Pax River Pale Ale

Source: Tim Neall
Recipe added: 08/20/97

This is an adaptation a recipe for SNPA from The Homebrewers Recipe Guide. There are slightly more hops because this is a partial wort boil. This recipe is very close to the real thing. It looks and smells just like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. There is a little bit more of a hop twang in the finish, but it is excellent. It needs to mature for almost 8 weeks before it tastes great, but it is worth the wait.
