- Calculated for higher efficiency, always seems to happen on small beers with my False-bottomed cooler setup.
- Carbonated low, under 2 volumes- primed each keg with 2.2 oz of cane sugar at 70 degrees for 2 weeks
- My brewing software tells me that this is a slight under-pitch, I have not noticed off-flavors. Feel free to use a starter if you like.
- Hopping is flexible for both time and variety. I've made it with US saaz and really enjoyed the results. I have also used a flameout addition before.
This is the beer I brew when I'm starting a new "cycle" or when I hit refresh on my brewing. After living in hotels for the last two years, it was something I truly missed about home.
I started brewing bitter with Jamil's Recipe from brewing classic styles (excellent, of course). And then moved on to variations of Bob's Pride of Raubsville.
This was one of the simpler ones, ditching new trendy malts for old reliables biscuit and 120.
This is a really simple beer, with which, I've made minor tweaks. I don't always make it the same way twice, but this is the most common version of it.
