Jackwagon Pale Ale v0.1

jackwagon : noun : A useless piece of equipment, medicine usually military, ailment used to refer to a mule-drawn freight wagon which had been pieced together from dicarded or substandard parts, and subject to frequent breakdowns. Jackwagons typically were good for only one or two uses, then abandoned or discarded along roadsides and in ditches, and were often re-cannibalized to create new jackwagons.

This one is pretty simple. I wanted hops. I had some LME leftover from… well, lord knows what. And somehow I had a half pound of Victory Malt in my bins. I think Brewing Classic Styles had a plug for doing a slightly toastier Pale Ale or IPA using Victory. So… fuggit, let’s roll and get some hops in a keg. What? I can’t just chuck stuff together and call it beer ?
