Stone and Wood Pacific Pale Ale CLONE

Perhaps our most popular recipe, and for good reason. This beer epitomises sitting back with the mates on a lazy sunday afternoon. An easy drinking pale ale that still retains a beautiful hop flavour and aroma thanks to a generous helping of Galaxy hops.

Pils/Lager Fresh Wort
300g Caramalt Grain malt
30g Cascade Hops (15 min boil)
20g Galaxy Hops (0 min boil)
20g Galaxy hops (dry hop)
American Ale Yeast (WY1056) or Safale US05

1. Well in advance of preparing recipe, place 5 litres of water in a fridge and chill
2. Place Caramalt in 1 litre of hot tap water and steep for 30 minutes.
3. Strain the grain through a sieve into a saucepan. Rinse grain with another litre of hot water into the saucepan and discard the grain.
4. Bring grain wort to the boil and simmer 30g of Cascade hops in a boiling bag for 15 minutes.
5. After 15 minutes, turn off the heat and add 20g Galaxy hops. Steep for 10 minutes.
6. Remove hop sock and pour hot wort into the fermenter.
7. Add the fresh wort to fermenter and top up with chilled and tap water to 20L at 20-25°C. Stir vigorously for 5 minutes.
8. Add yeast, seal fermenter and store in cool conditions
9. On day 4 of fermentation, place 20g of Galaxy hops in a sanitised hop sock and hang in fermenter. (If kegging, hang the hop sock in the keg after transferring the beer from the fermenter). Complete fermentation as normal.
