High Country Special Pale Ale Recipe

High Country Special Pale Ale Recipe Instructions

This recipe is available as an Aussie Brewmakers Recipe Kit, order no. 19830

 This recipe is an Aussie Brewmakers original. It is a ‘take’ on an Australian Pale Ale with some fruity hops overlays. We call it our High Country Special Pale Ale as the first batch was tasted high up amongst the snow gums on Mt Stirling overlooking the Mansfield district below. We think it is a top brew – and the recipe is another great introduction to experimenting with hops and wet malts for the beginner or ‘tin kit’ brewer.
