This recipe is adapted to my brewhouse and ingredients from Jennifer Talley's "Session Beers" book.  I believe it is a take on Firestone Walker's now retired "Pale 31" ale. Very tasty and refreshing, going to be on regular rotation at my place.

 

Enjoy!

Thanks for posting.  I have that book so I will take a look at this recipe in there.  Looks refreshing and I have everything other than the Willamette but that should not matter.

Looks solid to me.  We'll need a follow-up pic of the finished beer.
