Peach Smoked Pale Ale

Source: Steve Keeley
Recipe added: 01/29/99

This ale has a very active ferment. After the ale has been in the secondary ferment stage for aprox. 3 weeks you will want to rack it again to get it off the large amount of yeast sediment you will have. Let it go another week to 2 weeks and then bottle. I prime my bottles with 1tsp. of corn sugar and I get a fine head on the ale. It will have a pleasant smoke undertang,very light, and a beautiful light caramel color. As it gets older in the bottle it only gets better! Enjoy!!
