I just started this two days ago and it is fermenting like crazy. Will let you know who it comes out. I think the next time I will try the AG BIAB method for this recipe which is 11# of 2 row British malt with the 1# of 40L and steep for 90 minutes then use 27% less IBU and everything else the same.

It's a very easy recipe to make and you should have great luck with it. I use this as my standard house ale and actually just brewed a 3 gallon batch with the addition of dried sweet orange peel and ground coriander at last five minutes of the boil.

Interested in a 4 gallon batch - what do smaller batch brewers normally do to change up volume like this? Beersmith?

Also, has there been an tasty update to this that would be decently easy for a beginner such as myself? BIAB I can do. Also, big hops taste isn't my thing just yet...suggestions on removal of some of the last flavoring ones if that is even adviseable.

Thanks, ya'll!

This recipe just went into the bottle, and I will admit, I had to take TWO hydrometer samples, just to make sure, of course.

Flat and warm, it was delicious.
