Eclectic Pale Ale (EPA)

Source: Warren White
Recipe added: 11/25/98

Great after 2 weeks in bottle! Superb Head Retention and 2 yeasts & Brit. & German Hops give it a Pale Ale Character but with a spiciness! Weizen culture gives the beer a slight pleasing tartness! Colour was a brown/copper colour! Only problem is I drank the @@##%%$ thing within 3 weeks! Ahh well you know what they say! The proof of the pudding ...
