For S&W Pacific Ale try slow ramp from 50C to 64 over about 20 min and hold 64.4 for 70 min. Mash out probably not necessary but I always do it, raise to 76C then sparge. Electricity much cheaper than LPG so that is the reason I always mash out. If you have any Voyager left, Pale Schooner or Atlas work well for this.Was asked to make a Stone & Wood Pacific Ale, I made it and my neighbour brought a bottle of the genuine ale to compare. Glad he did, solved a problem I have had with the Holgate ESB.

Pacific Ale clone, added some crystal, quite a bit darker, dry hopped at a fairly high rate so more Galaxy coming through, mashed at 67 C more mouth feel. If I made it again would mash lower, dry hop with less hops no crystal. Neighbour was more than happy.
Why did it help me in pursuit of the Holgate ESB ? I have been following BJCP guide lines for the style! Holgate load up the bittering hops, they aren't following guide lines just making a great beer.
