since I've already missed the OG I'm just going to let the big beer ferment out but I might try to stop the small beer from drying out if I catch it in time. ...I'm also not fermenting at the ridiculously high temps either. the big beer is at 17C and the small is at 20C

...and i just poured the first pint of http://barclayperkins.blogspot.ca/2012/05/lets-brew-wednesday-1987-boddingtons_16.html that I brewed a couple weekends ago. It was really only brewed as the yeast starter for the Hardy Ale but it is pretty awesome. I must confess I did a few subs - I only had 8oz of Bairds C75 so I used dingmanns special b to make up the rest of the crystal malt, gambrinus canadian pilsner for the 6 row and 4oz of debittered carafa sp2 for the caramel colour. I like this a lot. I have now brewed the entire 1987 line of milds and they were all great. The 1987 Boddies IPA didn't really interest me but I should brew it just to complete the set.

I brewed Ron and Kristen's recipe for the Courage 1914 RIS last week. I have a couple of other things that I intend to brew first, but I'll probably brew a Burton ale or the Hardy next.

I still have about a dozen bottles of the one I did a year and a half ago. The bret C version is pretty awesome - all the hoppy and roasty harshness is gone. Right now I'm drinking the second pint of the 1987 Boddington's Mild rebrew. This time with TF MO, Bairds C75, Briess 6-row, and 3oz of carafa sp2 for a caramel colourant sub. I really like this one but I left it on the yeast too long and its got that slight tartness 1318 gets if left to long.

My plan right now is to do either the 1987 Boddy Bitter (if i want another light beer) or the 1941 IBSt (the <5% "session" imperial stout) or the 1952 mackeson's milk stout

..unless there is another recipe posted. I really miss the Let's Brew posts. I can only read so much beer history without drinking it

It's not me who's stopped them. I think Kristen is just too busy with his brewery to write the recipes.

On the other hand, I've a book of homebrew recipes coming out in January:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/search?index=books&linkCode=qs&keywords=1592538827

I'll probably restart the Let's Brew series with recipes I've written.

gbx, for the Boddie's did you "mash in pretty wet for a short time (~25-30min)...[to get] more body in the finished product" ?

Cool, but I will buy that book! If kristen is too busy, isn't there anyone else out there who can help? If not, I like reading the brew log style recipes you have in your books without all the details Kristen adds.

That was the goal but it ended up being closer to 45minutes and "wet" was 15L for the ~6lb grist.
