The recipe for the beer we brewed, Long Hot Summer APA

20l batch
5kg Minch Pale Ale Malt
0.4kg Munich Malt
0.25kg Crystal 120 EBC
0.2kg Wheat Malt

(All hops in pellet form)
25g Magnum 60mins
20g Amarillo/20g Citra 15mins
20g Amarillo/20g Citra 5mins
20g Amarillo/20g Citra 0mins

Whirlfloc added at 15mins
Yeast Cal Ale WLP001

NOTE: After 48 hours the fermentation hadn't kicked off so I added a sachet of US-05. Everything went smoothly after that. Beer tasting will be in a future episode.
