Recipe Notes

This is an attempt at improving the (still tasty) First Attempt. The cascade aroma I was looking for wasn't there, and so I added a half an ounce of cascade at the end of the boil.

I am not sure if the color for the dry malt is correct (sheet said 8-13?), or if the SG is right (the LME is correct, but the DME had no info on that so I used the 'usual' number from a book).

Batch Notes

Brewing went well, but I forgot to take an OG reading. Fermentation started in under 12 hours.

Bottling Day (2005-06-01 [aka VERY LATE]):
The fermentation stuck for three weeks (low temperature spell caused the yeast to floc out). This, I think, is bad. The gravity was a bit high so I dropped down to 1/2 cup of priming sugar, and am going to hope that nothing explodes. It smells and tastes fine. Optimally I would have racked to another fermentor and pitched new yeast, but I have no car and I am leaving for NC in an hour...

Batch was botched. Drinkable, but they were bombs...Pale Ale 1-B is being remade.
