Ingredients (All Grain5 gal)

  • 6 lbs Northwest Pale Ale Malt; Great Western

    Northwest Pale Ale Malt; Great Western

    A slightly darker base malt than our Premium 2-Row, our Northwest Pale Ale Malt is produced from well-modified, Western-grown 2-Row barley, with a kilning regimen based closely on traditional British Pale Ale malting practices. Contributes a malty complexity to beer flavor and aroma. Excellent in American Pale Ales and American versions of British beer styles.
