Rb's Pale Ale

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Brewing

 Ingredients List

  • 7 1/2 lb English 2-row malt
  • 3/4 lb Crystal malt
  • 3 oz Fuggles hops (boil)
  • 3/4 oz Hallertauer hops (finish)
  • Ale yeast


You'll get good yield and lots of flavor from English malt and a 1-stage
150 degree mash. In the boil, I added the finishing hops in increments:
1/4 ounce in last 30 minutes, 1/4 ounce in last 15 minutes, and 1/4
ounce at the end (steep 15 minutes) don't have to be Fuggles; almost any
boiling hops will do, I usually mix Northern Brewer with Fuggles or
Goldings (just make sure you get .12-.15 alpha). Conversion will pro-
bably only take 60 minutes rather than 90. Depending on when you stop
the mash your gravity may vary as high as 1.050. That's a lot of body! This
is a simple all-grain recipe for a good pale ale that lets the beginner
concentrate on the mashing process. Hallertauer may not be traditional
for ales, but neither is a modern piano for sonatas. But I think
Beethoven himself would have used one if he had one. Original Gravity: up
to 1.050 Final Gravity: up to 1.020
