Summit Brewing Company Summit Extra Pale Ale
(5 gallons/19 L, all-grain) OG = 1.049 FG = 1.010 IBU = 49 SRM = 12 ABV = 5.2%
First brewed in 1984, this English-style pale ale is bronze in color with caramel, biscuity malts balanced by an earthy hop bite and juicy, citrus flavors. This remains a popular beer on tap in Minneapolis and beyond.
Step By Step
This is a single-infusion mash. Mix the crushed grain with 3.5 gallons (13.2 liters) of 170°F (77°C) water to stabilize at 152°F (67°C) for 60 minutes. Sparge slowly with 175°F (79°C) water. Collect approximately 6 gallons (23 liters) of wort runoff to boil for 60 minutes. Add hops and Irish moss at times indicated. Cool, aerate, and pitch yeast. Ferment at 68°F (20°C). After fermentation is complete, bottle or keg as usual.
Extract With Grains Option:
Substitute the 2-row pale malt in the all-grain recipe with 3.3 pounds (1.5 kilograms) Briess light liquid malt extract and 2.5 pounds (1.13 kilograms) light dried malt extract, and decrease both crystal malts by 2 ounces (57 grams). Steep the crushed grain in 5 gallons (19 liters) of water at 152°F (67°C) for 30 minutes. Remove grains from the wort and rinse with 1 quart (1 liter) of 175°F (79°C) water. Add malt extracts and bring to a boil. Follow the remaining portion of the all-grain recipe.
