Got some noble hops around?  If so, sounds like it's Belgian pale ale day!

Either a BPA or a Tripel if you don't have any specialty malts.

Oh, I live one block from LHBS, so I can get more ingredients. I just want to use up some of my pilsner malt supply because I have more sacks than malt storage containers right now.

I don't have "noble" hops, but I have "noble type" hops, which I actually tend to prefer... As to the Belgian Pale Ale, I noticed there wasn't a recipe for it on the homebrewopedia. Does anyone have a tried-and-true BPA recipe I could look at?

Pils malt to about 1.050-55.  Hop to around 30 IBU with Hallertauer.  1 oz. Sazz at 10.  Ferment in the mid 60s.

I think that's the most simple and straight forward recipe I've ever seen.  I like it.

Thanks!  I forgot to add to mash at 150ish.
