Word of His Power Galaxy Pale Ale
« Reply #1 on: December 29, 2012, 04:38:11 AM »
This is a beer I designed with a specific hop in mind. Galaxy is a hop from New Zealand, which is known far and wide for its aromatic properties. It's a high alpha-acid hop, but in my opinion, you're wasting your money on it if you're using it too early in the boil. As you can see, I'm using it primarily late in the boil.  This is a beer which may change your mind if you don't like hops.  Designed to be similar to Deschutes' Mirror Pond Pale Ale, but with a wonderful, fruity aromatic hop kick.  I've been told by many people that this is the best beer they've ever had.  :)  It's designed to be an all grain brew, but you could substitute pale malt extract for the American 2-row if you were of a mind to do an extract version (I'd recommend 10.8 lbs of pale malt extract (dry). If you need to drop the recipe to 5 gallons, you should be able to cut everything in half.)  I wouldn't recommend subbing out the WLP002 yeast, though.  If you can't get white labs yeast, you can go with Wyeast 1968, London ESB yeast.  The british yeast really helps this beer achieve untold levels of awesome. Residual sweetness, slight fruity esters really compliment the late addition Galaxy Hops.

P.S. I'd attach the Beersmith recipe file, but I can't attach a bsmx file to this post.  If you're really interested in that file, PM me your e-mail address or something. :)
