King Brian I. Thank you for the recipe, it's delicious. I plan to brew this again this weekend, but was wondering if it would turn out as good with Marris Otter. I have both Marris Otter and 2 row and wanted your thoughts. I forgot to take my numbers last time... does anyone know the ABV?

Just a quick thank you for this awesome recipe! Brewed it back in the end of September. Just put it on the gas about 2 weeks ago. Finally had my first glass last night. FANTASTIC is all I can say! Very smooth and clear. I am going to make another batch next weekend because this one will go fast!

Hey guys. Brewed this a few months ago using the extract recipe. Loved it, finished it, and made it again. This time I did it as my 2nd all-grain brew. Still unsure about my efficiency and all that, so I upped the grain bill a little.

I ended up using:

8 lbs Maris Otter
2 lbs of Crystal 80

Kept the hops the same with the exception of a full ounce for the FWH.

Ended up with 5 gallons of 1.058 wort. I'm using Nottingham yeast, and I will report back when it's done!

Thanks for a great recipe.

I made this recipe back in September and bottled it before I went away to a military school. When I can back I chilled a few bottles down in the fridge and popped a top that night. What an AMAZING beer! This one will be in constant brew rotation. It is currently my favorite. It’s a beer that almost all my friends enjoy, even the IPA and stout lovers.

With mashing at 150 and adding a pound of syrup, this doesn't finish too dry does it? I plugged the recipe into BeerSmith and I had to raise the mash temp to 156 to keep the final gravity above 1.010

This recipe is easily modified to suit individual tastes. The OP (last paragraph) makes it very clear the finish is dry. I like it dry as it is, but not everyone will of course.

I know when I rebrew for example I'm going to back down the IBU to keep the sweet-bitter balance a little more where I like it. Because it finishes dry my palate doesn't require as much bitter to balance. Mine came out more APA (again, to my palate) than amber ale and I followed the recipe almost exactly. Still very good recipe.

Down to my last 1/2 doz of these...must...brew...more....

@teddy -- not too dry at all. BTW this recipe works well with Wyeast 1007 too, I used that since my LHBS was out of S-05.

Great to hear! Mine is one week in to fermentation. I went with WLP 051 because I had some in the fridge needed to use it. Im excited to see how it turns out.

I inadvertantly mashed my first batch of this recipe at ~146 due to my thermometer being way off and me not knowing it. I still thought this beer was excellent. I have a second batch fermenting now that I bumped up the grains and sugar to hit an OG of 1.060 while maintaining IBUs. We'll see how it turns out. This recipe is a solid one and a great place to start playing with if desired.

Made a batch of this today. Almost 2 years since I've brewed this guy, but I've been craving it for awhile. It's finally getting a little colder here so hopefully we get some snow this year to enjoy this amber in.
