Title: PHAT ???? Ale
Post by: slickdaddy420 on July 31, 2012, 08:39:23 AM
I brewed this beer last night. I thought it would be fun to make beer names using the first letter of the hops/additions used. This one is PHAT. My question is.... what beer type this would fall into?

Pale? Blonde? Golden?

Not sure what it technically would be. It was not as light colored as I had hoped. So, I would assume Pale Ale.

OG – 1.052
IBUs ~26

Steeping -
1 lbs Briess Carapils

60 Minute Boil -
6lbs NB Organic Light LME
1lbs Honey

Think your IBUs are too low for a Pale, I'd call it a Blonde (BJCP Cat 6B)

It is too bad you did not have a Belgian yeast strain for this.

I figured out the "iBrewMaster" app on determining styles. Blonde Ale is what it would be as "hokerer" suggested.

I Don't think so, generally cara means it's a caramel/crystal product so it has already been mashed in it's little skin.
