I think that link is broken, but I know which one you're talking about. I would have to make a few small changes, but I think it will still be good.

I guess that's one of the points of homebrewing: I can't find what I'm looking for, so I'll just make my own damn beer.

I posted this in another thread with no luck. What do you guys think?

Sorry if this was already covered, but I can only partial mash so I was wondering if this looked like a good recipe to you guys. I have EKG on hand so that's another substitue I'll making.

2.1lb Muntons Light DME
1lb 2-row
1lb Victory
1.5lb Crystal 60L (Crisp, UK)
6 oz Chocolate malt (Crisp, UK)

1 oz EKG 5% at 40 minutes
1 oz EKG 5% at 10 minutes

I'll have to check the actual AA of the EKG I have, and then line up the boil times to correctly match the IBUs, but you get the idea.

Thanks in advance.

definitely just go ahead and brew your own as it'll be a rare day you'll find a fresh one without some digging around.

I brewed one a few months back with a modified version of Jamil's recipe and its been cleaning up in local competitions.

as for a recipe, use marris otter base if available, a 5-10% crystal 40/60, 5-10% brown malt and only a few ounces of PALE chocolate to give that nice super toasty but definitely not roasted flavor to it.

best of luck

Cheers

Rebel Brewer carries Crystal Marris Otter. I recently used it in conjunction with marris otter in a brown ale, really like how it came out. When I do my mild I will probably use the crystal MO again.

Well I can only partial mash right now, so I can't really use marris otter. That's why I threw in the victory. Check out my recipe right above...seem ok?

Swap out the 2-row for MO. I BIAB and partial mash and use Marris Otter all the time.

Ok so would I drop the Victory then?

I could mash up to 3lb of MO with the rest of the specialty grains.

Or would it need to be like 2.5lb MO and .5lb victory to make up for the DME.
