End of Summer Pale Ale

This was the first time I used hop pellets in ages. Filtration took forever. There was a ton of wort I could not get through the filter and ended up having to put in almost an entire gallon of water and the end to bring back of to five gallons, dropping the OG from 1.070 to 1.054. This recipe is a slight modification (more grains, more hops) of the Shannon’s Pale Ale recipe from Hops and Berries.

    Whole hops and a hop bag might be the ticket.
