A few weeks ago, I needed to use up some ingredients I picked up at the Local Home Brew shop. These were my impulse purchases. A yeast and some other ingredients I have never used before. Heck, the hops are called “Experimental #7270.” So what is a brewer to do? You guessed it whip up a Pale Ale!
To round out the recipe, I also used some of Two Tracks “Okefenokee” as the base malt.
Here is the recipe:
Experimental Pale Ale
- 10 lbs. Okefenokee Pale Malt
- 3/4 lbs. Munich Malt
- 1/2 lbs. White Wheat
- .25 oz Experimental Hops #07270 (60 min)
- .25 oz Experimental Hops #07270 (40 min)
- .25 oz Experimental Hops #07270 (20 min)
- .25 oz Experimental Hops #07270 (0 min)
- .50 oz Experimental Hops #07270 (Dry Hopped)
- Wyeast – #1450 – Denny’s Favorite 50
I brewed the beer using a brew in the bag method and a standard 60-minute boil. Since the yeast was old, I used 2 packs and made a 1200ml starter.
I pitched the yeast at 68℉. Fermentation had started by the morning. Currently, the beer is fermenting, I will add the dry hops with 3-4 days left. I will update the post with the results.
