Default Single Malt and Single Hop

I've been threatening to do it for I while.
Today is the Day.
A single malt and a single hop for a Single malt beer.
Marris Otter and Fuggles. What else.The best combination ever.
I think I'll go for a 4% medium temp mash with balance bitterness.


I'm considering making my next 3 batches like this one at 4% one at 5% and one at over 6%.
I want to get back to basics (not that I've strayed far) to enable me to get my technique honed.



Quote:
Brewed using Golden Promise malt. Grown in the north, it is one of the oldest varieties of brewing barley and one that has also been popular with whisky distillers. This full flavoured Malt combines with our fine English hops to produce a smooth, mellow beer with a flavour that is subtly different from any other, but as distinctive as a single malt whisky.

Great idea Orfy. What a good way to get to know malt or hop varieties.

Now if we could only get all the new brewers to do this...

I'm assuming you'll be using your usual Nottingham yeast.

I'm getting ready to head into lager season here soon (my crawl space is down to 50F). To dial in my process I'm planning on repeatedly brewing a Munich Helles, 90% pilsner malt, 10% munich and one addition of a noble german hop...

I went simplified today, too, but not to quite that extreme!

I'm just finishing it now.

I hit my pre boil OG on the nose.
I think I overshot my boil by maybe 0.5L to 1L.
I'll take a gravity reading soon.

Yes I'm going to treat this to a fresh un-hydrated Nottingham.

My pilsner was that simple.

German Pilsner
Saaz

I had a good bit of late hops in there, so there's plenty of hop flavor.

Let us know how it turns out.

Orfy, seems like you are doing what most of us are going to be doing next year. Especially with hop and grain prices going up. As for your back to basic recipes I'll bet they'll make a great house ale. Keep us posted.

You've inspired me orfy. I'm a huge fan of UK-bred styles and looking to start buying in bulk. I've got a bit of Fuggles around, so now I can pull the trigger on a sack of MO.

Great learning base too.

I searched far and wide for Fuggles while the HBS's were still selling hops one pound at a time. No joy here. Sounds like a terrific brew.
