The boil smelled great- no beer smells better at this stage than a British ale. Pitched the S-04 about 1045 this morning, now waiting for it to start chompin' on the wort.

That S-04 chomped right through my beer in like 3 days, beer was clear as a bell in a week. I actually think I might try the 1099 Whitbread on this next time, give it a little bit of a higher FG. FG on my first was 1.013, which was pretty good. Not too sweet, but nice and malty

Sorry if this has been adressed before, but I just cant go through 53 pages to find it.

For how long can you age this? Should it be drunk young and fresh or can it be aged a little, if so, for how long?

Thanks, and please answer!!

I brewed this 6 weeks ago ago. its been in bottle 3 weeks and there is a big difference from 2 weeks but needs a little longer I believe as mine turned out quite hot, but that is mellowing should be good in another 2 weeks.

My first batch of this lasted for about 4 weeks until we hosted a birthday party. It got so much better and I anticipate it would have continued to improve with age. Time is your friend with this beer.

I think I tapped this at 6 weeks. But like all my beers, every pint was better and better. At 8 weeks it was amazing

I am brewing this one today. I went with Marris Otter as the base malt. It should be great!

So far, this is my favorite beer that I've brewed. So in honor of National Homebrew day, I'm brewing it again on Saturday. When I was weighing out my grains last night, I had just weighed out what I THOUGHT to be my 0.75 lbs of C-60 and dumped it in my bucket on top of the base malt. It was then I realized it was the C-120! Ahhh! I picked out as much as I could without getting the base malt in there, probably got about 0.25 lbs out. So I now had 0.5 lbs C-120 in there so I decided to just add 0.5 lbs of C-60, rather than the 0.75 lbs. Hopefully this will turn out ok, I'm sure it'll be fine. Anyway, also subbing for all EKG, rather than Fuggles. Using Wyeast 1099 Whitbread Ale too. I'm excited!
