Australian Pale Ale (150 Lashes style)

Our take on James Squire 150 Lashes. Brick Road Gold Lager malt is already hopped to the perfect level for this delicious Pale Ale. Use the yeast under the lid, or use an extra packet of clean Ale yeast. Mix with 1kg of Brick Road Extra Light DME and Dry hop with 25g Amarillo. Top to 21L for approx. 4.2% ABV. Old school good.

  • 1 30 litre fermenter
  • 1 Large mixing spoon
  • 1 5 litre jug


  • 1.5 kg Brick Road Gold Lager
  • 1 kg Brick Road Extra Light DME
  • 1 11.5g Fermentis US05 Yeast
  • 25 g Amarillo hops


  • Clean and sanitise fermenter, spoon, cup and jug.
  • Fill the cup to 3/4 full with cold brewing water. Sprinkle in the dried yeast and gently stir in. Cover.
  • Soften the malt cans in hot water for about 5 minutes.
  • Pour 2 litres of boiling water into your 5L jug. Open the can and pour the contents into the jug.
  • Mix the concentrated wort and water well, then pour into your fermenter. Add 500g Brick Road DME. Don't worry if the DME clumps - it will dissolve over time. Top up with cold quality brewing water to 21L for approx. 4.2% ABV. Ensure the wort temperature is 9 - 22 degrees celcius. Vigourously stir the wort with a large spoon to oxygenate it. Gently pour in the cup of yeast slurry and gently stir into the oxygenated wort.
  • Seal the fermenter lid and insert airlock. Ideally ferment at 18-22 degrees Celcius for 10 - 14 days.
  • On Day 5 of Fermentation, add the 25g Amarillo hops. If you can, add the hops inside a hop bag tied with plain dental floss, and remove after 48 hours.
  • After 10 days, check the gravity. If the SG remains steady for three days, fermentation is complete. If in doubt, leave a few more days for better results. Keg or bottle your brew.
