A flavourful American Pale Ale.
Our American Pale Ale has an amber appearance with a prominent bitterness. Due to ale and crystal malts used, it has a steady malt flavour with a touch of bready and toasty notes. The yeast supplied lid is an 11g pack of Fermentis US-05 ale yeast. Original Gravity of 1.045 (11.25°P), fermented to a Final Gravity of about 1.011 (2.75°P), resulting in 4.5% alcohol by volume, 30 Bitterness Units and 6.5 SRM/13 EBC colour. Ferment at 23°C/73°F. To elevate the fresh hop aroma of this style, we recommend the brewer make a hop tea of 1-2 oz. (28-56 grams) of any American hops in a French coffee press. Add approx. 900ml of hot boiled water to the hops, stir and then steep for 20 minutes. Plunge the solids and add the green, filtered hop tea to the mix of ingredients in your fermenter (before adding the yeast).
