Beer Style: American Pale Ale 
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 gallons


Adapted from '10A.35 American Pale Ale' in the November/December 2016 Zymurgy magazine (original recipe found on page 31). The original recipe was for a 17 gallon batch and converted to the standard 5 gallon batch. This recipe falls pretty perfectly within the BJCP guidelines for an American Pale Ale. Note the ABV is 4.5%, which is a bit low for a homebrew, but is close to the 4.8% of the original recipe.


  • 8 LBS 10.5 OZ Pale Millet Malt; or 12 LBS 2 OZ Pale Rice Malt (hulled and/or naked varieties); or any combination of the two
  • 1 LB 12.75 OZ Munich Millet Malt
  • 14.5 OZ Vienna Millet Malt
  • 2.75 OZ CaraMillet Malt
  • 1 OZ Dark Rice Malt
  • 0.5 OZ Biscuit Rice Malt
  • 0.68 OZ Chinook Hops
  • 1.92 OZ Cascade Hops
  • 1.03 OZ Mandarina Bavaria or Magnum Hops
  • SafAle US-05 Yeast
