Gladfield American Pale Ale - All Grain Recipe

For our latest brew. we've taken inspiration from New Zealand based malting company, Gladfield - as our local home brew shop (41 Pints of Beer) sell mostly Gladfield malts. We've got a bunch of leftover hops from previous brew days we need to use up, so we're going to take the grain bill from the Gladfield recipe, and adjust the hop schedule to use up our leftovers.

We've dubbed this one the "Kitchen Sink" American Pale Ale in reference to the old adage about throwing everything except the kitchen sink at something because of the mish mash of hops we're throwing at this one.
