Will you please post your recipe?

I just brewed one TODAY.  78% Pilsner malt, 20% Munich 1, 2% Copper malt to try to get a bit of that deep color.  25 IBUs of Sterling from the start of the boil and then US Saaz from Hop Heaven at 15 and again at 5.  2124 on the yeast.  High hopes for sure.  Yours looks delicious.

Absolutely!

18 Gallon Batch Size

R.O. Mash (12 gallons) Water Adjusted with 3.50 grams of CaCl, 2 grams of CaSO4, 1 gram MgSO4, 4 grams Sea Salt late boil.
R.O. Sparge Water Non-Adjusted (17 gallons)
21.5 Gallon Boil Size

30lbs. Weyermann Floor Malted Bo/Pils 2.3 SRM
5lbs. Weyermann Carafoam 2.0 SRM
.75lbs. Weyermann  Acidulated Malt 1.8 SRM

Mash 150* 75mins.
Sparge 168*

90 min. boil
39 IBU's
Czech Saaz 6.9% AA 55 grams @75mins, 60 grams @60mins, 50 grams @ 30mins.

Yeast Saflager 34/70 or WLP 802 or Diamond. I have used all three of these yeasts and honestly I can't tell much difference but 34/70 is my preference.

Thank you for the recipe! None of my attempts have been great so this is helpful. Seem like a lot of carafoam to me but I can’t speak from experience

It's higher than their recommended usage of 5-10% for sure. Mine is 14% and feel that is the sweet spot for this iteration. I have used varying percentages of carafoam, carahell, carapils, munich and vienna malts and combinations of those malts. Cheers!

My version of “Nearly Nirvana Pale Ale" (this year's Big Brew Day recipe) made with Cascade hops that my dad grew!




This batch was brewed in honor of a good friend (and big fan of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale) who is moving away. We got to enjoy our first glass together a few days ago! Details here: https://andybrews.com/2023/05/15/beam-me-up-pale-ale/

Memory Lapse Pale Ale pairs with jumbo roasted peanuts while watching the NBA playoffs after a long day in the office (formerly known as the guest bedroom). Cheers!

That looks great! The plants in the background are thriving too.

How is it? Is that a Novalager bier?

Yes, it’s Nova Lager. It is a nice lawnmower beer. I am happy with it.
