Parrot Head Pale Ale

It’s time to brew again!  It’s been a while since I was on a major brewing roll in July, and the hops are calling me.  I haven’t brewed a pale ale in ages, so in honor of my upcoming Jimmy Buffett show at the Shoreline Amphitheater, in late October, tomorrow I’ll be brewing Parrot Head Pale Ale.  I’ve had a White Labs WLP001 – California Ale starter going since last Tuesday (and fed twice:), so I ought to have a great fermentation.  It’s a very simple recipe:

    The brew day went well. OG was 1.064 and the wort smelled wonderful. This morning there was a 2-3 inch krausen head in each carboy. Hopefully it doesn’t go wild as I couldn’t find my bow off tubes…
