Orange Ya Glad I Made a Pale Ale

a Partial Mash, American Pale Ale by Nicholas Ledoux No Reviews

Notes

I used about .8 oz of fresh orange zest at the 5 minute boil (added with Sterling hops). First time using the immersion chiller, cooled it down to 80 degrees in 30 minutes. Wort was a little murky from the pellet hops. Smelled really orangey.

After the boil, level was at 4 gallons, next time might boil with 6 down to 5 gallons. Had to flash boil some water and add it to get it just under 5 gallons left. Pitched yeast at 78 degrees.

8/1: Racked to secondary. Gravity was at 1.012. Very Murkey beer, needs to settle some more. Some yeast activity evident. Leave on secondary for a week and then hopefully bottle it.
