Stone Cali-Belgique OR Belgian IPA Yeast Selection

(1/3) > >>

AmandaK:
Hey guys, I'm aiming for a beer similar to Stone's Cali-Belgique, their Belgian IPA offering.

Yes, I'm reading Steele's IPA. That being said, he mentions in passing that Cali-Belgique is the Stone IPA wort fermented with Belgian yeast. Given that the recipe is somewhat given for Stone IPA in the back of the book, I've worked this out for my system:

11 lb Pale Malt (which should be around 4L based on the SRM he states - maybe Maris Otter or another base malt?)
14 oz Crystal 15
-----
0.75oz Chinook @ 90
0.75oz Columbus @ 90
1.5oz Centennial @ Flame Out
-----
WLP500??

My two questions are this:
1) What do you think he meant by "Pale Malt"?
2) Will WLP500 work well with American 'c' hops or is there a better alternative?

Cheers!

summy:
Not sure about Stone, but Raging b**** uses WLP-400 Belgian Wit yeast.  As far as the grain goes, perhaps pale ale malt, which is a bit darker than just pale malt?

At 4L it sounds more like pale ale than pale malt.

I think you're probably right on that one Denny. Is 'pale ale' malt something I can use like Rahr 2-row? I'm fresh out of plain ol' 2-row and might pick up a sack if that's the case. From what I can see, I think I could:

Sure, you certainly could.
