.264 lb Crystal Malt 60L
1 oz Chocolate Malt

Hopping schedule:
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'm looking at getting the ingredients for this, but had a couple of questions...

1. Is that really just 1 oz of chocolate malt?
2. Does Boddingtons count as an ordinary bitter or a special bitter? Using 6 lb of light dry extract in Beersmith suggests an OG of 1.057 (ABV of 5.49), too high for an ordinary bitter. Would it hurt to drop the malt to 4 lb?

Thanks! This will be only my second batch ever, so I'm trying to get my ducks in a row.

In my own opinion, the smooth mouth feel and creamy head puts the original boddingtons into a sub-category of it's own. I would call it an unusual ordinary bitter, if that makes any sense!

An unordinary special bitter, an inordinately not-ordinary bitter ... but how much extract to add

4.5 lbs of dry or 5.5 lbs of LME You could also use
MARIS OTTER EXTRACT 6 LBS @ Williams Brewing
for a little more authentic taste. If you do a partial boil I would use the same hops and add the majority of the extract in the last 15 minutes of the boil to keep the utilization the same.

I disagree with the post you quoted saying you have to go AG for more in depth. Proper recipe formation is independent of the type of brewing and this recipe can definitely be properly formulated with steeping grains and extract.

Ordered! Thanks. [Also got some UK Golding hops from them, as my LHBS only had Cascade.]

Got mine going last night. OG was a touch low at 1041, it seems a bit dark, and it hasn't started bubbling yet (13 hours after pitching). But I'm not worried just yet! This was my second batch ever. How important is keeping a constant temp while steeping the grains?

Hey guys, can anyone tell me how "hoppy" this comes out? I know the modern-day Boddington's isn't very hoppy at all, but I've never tried the original one. Would a girl who hates hop flavor but usually enjoys bitters and ESBs enjoy this one?
