American Pale Ale – All Grain

Statistics

General Info

The second in my series of single hopped American-style pale ales. This time with Bravo hops (see this link for linage).

Brewed with reverence and humility for all military personnel, US and Allied, that put themselves in harm's way daily to protect the freedom I take for granted every day.

Comments

Added 8 grams of gypsum to brewing water (first brew with the whole house filter).
