Default All-Grain - Fat Squirrel clone

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: Nottingham
Yeast Starter: Not if using dry
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.051
Final Gravity: 1.012
IBU: 29
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90
Color: 14
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 at 62
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 at 62
Tasting Notes: slightly roasty, with a touch of bitterness. Pretty close to Fat Squirrel, I think!

6 pounds Pilsner malt
1 pound Caravienne malt
1 pound Munich malt
1 pound flaked Oats
12 ounces flaked barley
4 ounces chocolate malt

.50 Magnum (FWH)
1.00 Saaz (10 minutes)

Mash at 154 for an hour. Sparge to reach boil volume. If using the pilsner malt, boil for 90 minutes.

When I was out of pilsner malt, I used maris otter malt, and it came out great! I also used chinook for bittering, since I was out of magnum. That worked well, too.

This recipe has been brewed numerous times by Bernie Brewer and he has photos in this thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/fat-squirrel-clone-47671/

Yooper gave me this recipe last year at this time and I liked it so much I have brewed it three times since. This is a wonderful English Brown recipe! The only difference is I use Wyeast London Ale instead of Nottingham, but I'm sure it comes out great with the Notty!

It did, but I would like to try the London ale yeast, because I think some fruitiness would be better than the neutral yeast in this one.

Also, I toasted the oats in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes, to give it a bit more toasty/roasty flavor. I honestly don't know if it made much of a difference, though.

First Wort Hop - you basically add your hops to your kettle once you start heating the wort

Yep, that's what I do. Throw the hops in, and allow them to float around and steep in the hot wort coming out of the MLT.

I am going to make this. A friend just happened to give me 6lbs of pilsner recently I didn't know what to do with. Also, I was born and raised in SW Wisconsin. Grew up with this stuff.
