This recipe is for 80% efficiency, which is what I get on my equipment.
5.5 lbs Maris Otter
1/2 lb English medium crystal
1/4 lb Special roast
1oz Whitbread Goldings Variety (WGV) 60m to bitter (looking for ~25 IBU)
1/2oz WGV 20m
1/2oz WGV Flameout
Mash at 156 or higher to prevent this beer from drying out too much. You could also go up on the crystal to a pound for a sweeter beer.
This is my house ale and I try to have it on tap all the time. It's nice to be able to have 5 or 6 pints of something and still be able to carry on a conversation.
