sink/ bath tub of cold water or by adding cold, sterile, water to bring the volume to 5 gallons.
  7. Bring the volume to 5 gallons.
  8. Add the yeast and allow fermentation to occur, after 10 days siphon the beer into your secondary container and add the remaining 0.5 oz of Cascade hops. 
  9. Allow the beer to dry hop in the secondary 1 week before bottling.
