A more hoppy pale ale - complementary bitterness and malt with a slightly sweet finish. Named after me, of course.
I decided to use Caravienne for a bit of a caramel, toasty character to help ease the drinker into the hoppy finish.
Centennial hops are be substituted for the Cascades for this one. Sadly, the brew store was out of them.
Racked to primary and pitched yeast. The hop bag came open during the boil releasing the contents into the wort. No matter (December 4, 2006).
Racked to secondary and set into the basement to condition (December 10, 2006).
Racked to keg to finish out conditioning and took FG reading. Beer should be ready to drink by mid-January (December 17, 2006).
