Honey Wheat Pale Ale

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

beerWell I’ve never tried a wheat pale ale. Come to think of it I haven’t even heard of one with honey either. But it’s what you guys voted for, and it’s what I brewed. Right now it’s bubbling away in the primary. It turned out far darker then I intended though. So here is the recipe I used

7 lbs wheat dry extract
3 lbs honey
6 oz 40L crystal malt
2 oz 80L crystal malt
4 oz carapils malt
.5 oz chinook hops at 60 min
.5 oz amarillo hops at 20 min
.5 oz amarillo hops at 3 min
.5 oz cascade hops at 3 min

The alcohol for this is in the Imperial IPA range with the hops down in the American Pale Ale range. The reason I have it this way is that I’m worried the hops flavor may be to strong for the blank pallet of the wheat malt.
