Pale ale (beer #6)

My next very simple attempt is for a hoppy pale session bitter. I'm aiming for about 4% ABV (1.040 OG) but quite bitter at 32 EBU. I will reserve judgement on a name until I taste it.

Beer #6 - unnamed as yet (23L)
  • 2628g Pale Spraymalt
  • 29g Challenger (90 minutes)
  • 9g Fuggles (90 minutes)
  • 5g Fuggles (10 minutes)
  • Wyeast #1335 British Ale II
So adjusted for a 6L partial boil and late extract addition:
  • Put the flame on 6L of water
  • Add 685g DME
  • When boiling add 90 minute hops
  • After 80 minutes add additional hops
  • Boil for another 10 minutes
  • Pour into FV and make up to 23L
  • Add the remaining 1943g of DME
  • When temperature under 30C pitch yeast
I think this will be getting done tomorrow so I can make a yeast starter from the smack pack and let it cook up a bit.
