Epic Pale Ale (New Zeland).

Marc Olivares

Project Description

The base beer was from a recipe By Epic Brewing in Auckland New Zealand.
I was first turned on to this beer from a podcast of Can You Brew It: Epic Pale Ale- The Jamil Show 08-30-10. After brewing the original “Can You Brew It” recipe, I started making changes to more readily available grain, and played with yeast and temps. What follows, is a beer I found to be a pretty dang enjoyable. (the original recipe can be found here)
After a recent trip to New Zealand, I was able to try the Epic Pale ale at a local craft beer bar, and though it was pretty tasty, I think I like my rendition better… maybe its the Utah water 😉

OG: 1.052
FG: 1.011-1.012
IBUs: 23.2
SRM: 8.3

NOTE: Wait ten minutes after flameout before adding the whirlpool addition.
