Novice Gold Ale
Time in primary fermenter - 2 weeks
Allowed to age and pressurize in keg ~1 week
Description: Not too bitter, not too sweet with just enough cascade to leave you wanting more.
Malt Base: 6 lbs. Northwestern's Gold Malt Extract
Hops: 5 HBU's Cascade (bittering)
Results: The boil went great, fermentation was simple. Tastes very good! Sweet taste with fresh hops. Slight caramel taste. I am amazed at how well this turned out for my first brew. Cleared up after another week in the keg, after which is was shortly all gone! Even though it was called "novice" I would happily brew this again. It was much more simple because there were no grains to steep before boiling and only one round of hops. It limits the different types of beer you can make but the taste was great.
