    Going to attempt Yoopers APA that I found on another forum and that seems to be up there with Ed Worts pale as a legendary home brew recipe.

    For what its worth this is my intended recipe for tomorrow, after I have converted to the metric system (insert Pulp Fiction line), switched to the Weyermann equivalent malts and reduced for my batch size of 15l (I reduced by a factor of 0.9 rather than 0.75 though since I never get close to 75% efficiency). I just tried to keep the % of grains of the original and aim as close to 1.058. I have gone with a Cascade and Summit version as recommended by another poster rather than the all Cascade original...

    Malt:
    Pale Malt 2kg
    Vienna malt 1.2kg
    Munich malt 800g
    Carahell 200g
    Caramunich III 200g

    Planning to mash at 65 celsius.

    Hops:

    Cascade 30g @60 mins
    Cascade 15g @ 30 mins
    Summit 15g @15 mins
    Summit 15g @ Flameout

    irish moss 4g @15 min

    Yeast: Safale US-05

    Dry hop (consecutive not concurrent):
    30g Cascade 3 days
    30g Summit 3 days

    Any last minute advice?

    I use Summit and Cascade in one of my standard beers (got one carbing as I write) and it is really enjoyable. However I use Summit for bittering (15% AA !) and Cascade for the later additions. Apparently some folks get odd flavours with using Summit late on (garlic?!) although I have not noticed any whatsoever.

    The garlic comes from the grower leaving the hops on the bine too long and not from when they were added to the boil.
