A truly tranquil beer, the Glass Lake Pale Ale is our take on the Deschutes Brewery Mirror Pond Pale Ale. We kept the malts simple, using maltodextrin and Crystal 10L, the lightest crystal malt we offer, to add a little body and color to the smooth malt backbone that our ultralight malt extract provides. Cascade is the only hop varietal in this recipe, being used from bittering all the way to the dry hop addition!
The result is a very smooth and balanced beer, complete with the classic floral, citrus & grapefruit aromas and flavors that Cascade hops are so well known for.

Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.
