Based off realbeerguys recipe: https://brews-bros.c...ld/?hl=mild ale

 

10 gallons!

 

10 lb Thomas Fawcett Golden Promise

3 lb CMC Pale Ale Malt

1.5 lb C40

8 oz C100

12 oz Chocolate Malt

 

some kind of hop just for bittering.  not sure which one yet but since it's only for IBUs I'm thinking it won't matter too much.

 

ferment on verdant IPA yeast.

 

 

so on the malt bill I changed nearly everything based on what I have.  I didn't have maris otter.  I don't have C60 or C120.

 

thoughts?

another darker "crystal" I have is special b.  it's pretty old but since it's so highly kilned I'm guessing it's still fine to use.  I'm not sure if a hint of raisin would be bad here though.

 

side note:  that reminds me that some time I wanted to make a special b heavy beer with flaked oats and brown sugar.  it could be like oatmeal raisin cookies minus the sweetness.

I see realbeerguy mashed this sucker at 160F!!!

 

I don't think I've ever mashed that high.

I think for bittering I'll use nugget. Also, because I like saving the environment I'll only boil for 30 mins.

I just need to figure out the water and recipe formulation will be complete.

I have a very similar recipe that I made when I was focusing on low abv beers a few years back. Very good. Mine was right at 4.0%. What was your OG?

1.044.  I'll be checking the gravity today to see where it ended up.

1.012.  so low 4s ABV.  very drinkable already and actually not completely cloudy.  I haven't chilled it yet.

so I can 100% recommend this beer if you like English ales.  The verdant IPA yeast works great for it and has just enough yeast character for me.
