WARNING: Kettle losses > 2% detected which throw off OG calculation for extract/partial mash recipes in batch target 'fermentor' mode. Solution: Reduce kettle losses, misc losses and hops absorption in equipment profile, OR set batch target to 'kettle' and do a full wort boil. See batch target FAQ.

updated to 1.003 measured FG.

tasting notes :

update 12/4/2019.
brewing tonight. Consider dry hopping half the batch?
also got response from Kris at Stone. he suggests using something called "maltose negative yeast" which apparently has been used for NA beers. I'm not immediately seeing anywhere I can acquire this stuff. Possibly if I dont get any fermentation action I could consider adding some wine or champagne yeast.

some yeast strains detailed here.
update 11/11/19
copied recipe from the all grain version. this extract version should be able to cook up start to finish in an hour or less on the stove. hoping to see whether this is feasible or not. currently we are at 0.82% abv which is a little high, but we're really using minimal ingredients here. the thought is to give it some base malt to ferment but get most the flavor from a heavy crystal malt addition.

the OG is so super low. im buying a FG hydrometer so i can try to take accurate readings. im worried i wont be able to tell any change in gravity before/after fermentation.

it is possible that we could do this all grain and purposely mash in such a way that the wort is not so fermentable, that way we could use more malt (flavor) without contributing too much more alcohol. work in progress. there is also the boil off idea...
original notes from all grain recipe formulation :
thought from talking to athletic rep at GABF. will just mash enough 2 row to get to 0.5%. then add crushed specialty malt to the pot as the wort heats up - shouldnt get any diastatic points from doing it this way (but we should be able to detect if it added any fermentables by the OG/FG). simple 30 minute boil with cascade hops should make a really low abv pale ale.

TODO : analyze appropriate BU/GU ratio, and IBU for pale ale.
