Every bit as good as claimed, lacing all the way down to the bottom of the glass. Will definitely brew again soon.

this is your recipe

85.6 6.00 lbs. Briess LME- Gold America 1.035 4
7.1 0.50 lbs. Caramel Pils Malt Belgium 1.034 2
3.6 0.25 lbs. Special Roast Malt America 1.033 40
1.9 0.13 lbs. Biscuit Malt Belgium 1.035 24
1.9 0.13 lbs. Chocolate Malt America 1.029 350


I am browsing my LHB online store and have found comparatively close ingredients. the site is http://www.beernut.com/zen-cart/ and have found the following goodies.

1. 6.0 lbs coopers light malt extract (LME)
2. 1/2 lb Dingman's Cara 45. (caramel malt) from your recipe
3. .13 lb Dingman's Biscuit Malt
4. .13 lb Dingman's Chocolate Malt
5. 1oz EK Goldings Hops
6. 1oz Willamet Hops

I am missing the 1/2 lb special roast malt Americas and they don't have the WYeast 1272 American Ale II.

They have white labs stuff in ales. should i go with the Irish Ale Yeast or the California ale yeast? And what can I do with the missing americas malts

Well I finnally got to brew this today. Unfortunately my LHBS was out of EK goldings HOps and they didnt have the best alternatives either(Which im pissed about because a month ago they had Goldings). So I eneded up using willamente for both hops additions, will this screw up the taste?? Also they didnt have LME only Extra LME, how will this effect the beer? thanks.

I doubt the extract will have much affect. The willamette will change the character but I bet it will taste great (wish I could try it!). It will still be a malty beer just with a bit more American taste. I'm interested to hear back about it once you try it.

My LBS only had the 3.3lb LME Briess jars, would adding 6.6 instead of 6.0 of LME be an issue? I can measure it out but if it isn't going to be a big deal then I won't go to the trouble.

Looking forward to this one!

how much priming sugar did you use for carbing? I am a week into fermenting and I cannot wait! I am just going to leave it in the primary for 3 weeks and then bottle, hope it turns out good.

I made this back in the end of December. Sat in primary for 11 days at around 62 degrees, then transferred to secondary for 2 weeks at 62 degrees. Decided to keg it, so transferred to the keg and wanted to carb it pretty quickly. Turned up to about 30 PSI and shook the keg around for about a minute. It carbed up pretty fast, and has now been in there about 2 weeks. The beer tastes very sweet when I try it... almost yeasty, but I cannot really tell. Do you just think that it needs to settle a bit more in the keg before it is good and ready?

Use the irish ale yeast. The missing malt will leave out the roasted taste. Not a bad change but it won't be the same.

The hops will not change it much if you add the right amount. If the alfa acid of the hop is way different it can change the ibu or effect the bitterness. As for the malt the beer will be lighter in taste.

Special B will make it taste quite different. It will have a raison-like taste to it afterwards. Thats not necessarily bad. Just different.

Use five oz of corn sugar to prime.

Your problem is that 62f was too cold. Its sweet because it wasn't done fermenting. Now that is carbbed its alittle late to do much of anything. You could yank it from the fridge, let warm up, siphon back to a fermenter, after a few days repitch some yeast. It can't tell you how it will turn out after all of that. Id do that rather than drink sweet beer.
