This recipe is an Aussie Brewmakers ‘take’ on the Little Creatures Bright Ale. This English style pale ale has a subtle maltiness balanced with woody and floral hop overtones. It has minimal bittering and is a great choice as a session beer. If you like the Little Creatures commercial offering then this kit will produce a bright ale in the same style and will be sure to please. This recipe is another great introduction to experimenting with hops, wet malts and steeping grains for the beginner or ‘tin kit’ brewer.

  • 1 x 1.7kg Black Rock Pale Ale Beer Kit

  1. Clean / sterilize all equipment including fermenter, paddle, mug and jug (used for steeping)
  2. Discard Black Rock Pale Ale Beer Kit tin yeast and sit beer tin along with the Briess CBW Pilsen Light LME container in hot water for 10 minutes
  3. Boil 1.25L of water in kettle
  4. Steep 150g Cracked Munich Grain in 1L water for 20 minutes
  5. Steep 1 x 12g of Cascade and 1 x 12g of Motueka Finishing Hops in 250ml of boiled water for 10 minutes
  6. Boil 2L of water in kettle
  7. Add 1.5L of boiled water to fermenter
  8. Add the Briess CBW Pilsen Light LME along with 250g Light Dried Malt Extract to fermenter and stir to thoroughly dissolve
  9. Add contents of Black Rock Pale Ale tin to fermenter and stir thoroughly to dissolve
  10. Pour 250ml of boiled water into each of the Briess CBW Pilsen Light LME container and the Black Rock Pale Ale tin. Stir to dissolve remaining contents in both, then add to fermenter
  11. Strain 150g of steeped Munich Grain into fermenter (do not add grain to fermenter) and rinse with water
  12. Add cold water to fermenter to 22.5 ltrs and test temperature – make sure it is between 18-24 degrees before pitching yeast
  13. Take initial hydrometer reading
  14. Add steeped 12g Cascade and 12g Motueka Finishing Hops bags and steeped water to fermenter
  15. Pitch 10g M44 US West Coast Yeast and stir gently
  16. After primary fermentation activity has ceased (check with hydrometer) add both of the remaining 1 x 12g Cascade and 1 x 12g Motueka Finishing Hops bags to the fermenter and gently stir in with sterilized paddle (dry hop). Leave these hops in the fermenter for 72 hours
  17. After 72 hours bottle as per normal. If you cannot bottle after 72 hours, remove all of the Cascade and Motueka Finishing Hops bags and bottle within 3 days. Bottle conditioning of 4 weeks is recommended for full flavour to develop

N.B. If kegging, add 200g of Dextrose at step 8
