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 kit includes an 800g can of American Pale Ale, 645g bag of Dry Malt extract and an 11g pack of Fermentis US-05 ale yeast.
Ferment at 18-28ºC / 64-77ºF (ideally near the middle of this range)
Original Gravity of 1.045 (11.25°P), fermented to a Final Gravity of about 1.011 (2.80°P), resulting in 4.5% alcohol by volume, 30 Bitterness Units and 6.5 SRM/13 EBC colour.
To elevate the fresh hop aroma of this style, we recommend the brewer make a hop tea of 1-2 oz. (15-25 grams) of any American hops in a French coffee press. Check out our recipes for more information.
