Beechworth Pale Ale

Beechworth Style Pale Ale Recipe Instructions

This recipe is available as an Aussie Brewmakers Recipe Kit, order no. 19806

 This recipe kit is our take on the ever popular Bridge Road Brewers Beechworth Pale Ale. If you like the commercial Beechworth Pale Ale offering then this kit will produce a pale ale in the same style and will be sure to please. This beer is almost devoid of bittering hops from an early boil and is packed with floral / aroma hops from both the US and NZ. This recipe is another great introduction to experimenting with hops and wet malts for the beginner or intermediate brewer who wants to take their tin kit brewing to the next level.
