Verdant IPA yeast
Moderate or lower og
No dry hopping
Good batch for harvesting yeast for a subsequent IPA


I already have a Porter on tap. I was thinking either brown ale or maybe something lighter and more refreshing. I'm open to ideas though.

4% blonde ale. Citra at 10 & wp. I would even consider just using 100% GP if you have it.

Two other thoughts, dry English Stout or a mild ale. Real beer guy has a good mild recipe if you search in the recipe section. He uses 1318 so I think verdant would work well there.

so I do have about 10lb of thomas fawcett golden promise.  I'd def have to supplement it with another base malt for a 10 gallon batch but I think that would probably be okay.

I've never used inverted sugar for brewing.  is it different than just using granulated?

is this the (dark) mild you were thinking of?

 

https://brews-bros.c...ld/?hl=mild ale

 

 

I have reasonable subs for the grain in there.  what I don't have is goldings.  well, I have some really old styrian goldings I should throw out but yeah.

 

I do have some centennial.

 

not sure if zappa or belma would work here.

That is the one.  I am not sure I used goldings in mine.

I only used it twice for the AK. So, I can't really say how much of a difference it makes but that gooey syrup tastes devine when making it.

sorry what is AK here?

 

for sugar I've used granulated, brown sugar, black treacle, and molasses.  I think of all of those I liked brown sugar the most.

AK is a somewhat forgotten English style beer. I read about it on another forum. I really liked it when I brewed it last year.

funny how no one knows what AK stands for.  I was expecting it to be shorthand for some style I didn't know but that's the actual name :P

So I just sanitized my kegs and fermentation vessel so now I just need to measure grain and water and I'll be ready to brew on Friday. I'm thinking I'll go with the dark mild as I've never made that style before or maybe even had one.
