Palerider APA

Source: Tim Neall
Recipe added: 11/29/98

This is a variation of the HBD Palexperiment recipe. I used the same grain percentages but with different grains and with dry hopping instead of late kettle additions. I also pitched a swelled "normal" smack pack of 1056. The lag time was about the same, if not a little shorter. The beer itself a beautiful light amber color and only has a slight haze. It has a wonderful white head and a gorgeous hops aroma and flavor. I liken it to Tupper's Hop Pocket Ale. In comparison to the original recipe, this one turned out lighter in color and body, with a less pronounced caramel sweetness. I tried them side by side. They were different but similar.
