I’ve brewed a good amount of pale ales and they’ve come out really well (one of them got me a medal). This brings me to a new recipe I created for my hockey team (I play once a week in a league). I made a clean, drinkable pale ale in January and it was a hit, that was where I started. I got the idea for the victory malt addition while looking at AHA recipes. It’s a biscuit style malt with, “toasty, biscuity, baking bread, nutty, clean” flavors, “with an aroma of baking bread” per Briess. Now i wish i used more!
