Hope you have more luck than I did, I do not scientifically examine every (cross that out) ANY aspect of my brews at this point. Midwest was OK, but mine didn't come close. I now have an all grain that was right on last time. Grains are crushed, yeast is started I am going for a second round as everyone and their brother liked the first 10 gallons.
Here it is in case you or someone else wants to try it:10 gallon batch
18 lbs Maris Otter 2 row malt (I used American two row first 55 pound sack)
4 oz. Chocolate Malt
4 Oz. Crystal Malt
3 oz. Black Patent Malt
1 oz. Target - 60 min
1 oz. East Kent Goldings - 15 min.
White Labs British Ale Yeast (WLP005)
