India Pale Ale 8810 is an ale made with predominantly pale malt. The higher proportion of pale malts results in a lighter color.
5 Gallon yield, malt extract recipe
8.5 lbs. Liquid Malt Extract
8 oz. Munich Malt
8 oz. Special Roast Malt
8 oz. Maris Otter Malt
.75 oz. Cascade hop pellets for bittering (AA=6-7%)
1 oz. Simcoe hop pellets for aroma
.25 oz. Cascade hop pellets for aroma
Dry English Ale Yeast (White Labs #WLP007) or your favorite ale yeast
Option: Dry Hop with 1 oz. Hallertau in secondary fermentor.
For extra awesomeness 1 oz. whole leaf Simcoe in the keg!
Heat 2-3 gallons of water to 160 degrees. Turn off heat and (using a muslin or nylon bag) steep the Malt for 10 minutes, then remove the grains and bring the liquid to a boil. Turn off heat and stir in the malt extracts until completely dissolved. Return to a boil, set a timer for 60 minutes, and add the first .75 ounce of Cascade hops. Add the remaining ounce of Simcoe and .25 ounce of Cascade hops the last minute of the boil. After boiling, cool to 80 degrees or less and top up with water to just over 5 gallons before pitching the yeast. Aerate well and ferment at 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit.
