Pale Ale?
« on: January 08, 2018, 07:38:50 AM »
I mixed up my pale ale and Irish red recipes tonight by mistake, the result of tired dad life, and I ended up with some light brown toilet water.  I'm hoping it will clear up and turn to an amber hue.  Here is the recipe - any comments would be appreciated.  And, should I call it a Pale Ale then? Thank you. 

12lbs 2 row
1lb    German Munich
.5lbs  Carared 
.5lbs  Crystal 40

1oz    Simcoe (60)
.5oz   Calypso(15)
.5oz   Simcoe (15)
1oz    Simcoe (0)
.5oz   Calypso(0)
1.5oz Simcoe (dry hopped)

White labs Irish Ale

90 min mash at 152f
I like that. Hmm Hmm. "I don't know," that's nice. 'Mr. Hand, will I pass this class?' 'Gee Mr. Spicoli, I don't know.' That's nice, I really like that. You know what I'm gonna do? I'm going to leave your words on my board for all my classes to enjoy, giving you full credit of course, Mr. Spicoli.

With an ABV a little over 6% and around 50 IBUs it fits neatly into the American IPA style. If you're worried about the hue, Specialty IPA might also be fitting. If you're not entering it into a competition, who cares, it sounds like a good brew.
Beer is my bucket list,

It's always a competition.  Thanks for the response.  Yeah should taste good, I just hate the color.
