.264 lb Crystal Malt 60L
1 oz Chocolate Malt
1oz Northern Brewer, First Wort Hops
1oz EKG (45 minutes)
1oz EKG (0 minutes AKA flameout)
Feel free to round off at your convenience
Any advice out there on which malt extract to use to replace the Maris Otter?
I just bottled a version of this with 6lb Maris otter LME from Williams instead of mashing. Steeped the rest at 152F for 30 minutes before adding the extract and boiling. OG and FG were spot on, 4% abv.
It's perfect. Exactly what I was looking for. A classic pub bitter like I had in the UK and can't find for the life of me here in the states. Only thing I would do differently is give it two weeks instead of one in secondary for the Northern Brewer flavor to integrate a little more, but hopefully that will work itself out in bottle conditioning.
