I'm not sure what the difference is in US and UK Malt I'm sure you'll be fine.

As for ageing it doesn't take a long time to age.

I normally start tasting after 3 weeks in the keg or bottle.
The best bet is to get another brew on ASAP so you have other stuff to drink as well because I always find the last of the brew is best after a couple of months.

I glad your pleased with the recipe.
Enjoy .

I brewed this up last night as a PM, but due to an error in measurement, I wound up with an O.G. of 1.071!

I am hoping that this stays well balanced with the hops, but not optimistic.

FWIW I used 5lbs of grain and 6 lbs of DME. I definitely need to learn how to convert grains to extract and not overwhelm my LHBS with these recipes.

Oooh, I never saw this thread before. Thanks Orfy, this is happening next on the brew schedule I think. $13.99 per 6-pack isn't exactly affordable. 5 gallons for $30-$40 sounds better to me.

I wondered if anyone had any input on tweaking the extract recipe. I picked up supplies today in extra amounts thinking I can subtract down to the correct amounts. On hand I’ve got:

0.5 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine
0.5 lb Crystal Malt – 50/60L
0.25 lb Chocolate Malt

6.0 Lbs of Extra Light DME
3oz Styrian Goldings pellets
3oz Fuggles pellets

Should I go with the established recipe, or had anybody found a better brew by increasing any of the levels?

You may need to adjust the hop additions to match the hop utilisation you get. (Dependand on the size of your boil)

I don't know how big a difference it might make, but my LHBS carries both. US Chocolate Malt is about 350 SRM, UK Chocolate is about 450 SRM. In the all-grain 5.5 gallon recipe that means a bump from 5oz (.33lb) of UK Chocolate to 6oz (.375lb) of US Chocolate to keep the color in the proper range. At least that's how I figured it.

I don't think you'll notice any if much taste difference.

I finally got around to brewing this tonight and it smells fantastic! I ended up going with:
0.4 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine Grain
0.4 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L Grain
0.1 lb Chocolate Malt Grain

Steeped in 2 gallons of spring water at 155-170 for 30 min.

3.0lbs of extra light DME @ 00min
3.0lbs of extra light DME @ 40min

00 min into boil 1oz Styrian Goldings
00 min into boil 1oz Fuggles
30 min into boil add 1oz Styrian Goldings
30 min into boil add 1oz Fuggles
50 min into boil add 1 tsp Irish Moss
60 min into boil add 0.5oz Fuggles
60 min into boil add 0.5oz Styrian Goldings

The smell coming out of the pot was fantastic and warranted a few tastes to uh... "check progresses" The only problem I ran into was I got almost no cold break tonight. I did 2 submersion ice baths over the course of 40 min. I pulled trub up though the siphon from the get go and went until I got a hop clog with about a pint and a half left in the pot. Tragically I left it behind. Total recovery into the fermenting bucket was just shy of 2 gallons. Topped off to 5 gallons, threw in some Nottingham yeast, and mixed but adding a few more pints of water.

Thanks so much Orfy! I'm ready to start another batch based only on the brewday sampling!

Thanks, Orfy!

Just transferred my "Butchered Hobgoblin" (I just simplified it a little - mostly in Hops additions - for outdoor brewing) to secondary on Sunday, and it is DELICIOUS. We brewed 10 gal of it, split between myself and a coworker.

Cheers!
