Yep, back when I was looking for critiques on the recipe. It's on tap now, and I can't say I'd change anything at this stage. I'm sending a couple out in a swap so I'm hoping to get some in-depth reviews.

Dark Crystal is a British malt, usually in the neighborhood of 60-80L.

Would using Crystal 60 be an ok sub?

I think that will be just fine, though 80L would work nicely too. Brew on!

The yeast choice is very important here; you want something clean with lower attenuation.

Scottish ales are all about the malt, so no flavor or aroma additions or fruity yeast strains.

When are you planning on brewing this? I could bring you a pound of dark crystal to the brew day, if you wish.

WLP028 is the equivalent.

claphamsa 03-18-2009 02:51 PM

I dont have a planned date.... but I make a solid goal of keeping my next 3-4 batches planned out. since MDHB (the closest) is 35 min from me.

I was hoping to have it for summer (everything else I brew turns out imperial like my 6.4% imperial wit) sO I need something to enjoy on a nice 95^ and humid DC day!
