Just thought I'd check back in and you know how my beer turned out. It was one of my best to date, very malt forward, good body, thick off white head. Caramel (maybe even a little toffee) in the aroma, the taste was toffee with a little grassy hop flavor.
The recipe I ended up using varied a bit just because of what was available to me at my LHBS
9# Marris Otter
.5# Roasted Barley
.5# Crystal 40L
.5oz Williamette 60mins
.5oz US Goldings (Leaf) 60mins
.5oz Williamette 15mins
.5oz US Goldings (Leaf) 15mins
Mashed at 152 for 60mins
Fermented with WLP011 European Ale - 2 weeks @ 65, 4 days moving up to 71, 3 days @ 33.
7.5 Gallon Batch
OG 1.054, FG 1.013
I used the US golding because the store didn't have EKG, same with WLP011 instead of WLP013. I think the US goldings contributed to the grassy notes I got. I also notice quite a bit of yeast flavor when the beer is too cold. The color turned out a little darker than I was intending, it's a deep amber or copper, almost black in a normal pint glass (looks great in a pilsner glass though). When I brew it again, and I'll definitely be making it again, I'm going to lower the roasted barley to .25# and find real EKG.
Thanks for the help guys, I hope this is able to help someone else!
