American Pale Ale 3

The original recipe is listed at American Pale Ale. Since I never seem to be able to find a set of ingredients more than once, this time around there were numerous substitutions. Let's hope it doesn't impact the flavor.


1/2 lb Lt. Crystal malt
1 lb Munton's plain extra light dry malt extract (DME)
1 lb rice syrup solids
2 oz maltodextrin
4 lb IronMaster American Light Beer hopped liquid malt extract (LME)
