I'm not sure if I ever posted this one, but I have made it numerous times as extract and AG and I'm making it right now. You could argue that it doesn't fit neatly into a category, but it's a smooth, easy drinking beer that is good anytime of year and it goes well with various foods as well. For those who don't like beers unless they are at least 50 IBU, this is not your recipe. You can drink this beer all afternoon & night and not get tired of it... and you won't sound like a blithering idiot either. It's also good for using less precious hops.

Memory Lapse Pale Ale

7.25 lbs American 2-row Pale Malt
1 lb Crystal 60L
12 oz Malted Wheat
(mash everything around 152)
5 to 5.5 AAU of Mt Hood pellets for 60 minutes
White Labs 01 California Ale yeast (1st choice) or 1056 or US-05.

OG: 1.049, FG: 1.012, IBU: 23, SRM: 10, ABV: 4.8%


I try to ferment this beer between 60 and 65. It's a very simple recipe and can appeal to a wide range of beer drinkers from newbies to beer snobs. Cheers.
