I think the 50/50 sounds good. That's in both cases.

Well I brewed my version of this beer up this weekend. As per your suggestions I used the 1056 Yeast, fuggles hops in place of the goldings, a 50/50 mix of carapils and crystal 15L in place of the caramel pilsner and a 50/50 mix of the melanoidin and caramunich in place of the special roast. The brew day went fairly flawlessly except that I found it hard to maintain a constant temperature with my electric stove (first time brewing on it). All in all I think I did alright though. Looks like it might even be a little red! Fermentation took a little time to really get started but appears to be well on its way. Not too shabby for my first partial extract brew. Really looking forward to drinking it. Let's just hope it turns out (wish me luck).

Thanks again for all the help.

Well it's been nearly three weeks. The beer spent a week in the primary and almost two weeks in the secondary. I would have like to let it sit for a few more days but I am going to be away from home for a while so I decided to bottle yesterday. Racked the beer on top of some corn sugar (that was boiled in water for 5 minutes, then cooled) and stole the obligatory half pint for sampling (of course).

I had a friend over to help with bottling duties and split the half pint with him. We both agreed that the beer was quite good (albeit flat). I had about 2 pints left in the bottom of the bottling bucket when I ran out of bottles. When I said I'd just dump the rest my friend said "no way you're tossing that, pour it in a glass and bring it here!". About 5 minutes later he said "you'd better brew more soon cuz this stuff isn't going to last".

I apologize I didn't post a pic but the camera batteries were dead. I'll make sure it's ready when I crack a bottle in a few weeks.

Thanks again for all the help. I think this beer is going to be great!

I'm glad to hear it turned out well. That's awesome. Now for the agonizing wait for carbonation!

Let me know how it tastes in a few weeks.

Well the beer has been bottle conditioned for almost 2 months. I've been very impressed with this beer. Will definitely brew this one again.

I've uploaded a couple of pictures into my gallery for those who are interested.

Looks right on with exception for the extract. The little extra bit shouldn't hurt at all.

Per Your PM - Make sure to boil 2 gal when starting out, this should be just fine for hop utilization. My goof on the fermentation. Those are weeks!

BTW - the 1 minute hop addition is for aroma & taste.

Default Schlenkerla your opinion please


So here is what I ended up with.

2 cans Coopers amber. 6.6lbs
Cara-Pils 8oz
Special Roast 4oz
Biscuit 2oz
Chocolate 2oz
UK Kent Golding 5aa
Willamette 5.8 aa

Yeast wyeast 1332 Northwest closest I cold come to the original from my LHBS.

So I steeped for 30 mins, but had some heat control issues I think the temp was a bit closer to 78* brought to a boil after steep. and added the extract. I brought back to boil then pitched the Kent golding for 60 mins. at the 55 min mark I added the Willamette, for 5 min add. cooled in Ice bath for about 20 to 25 mins to 80* and added to the cold water. Boiled with 2 gallons of water.

I would like to know what you think about the recipe.
