I agree...we need a recipe. This is in my top 5 favorite beers.

Here's a recipe I found on brew-it-yourself.co.uk...

I had a pint of this last night and its the best bitter I've made yet !

It tastes very similar to Belhavens Twisted Thistle which is good because thats what I was aiming for with the recipe.

Very simple recipe :

5 gal brew length

grain

Maris Otter - 4.5kg
Crystal - 0.25kg
Torrified Wheat - 0.2kg

hops

Cascade - 25g - 90 min
Challenger - 25g - 90 min
Cascade -15g - 15 min
Cascade - 12g - 0 min

whirlfloc 15 min

Nottingham yeast

OG 1046
FG 1011

A very refreshing pale bitter with citrus aroma and taste. Perfect for a summers evening .

I'll be brewing this again very soon

edit : forgot to mention that this beer was started on 23rd Jan so its only had 2 weeks conditioning and is crystal clear and very drinkable
Thinking about trying it this weekend, but what's "whirlfloc"?

Bump* Anyone else try this recipe? I just ordered from my "LHBS" and wondering if it is close like Judasbot says, if not I'll post after i find out..

Also Judasbot did you rack to secondary or straight to bottles? and if so what was your time line in the fermentors

Fdemt,

I never got around to brewing this. I'm in the middle of upgrading my setup and haven't welded the tabs on my burner that are required to hold my new keggle up. Once Finals is over(this week), I hope to get back on the ball.

Jbot, Gotcha. I'm just waiting on the grains to get in so I can brew it hopefully within the week. I guess I'll shot for 5-7 primary and 4-7 in the secondary.. best of luck with finals

I had that beer in bottle a few months ago. Very nice and restrained English version of an American IPA. Even my american hop disliking wife thought it was very good. I prefer a bit more hop bittering and flavor, but this is a good one. The recipe looks like it would be about right. That crystal would either be a 40 or 60 L variety in my estimation. I'd say the bittering was probably in the 40's, not too bitter.

mabrungard- Thanks that seems to be right in line with what Im hoping for. Im not a big hop head (yet) so this should be a good starter for me, and the wifey loves this bier +1 for more brewing in the future!!
