Haus Pale Ale

After some reading on Home Brew Talk about a "great" pale ale by EdWort.  With over 3,820 gallons brewed by 100's of homebrewers I thought it is worth my hard earned cash to buy the  ingredients.  I have to admit, I'm excited to brew this batch.  The recipe is very simple, plus the recipe recommends a dry yeast.

I brewed this on Friday the 20th with a Buddy Eric.  The brew went really good.  I ended up with a brix of 13 which equals out to 1.057.  Fermentation took off quickly.  Right now it is going strong.  

Here is the recipe:
