The Palisade Pale Ale keg is essentially empty and it was overdue to get something in the fermenter. Perhaps its the weather, perhaps the time of the year, but somehow it took me a while to figure out what the next beer should be. I’ve wanted to brew this beer for a while (years actually) as I only Oscar Blue’s DPA but rarely get to enjoy it. So it was about time.
There are a variety of clone recipes out there, some appear more accurate than others if you compare it to the official website and other available information.
I ultimately ended up using the recipe published by both, AHA and BYO, with some tiny tweaks to accommodate my setup hopefully better as well as available hops. The biggest adjustments were scaling back from 10.5# of Mo to 10#, and adjusting the hop quantity to get the same IBUs at the end of the day.
Love2Brew came through on their great selection and fast shipping again!
