Default All-Grain - Redden Bitter

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP023 Burton Ale
Yeast Starter: Recommended
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: -
Batch Size (Gallons): 12
Original Gravity: 1.036
Final Gravity: 1.009
IBU: 29.4
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 8.4
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3 Weeks at ~70dF
Additional Fermentation: -
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): -

EDIT: I've adjusted the recipe to be more user friendly, i.e., decreased the batch size to 5.5 gal and reduced the efficiency to 80%

My inspiration was having certain grains and golden syrup on hand along with Designing Great Beers. Having recently been to the UK and sampling wonderful real ale bitters in the pubs, tasting this brought me right back. The Burton Ale yeast performed exactly as advertised. The pear-like taste is wonderful and grains and golden syrup compliment the hops and yeast characteristics. The maltiness, bitterness and fruitiness work together to form a wonderful Bitter. Delicious!

Thanks, I have a bottle of some type of syrup I picked up in England many years ago. I'll have to figure out what it is and see if I can still use it. I'll assume that shelf life is close to forever.

It's probably OK, but I would taste it before dumping it in the kettle... and make sure it's Golden Syrup and not Treacle or something very different. Also, Lyle's seems to be relatively available now in many supermarkets in with the corn syrups, etc. If I can get it here at a local supermarket in southern Delaware, surely you can get it where you are.

I finally checked to see what I have. I have an old can of Lyle's golden syrup - 454 g, a can of Lyle's black Treacle 454 g, and a glass jar of ASDA Farm Stores Golden syrup - 680 g. So 2 pound cans and a pound and a half jar.
