1 Gallon extract recipe needed
« on: February 06, 2014, 04:27:02 PM »
Recipe professionals, lend me your surefire 1 gallon pale ale/IPA/cream ale recipe please. I need something for the weekend (brewing an extract batch with a friend who hasn't come to the dark side yet).

california common is a nice one. sort of a pale ale.

~1-2 lb of extra light DME
~4 oz crystal 60
maybe .5 oz northern brewer at 60 and another .5 at flame out.

easy peasy

Not really a lager; ferment around 58-60.

Not too many folks here brew one gallon patches I don't think.
Northern Brewer has a lot of proven recipes and are cool enough to post them.  Take a look.

Right, it's a lager yeast, sort of, that works well at ale temps. it tends to throw a lot of sulfur but that passes.

Northern brewer is good but they don't list which grains and the qty of the specialty grains.

When I mentioned northern brewer I was referring to the hop of that name. It is the traditional hop in california common. I do one with cascade which is also nice.

Yup, got it. Someone else mentioned the online store as well. That common will be too tough to regulate temps for my pal. Need an ale, don't fail me now AHA.

Yum. You could get sneaky and bitter with .5 Perle, and then cram the Cascade at the end.

Ever had Bells two hearted?  All Centennial IPA? 

steep 4 oz CL 40
1.5 Gold LME
45 min boil
3.5 g Cent @45
3.5 g Cent @20
7.0 g Cent @ 5
7.0 g Cent @ 0
.5 packet US-05

Sure, Extra light DME and a little crystal malt is tasty .5 oz bittering hops might be a bit much, I didn't work out the IBU just kind of tossed it out there.

It's a lot easier to make a drinkable (especially just drinkable) or even a good 'ale' recipe than people think.

Keep it simple, base + 1 or 2 character malts (Remember with extract you already have some character malts in there most likely so you can go as simple as, some extract, but if you want to use steeping grains a little crystal in the medium color range is nice)

and then pick some hops you think you might like and add enough to get the bitterness you want and then some at the end (last 5 minutes or even 0 minutes and just let it rest after you turn the heat off for a couple minutes before chilling)

use a neutral yeast so you don't have to think about it. us-05 is great for that because it's dry so it's easy to handle and cheap but it is clean and versatile.
