A world traveler at the expense of Uncle Sam, I got to know Whitbread Pale Ale quite well at an early age. Got back Stateside and missed it. Decided to make my own after and old hippie/artist showed me how he made beer using Blue Ribbon malt and corn sugar. This was about 1973. More later.
In 1975, I attended Washington State University. While there, I brewed serveral batches of Pale Ale. I got good at it. One of my hallmates wanted to know how I brewed it. He watched a couple times and took notes on my methods. Later on, he took my recipe for English Pale Ale and started Pyramid Brewery and used my recipe for his signature brew.
If you don't believe me, ask him!
