1st Place - Pale Ale

The RUCK Extreme Homebrew Competition

This method produces 2 separate Pale ales from one brew day. Soak 1 oz of vodka with 1 oz of hops in a mason jar for each of your 5 gallon pale ales.

The hop method maximizes hop efficiency and eliminates late boil hopping/whirlpool/hopback. Before flameout, fill each jar with boiling wort and loosely cover with lid.
