(Makes 5 Gallons) We recently had a simple, yet exciting idea: What if we brewed the same recipe, used the same yeast, but changed one thing - the flavor, aroma, and dry hop additions using one hop varietal. That way we could take two beers that are close to identical and pick out the differences in just the hop flavors and aromas! And thus, the Single Hop Experiment was born. This recipe is based off of a simple Pale Ale: Ultralight malt extract, Crystal 15L, Magnum bittering hops, and then a single other hop for the rest of the additions. The malt in this recipe is basic and fairly neutral, the bittering clean and consistent, but the flavor and aroma from the late hop additions will vary; sometimes dramatically! Ever wanted to know what your favorite hop really is? Brew a few of these different Single Hop Experiment recipes to find out!

The Cascade Single Hop Experiment - Extract Beer Kit
This beer kit was my first attempt in home brewing. I have been fermenting everything else (vinegar, sauerkraut, kombucha etc.) for years but never beer. I purchased this kit and made this beer and have been hooked on home brewing ever since. So simple. I was totally amazed how clear and spot on this american pale ale turned out. I next moved straight on to All grain recipes and am planning to make this using all grain. Love the cascade hops. Great lacy head citrus aroma nice mouth feel and great hop finish but not at all over hoppy. All around well balanced Pale ale. My grown kids have renamed it PaleAl and are also fans.

Best batch I've ever made
A very refreshing beer for summer. Leaves a clean feeling in your mouth. Thoroughly pleased with this recipe. Would do this one again. The grapefruity tones were more pronounced when the beer was super fresh; but they weren't overpowering.

Great, fun kit.
The single hop experiment is a great way to experiment with various hop flavors.
