Default All-Grain - Special Biiter - Brewed "on the ones"

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Wyeast 1968
Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.8
Original Gravity: 1.045
Final Gravity: 1.014
IBU: 32.5
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: Copper
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10 days @68F
Tasting Notes: Lots of

Edit - tasting notes were cut off. Should say "Lots of 'warm bread crust', a little bit of toffee and a clean, pleasantly-bitter finish." Also - "Biiter"? Yikes...can't type.

Fermentables:
9.50 lb Warminster Floor-Malted Maris Otter (95%)
0.50 lb English Extra Dark Crystal (5%)

Hops:
1.25 oz UK Kent Goldings [5.8%] (60 min) 25 IBU
0.70 oz UK Kent Goldings [5.8%] (15 min) 6.9 IBU
0.70 oz UK Kent Goldings [5.8%] (1 min) * 0.6 IBU

Notes:
Single infusion @155-156 for 60 minutes. Got a slightly higher efficiency than normal for my setup (78-80%), so diluted after cooling with ½ gal of filtered water.

I've been very happy with this beer - at 4.1% abv it's very sessionable but the higher mash temp and floor-malted Maris Otter yields a satisfying and surprisingly complex final product.

The idea for this simple recipe came from Drew Beechum's take on the SMaSH concept: "Brewing on the Ones": 1 base malt, 1 crystal malt, 1 hop, etc. If you haven't seen it, check out Drew's presentation on the interwebs.

Enjoy and thanks!
