Brewing update 07-08-09

Although I am into the wee hours of morning, I just finished cleaning up after my second (and first with real ingredients and equipment) attempt at brewing beer.

Malt (unhopped extract):
3 lbs Coopers Plain Light
3 lbs Muntons Amber

1.5 oz Amarillo Pellets
0.5 oz Amarillo Pellets added at last minute

3.5 gallons San Diego Tap (boiled)
1.5 gallons Ramona Purified Reverse Osmosis

11.5g Safale US-05

Gravity: 1.060

This is my first attempt at a pale ale (5 gallons!) and my first attempt using my new equipment. I’ll know some of the story in 2 weeks when I bottle.
