Marginally Pale Ale

Classification: pale ale, all-grain

In an interest to potentially revive a recurring thread, what is everyone drinking and/or brewing? I am drinking an especially malty/nutty pale ale to the tune of the following.

It's fantastic, the head is the best I've had, an inch and a half of richy creamy head that hangs around as long as the beer. The flavor is nutty and malty and very pleasing - in retrospect I might have added another 1/2 pound of pale ale malt. This beer has a remarkably clean taste for an ale, in fact it is reminiscent of a steam beer with ESB overtones.



I used a standard step-infusion mash schedule

Sparge with 15 quarts water at 165 degrees. Prime with honey/brown sugar (1 cup net).
