  • 8 lbs. pale ale malt
  • ½ lb. crystal malt 60°L
  • ½ lb. Carapils malt
  • ½ lb. Victory malt
  • ½ lb. Briess Special Roast
  • 3 oz. roasted barley
  • ¾ oz. Centennial hop pellets (9% AA) 60 min.
  • ½ oz. Williamette whole hops (5.5 % AA) 45 min.

  • ½ oz. Williamette whole hops (5.5 % AA) 15 min.

Keith mashed at 154°F and fermented with a large quantity of Wyeast’s American Ale yeast (1056).

Extract brewers should be able to make a reasonable approximation of this recipe by substituting a 4 lb. can of Alexander’s pale malt extract and 2 lbs. of Muntons light dry malt extract for the 8 lbs. of pale ale malt.
