and the caramel flavors are produced well with boiling down just pale malt with roasted barley?

I live to please.

Make sure to ferment cool and use the Scottish Ale yeast. While this is a session beer and can be turned pretty quickly, it benefits from a period of cold conditioning.

Good luck!

Calories: 130.65 kcal per 12.0 fl oz

Alcohol: 3.3% (3.2% - 3.9%)
Bitterness: 14.5 (10.0 - 25.0)

Ingredients:
8 lb Maris Otter Pale Ale Malt
3.0 oz Roast Barley
1.0 ea WYeast 1728 Scottish Ale
1.75 oz Fuggle (4.8%) - added first wort, boiled 20 min

Schedule:
Ambient Air: 70.0 °F
Source Water: 60.0 °F

Notes
You will notice that there are no specialty malts in the grists; caramel/toffee character is developed by boiling down a portion (approx 1 gallon) of the first runnings long enough to reduce by half. Color can be difficult to predict, so you may have to experiment with varying amounts of roasted barley over subsequent batches to find the perfect percentage.

Alternate recipe (traditional kettle caramelization technique); I've come to the conclusion that reducing the entire volume of the first runnings by half is probably excessive, particularly for those brewers who are mashing thin (2+ qt/lb). In order to make this easily accessible for all, I recommend boiling down a gallon of the first runnings. I tend to mash at the conventional 1.25 quarts/lb, but adjust my strike volumes to get nice round volume measurements into the tun. I also find that FWH Fuggles blends very well with the rich malt character while still remaining within style guidelines.

right on time flyangler. I was just starting to try to figure this out in software so I can order my next grain bill soon. Thanks for the post. To be redundant, your recipes are great.
