I about to start a 3 gal / week progression of British ales. I'm going to make an ordinary bitter, brown, porter, sweet stout, and dry stout, in that order, all derived from highly rated recipes here on HBT.

I'm following your recipe as a template for my ordinary bitter. It's my first all grain attempt (though I've done many almost-all grain partial mashes - so it isn't a momentous occasion). I scaled the recipe to 3 gal. I'm following the 80:10:10 base:crystal:sugar rule of thumb, except subbing 8% biscuit in place of base malt, so it will be 72:8:10:10 base:biscuit:crystal:sugar. Not too much biscuit I hope, but I wanted to get enough in there to taste it, for educational purposes. Anticipated OG: 1.039, 34 IBU (Fuggle & EKG).

Going to start brewing it right now!

I wish you all the luck! I think 8% biscuit is enough to make it come through very well.

Cheers!

Bob

Bob I have to give you credit for an AWESOME recipe. This is a great beer. I have already bought the ingredients to brew it again. I did use WLP002 instead of S-04 though.

Where do you think this is coming from? With the low OG, the sugar and lowish mash temp, I would not think this would come out creamy. I've made 2 bitters before and they seem a bit on the thin, dry side.

I finally got around to brewing this today. Went smooth. Ended a little higher SG but I boiled off a little too much. Used Magnum hops for boil instead of Bobs original recipe but the rest of the recipe is pretty close. Will post when I taste it down the road.
Thanks NQ3X'(AKA...Bob) for the recipe

Jeez, guess I never posted a review. Apologies Bob! Anyway, this beer turned out really great. It's superbly balanced, so that you can taste everything (malt, hops, crystal, etc.) without any one element overwhelming the overall experience. For this reason, I think, this beer is also super quaffable - it's very easy to drink 3 or 4 (or 5 or 6 ...) without getting tired of it. It's thirst-quenching, but also interesting, and really really really gets that British feel right. As right as I've been able to get it, at least!

I had 0.75 lbs of Biscuit in my recipe, but honestly, I couldn't really taste it. I think the MO does fine by itself for that British bread-y quality; next time I'm just going to leave the biscuit out. I should also say that after 3 weeks in the bottle my batch tasted pretty grassy (not sure why...?); after another 2-3 weeks or so, though, the grassiness mellowed out a lot, and instead became the enjoyable Goldings earthiness that I'm more familiar with.

I also personally like the fact that this is such a simple and basic recipe - I'm planning on making this one my base to try out different ingredients and techniques to see how they impact the final product (next time I'm going to try mashing a little higher, eg). This is not to discourage anyone from making the recipe as is, though, since while it makes a fantastic canvas, it's also simply outstanding on its own. Many thanks, Bob!

I'm planning of giving this recipe a go this weekend. On a whim, I'm thinking of throwing in some toasted coconut. Good or bad idea?

Thanks for the review, Palefire! I'm glad it worked out for you.

Charlie, let us know how it worked, will ya?

DCP - I really couldn't advise it.

Cheers, all!
