Nordic Pale Ale Recipe – Secret, Ancient Yeast From Space?

Stay at home and join us for a brew day where we make a pale ale with wild yeast that came from a wooden barrel in Norway. This yeast was sent to us by a fan of our channel and we had no idea how it would turn out, but experimenting with wild yeast is always fun because it’s not something you can buy at the store. Even without this weird yeast, this video gives you a great and easy to follow pale ale homebrew recipe that you can use with a regular store-bought yeast like California Ale Yeast from White Labs. A pale ale is a perfect middle ground between a hoppy IPA and a light lager, so they’re perfect for just about anyone to enjoy.

This is an unintentionally hazy pale ale with a simple grain bill and just enough hops for a medium bitterness. We used Palisade hops from Yakima Chief Hops in this beer which have an apricot and floral aroma to them. This is a great recipe for beginner homebrewers and for people with more experience. If you haven’t already, try harvesting some wild yeast. It’s super fun and you never know what you’ll get.
