Default Anyone up for a challenge?

In SF, there is this place called Magnolias bar and pub, and they make fantastic beer. They have a mild ale, and on their website they have the characteristics and ingredients of the beer. Can anyone help me back formulate the recipe? Here is the info:
Sara's Ruby Mild

OG: 1.042
BU: 15
ABV: 3.9%

Ruby red with a sweet, malty fruitiness and a hint of black cherries. Neither as strong nor as dark as its namesake (from the Sarah Hughes Brewery of Dudley), but still a classic West Midlands mild: low in alcohol, thirst quenching, but rich in flavor.

Malts: Floor-malted Maris Otter; crystal malts; wheat; chocolate malt; flaked barley
Hops: Fuggles

HELP!! THanks!

Jason

Five gallon recipe @ mid 70s conversion efficiency

6 lbs MO pale malt
1/4 lb crystal 55L
1/8 lb crystal 90L
1/2 lb chocolate malt
1 lb wheat malt
1/2 lb flaked barley

1 oz Fuggles @ 4%AA for 60 min

Wyeast 1028 London Ale yeast

I don't know what Magnolia's beer looks or tastes like but this should make something in the ballpark.

My guess is they mash it high (156-158) and short (45 minutes max) to keep the malt profile high and the ABV low.

Have you directly asked them for the recipe?

I visited San Francisco last summer and have myself a Magnolia's t-shirt. Tasty brews and pizza

BigED, I would back off on the 1/2 LB of chocolate to .21 or .24 LB as it will be black and very bitter from too much chocolate. Your recipe does not look bad otherwise. I changed the crystal malts because 55L and 90L is unavailable to me. I would follow Biermunchers advise on the mashing temp too.

I entered it into Beersmith to check this out.

Like this:

Amount Item Type % or IBU
6 lbs Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM) Grain 74.91 %
1 lbs White wheat (3.0 SRM) Grain 12.48 %
8.0 oz Barley, Flaked (1.7 SRM) Grain 6.24 %
4.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 3.12 %
2.1 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM) Grain 1.62 %
2.1 oz Chocolate Malt (450.0 SRM) Grain 1.62 %
1.00 oz Fuggles [4.50 %] (60 min) Hops 17.3 IBU
1.00 items Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 15.0 min) Misc

Beer Profile Estimated Original Gravity: 1.044 SG (1.045-1.056 SG) Measured Original Gravity: 1.010 SG
Estimated Final Gravity: 1.012 SG (1.010-1.015 SG) Measured Final Gravity: 1.005 SG
Estimated Color: 12.1 SRM (11.0-18.0 SRM) Color [Color]
Bitterness: 17.3 IBU (20.0-40.0 IBU) Alpha Acid Units: 4.5 AAU
Estimated Alcohol by Volume: 4.26 % (4.50-5.70 %) Actual Alcohol by Volume: 0.65 %

Thanks a lot for the help! I have not asked them directly for the recipe, but I think I might go there tonight for my birthday happy hour! I'll see what they say. Otherwise, the recipes look great, and I will probably brew this if I can get hold of some fuggles. Thanks!

Jason
