I’m brewing a basic American pale ale/ ESB to test the flavor profile of a new hop. The ingredient list is pretty straightforward- though I am trying some new things with the grain bill and with different mashing temperatures than I usually use. After listening to Charlie Bamforth on the BeerSmith podcast (http://beersmith.com/blog/2011/09/28/head-retention-with-the-pope-of-foam-beersmith-podcast-23/) I am substituting flaked barley for my usual torrified wheat and doing the major mash rest at just below 150 degrees instead of in the mid-150’s. If you’re home-brewing and haven’t checked out the podcasts, they’re well worth the 35-50 minutes that each episode usually runs.

• For the base recipe look at the Panther City Pride recipe (in both 4 and 5.5 gallon batches).
