As far as I understand, if you are doing full boil AG batch the recipe should scale pretty much linearly. So yeah, cut everything in half.

forgot to say thanks for that. Also, can you toast the grains after they have been milled? I don't have a mill but I can get the LHBS to separate them into a different bag from the bulk and I'll toast them the night before.

I brewed this with 4 weeks in the primary and 1 week cold crashed and it is absolutely delicious. I think the bitter is low and would love to have some advice on that. I have never dry hopped, maybe I need to understand how to do that.

My question is, I don't have 5 weeks this time. I reread the original recipe and it has a 10 additional days at fermentation temp(67F). Is that after the cold crash? I never racked to secondary and was a very clear beer.

then that is:
1 week primary, 2 weeks cold crash, 1.5 weeks secondary -> 4.5 weeks
how different would this be:
1 week primary, 1 week cold crash, 1.5 weeks secondary?

Default 5 ga Or 5.5 ga version?


BM- do you have a 5-5.5 ga version of this? My math is awful so I fear I'll botch the conversion. Also, I'm fairly new so hesitant to toast grain- what is the proper sub?

Thanks much

SH

I brewed this recipe again today. My 4th batch this year! This time around I used Maris Otter instead of domestic 2 row. It will be interesting to taste the difference.

I just poured my 1st pint and it is not good.

I absolutely love this recipe with North American pale malt but with Maris Otter it is over the top bready/malty for my liking. I really didn't think it was going to make that much of a difference but it did. I wonder if toasting Maris Otter had anything to do with it as I've never toasted it before. Thoughts?

I brewed this and opened my first bottle this past weekend - it's without a doubt the best beer I've ever brewed - been brewing for about 6 years (but admittedly only really frequently this year).

I'm actually really upset that I only brewed 11 litres because I'm pretty sure it'll all be gone after this weekend.

Highly recommend brewing this.

Edit: for some reason I didn't read the post immediately before mine. For what it's worth I used Maris Otter in my brew of this beer.

rchrdpdl -

Did you follow the recipe on the first page? If not, will you share your modifications?

I guess I'm most interested in what you used for your base malt - Maris Otter, 2-row, other?

I followed the recipe except I scaled it down to 11 litres. The only change was Maris Otter for the base.
