2018 Harvest Pale Ale

I may do two Harvest Ales this year.  I haven’t decided what to do with my Blackberries and Grapes so for now I’ll focus on a brew for my Cascade and Centennial hops first.   Here’s the basics:

Grain Bill

lbs Grain
10 Brewer’s Malt 2-Row (Briess)
1 Caramel Malt – 40L (Briess)
1 Flaked Oats


Temp Step
160F Pre-heat strike water
154F Mash In – 60 mins
170F Mash Out – 10 mins
170F Sparge


  • 2 tsp Irish Moss T-15


  • 7.5 oz whole cone wet Cascade hops @ flame out, whirlpool
    while chilling to 175F.
  • 2.5 oz whole cone wet Centennial hops 4 days into primary


  • 3/8 tsp lactic acid
  • 1 tsp gypsum

This beer has been keg’d and is conditioning now.   I’ll provide an update when it goes on tap!
