In Topic: Whirlfloc smells fishy

Sniff some Irish Moss. It's seaweed derived and smells all the time, but I've never had an odd flavour in a beer. I believe Whirlfloc is just Irish Moss in tablet form. They probably mask the smell for commercial reasons. ie. exactly what you're doing. It smells funny so you hesitate using it.

Apa. Simcoe will be most present.
Or enter one bottle as apa, one as ukpa.

Cheers! Yeah after a bit of reading into styles, APA might be more appropriate.

Most likely a pale ale, hybrid of US and UK ingredients, depending which yeast you used.

I used S-04 so it's more an English Pale I guess. I was going to enter it in a local comp for some feed back and was scratching my head as to the category... Worst case, I go wild card!

I made this up and tried it today. The recipe was the same as posted, with the addition of 250g Cara-pils and only 30g dry hopped for 5 days. (I got a bit scared of too much hop aroma)

 

I hit the numbers dead on, so it's around the 5% ABV mark bottled.

 

And dam it's freakn beautifu!! 

 

The only thing I'm wondering, is what to classify it as? A Pale Ale of some sort??
