Woodstock Nevada Pale Ale
I’m a fan of most beers, but I have to say that Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is still the benchmark beer for me.
I know it’s been around a while and others have expanded on what they have done, but it’s a classic and just perfectly balanced. It’s the beer that first introduced me to the big, west coast cascade style beers that I love.
I know most SNPA clones use mainly cascade but I’ve recently really taken to Simcoe too so I’ve added plenty here and seeing as this isn’t a clone, it’s fine.
I actually came out with 20L at 1050 here. I did a very long mash over many hours and then let the wort stand overnight before boiling. Maybe the extended mash had something to do with it.
