    Experimenting with American Ale

    I ran out of recipes to brew so this weekend I bought a few more including the "buy one, get one" American Ale extracts. Now I am contemplating how to rationally dress them up from just the basic extracts. I have a few extra items from past recipies that can be used and I bought some Pale LME to upgrade the basic America Ale to a deluxe version. Here are the ingredients I could conceivably use and I wanted to get input from the group. - American Ale Extract - 2 x Booster Packs (new smaller size = to one booster pack of old) - Pale LME - Carapalis Malt - 4 oz - 2 Row Malt - 2 oz - Standard MR. Beer Brewer's Yeast that comes with extract Questions - - should I use the boosters and the Pale LME? Or just the Pale LME? - will the Mr. Beer standard Yeast work if I do a partial mash with the Carapalis and / or 2 Row? - Should I partial mash with both Carapalis and 2 row? Or just Carapalis - What would the resulting beer be if I did all this? - Should I add any other additional items? Honey? Brown Sugar? Thanks for the thoughts!

    American Ale Review

    Brewed the American Ale Standard Refill back in the beginning of January and tried one this week after the typical recommended 3-4 method. Knew it was bound to happen, but after eight straight brews that were really good to excellent, I was a little disappointed with this one. Perhaps further conditioning will improve results. The appearance was very good. Not much of an aroma, and the taste is pretty bland -- pretty crisp, malty, not much of a hop presence -- nothing special. Your basic brew -- reminded me of when you first start drinking when you're young and you have a "beer is beer" approach to drinking, so something nondescript doesn't bother you all that much. That said, this will be fine to have with a burger or chicken wings or on a hot day after mowing the lawn, but would not be my go-to if I just want to sit back and enjoy a beer on its own. I've read that some people do not use the booster -- is it b/c it tends to give the beer a strange sugary taste? I feel like that came through a little bit -- like just gave this an artificial-ness that has not been present in the other beers I've brewed with Mr. Beer. Kevin
