Saccharification Rest Temp : 151 degrees Time: 60 minutes
Mash-out Rest Temp : 212 degrees Time: 10 minutes
Sparge Temp : 170 degrees Time: 10 minutes



Mash at 1:1 ratio for 60 minutes.

Mashout with approx .87 gallon (grain absorption amount), vorlauf and drain into boil kettle.

Split sparge water into two seperate additions, vorlaufing and draining the mash tun between each addition, (total volume of water will depend on your system).


Hops additions are First Wort Hopping for 1.0 oz of East Kent Golding and .75 oz of Fuggles (the hops go into the kettle while the wort is collected)

.5 oz of East Kent Goldings and .5 oz of Fuggle are added at 5 minutes left in the boil.

Chill to 65 degrees and aerate while transferring to the fermenter, pitch yeast starter and ferment at 65 degrees for 1 day, ramp up to 67 degrees for 4 days and rise to 70 for the balance of fermentation. (If this process is a bit much, a simple 67 degrees for 10 days will work fine as well.)

** I toast my own malt by spreading it evenly on a cookie sheet and putting it into a preheated 350 drgree oven for 16 minutes, stirring midway through for even toasting, place in a paper bag for 7-10 days before using to let it mellow out.

Here is a cell phone pic of the beer, I will update with a better image soon!

Vongo, you are going like this one! Quite opposite of the mild, it is malty but has a crisp finish, and a nice balanced bitterness.

This is the beer that the cat dumped on me recently, rubbed up on the tap handle in the middle of the night and down the drain tube it went.

Looks very tasty!! Nicely balanced and a good colour too!

The grain bill is very similar to what I use as my house brew at the moment. I have fallen in love with a base of 11lb of MO per 11 gal. It really does seem to be the sweet spot for my tastes in an ordinary bitter.

Coming from you, that says a lot! I am going to brew this one up again this week if I get a chance.

It's nic to see a pic of a beer that isn't overcarbonated. Nothing trashes the flavor of a bitter like carbonic bite. It enrages me.

Yup. it's a buggar though trying to photograph a properly carbed bitter as the small bubbles that ARE there rarely show up at all, not even a bit.
