Belgian Pale Ale

Unread postby RobW » Mon Sep 08, 2014 12:06 am

I ran this simple recipe yesterday.
It's a refreshing beer for the warmer weather and one I try to have available most of the time.
Normally I use Wyeast 3522 Ardennes but this time I'm trying 3864 Canadian/Belgian.

Dingemans pils 4.5 kg
Weyermann light Munich 0.5 kg

55
63
70
76

I ended up with 23l at 13Brix
Pitched at 20oC and I'll leave it there for 24-36 hours and then let it ramp up slowly from the heat of fermentation.
Usually I expect it to get to about 25oC over 4 or 5 days.

Simple recipes are great! No need to overcomplicate things ;)

What did you hop it with? And how long are those rests?

Sorry, I left the hops out.
Magnum at 30 min to 30IBU and 20g of Saaz at 10 min.
The rests were 55 10 min, 63 40 min, 70 30 min and 76 10 min.
