this is my every day pale ale, I've made this several ways but with this hop combination, and a good whirlpool at 0 its very good, you can lower the IBU by using less Magnum but I like it this way, keep in mind that the efficiency is set to 85%, if you brew this at a lower efficiency you need to add more 2 row or it will come out weak, I also use gelatin to clear this
