Default Benglish Dark Mild

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Wyeast 1968
Yeast Starter: No
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.041
Final Gravity: 1.013
IBU: 17 (Tinseth)
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 13
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 @ 70 degress F
Additional Fermentation: Bottle Conditioned 7 days
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): none
Tasting Notes: Balanced, but full flavored. Lots of roasty flavors a

Grain:

6 lbs. Maris Otter 3L
8 oz. Carafoam 1L
4 oz. Belgian Aromatic 30L
4 oz. Special B 170L
4 oz. Pale Chocolate Malt 180L
1 oz. Peated Malt 3L

Hops:

.5 oz. Fuggles (UK) 5.3% AA @ 90 minutes
.5 oz. Fuggles (UK) 5.3% AA @ 15 minutes

Other:

1 tsp. Irish Moss @ 15 minutes

Primed with 3 oz. corn sugar

Clears fast, tastes and looks probably the most professional of my brews. I think I'd probably up the Special B to 8 oz. next time and take the Pale Chocolate down to 2 oz. next time. 14 days grain to glass, though!

Still have any left of this? If so, how has it aged at this point?

Oh no. People liked it too much for me to keep it around. I try to serve milds, bitters, and other present use ales as quickly as possible to remain authentic. And in hindsight, keep special b as is, down to 2 oz pale chocolate malt.

Agreed. Hard to keep beers best served young around for very long. My bro in law and I always do two separate five gallons batches at a time and bottle exclusively. Mine never last too long, but I frequently find year + old bottles that he's neglected in the back of his beer storage closet. Makes for an interesting tasting experience. Haven't done any mild's, but sounds like an interesting recipe.
