He said black ale, not stupid named rip off of an east coast style ale. That "Cascadian Dark Ale" crap can take a hike.
There's some pretty decent looking 1554 clone recipes kicking around somewhere...can't seem to find them at the moment.
Sorry Bluesman, no hostility towards you, I just hate that whole "Cascadian Dark Ale" business....
Why so hostile? It's just beer.
I know, I didn't mean to be so hostile, but firm. Cascadian Dark Ale just plain sounds stupid. India Black Ale or India Dark Ale sounds much better, because not all dark IPAs are going to be made with American C hops from the Northwest. Why should it be limited to one region of the US that obviously is trying to claim it as their original style, when it is not?
I made one of these myself and they're tasty, but never will I call it Cascadian Dark Ale, just like the Sears Tower is still the Sears Tower, not Willis Tower.
