American Pale Ale – All Grain GONE



Making this version again, but increased the amount of Munich from 1.5 lbs to 2.75 to kill off the remaining grain in an old bag.  Used the recovered yeast from the original version of this and built it up with a starter.  

20110903 - Racked to secondary in two glass carboys.  Used 2 oz in each carboy of home grown Cascade hops picked last weekend.  Smelled and tasted great, although a little cloudy still.  Dry hopping probably won't help with the clarity, so this may need to be gelatin-ized.  

20110910 - Racked to kegs.  Cleared up pretty well even with the dry-hopping.  Started forced CO2 on both kegs.  Actually got about an extra gallon that went into a 3rd keg to be consumed first.
