Got a new sack of Munton's MO to work on, so next week, this is what I'm thinking of tossing in the mash tun:
5lb Maris Otter
0.5lb cane sugar (to be added to the 1° on day 4, as a staggered addition), to help dry the beer out.
Magnum (whole) to ~45 IBUs for 90 min
EKG (pellet) to ~20-25 IBUs, in 3 x 1oz additions at 10 min, 5 min, and a 20-min hopstand
Shooting for ~1.075 or so, for 5.5 gal in the primary.
US-05 will handle the heavy lifting in the primary. If this batch turns out ok/well/great, then future batches will employ a proper Brit strain, likely 1028.
This batch is meant to get a read on the Maris Otter character as a base malt, as I've not used it before now.
