I just kegged this today and it is very tasty! I'll be making this again very soon and you've inspired me to experiment with mild ales.

I have no idea how you got the gravity down to 1.009 with a 70C mash though - the best I could get on mine was 1.016.

Thanks for the great recipe!

I plan to brew one of these for Mild Month. How young do I drink this?

BakerStreetBeers 03-23-2008 12:51 AM

I will be brewing this tomorrow (Easter Sunday) and hopefully turning it into a regular on Baker Street in Petaluma, CA. I have questions numbering two for Orfy or any others who may wish to weigh in:

Question the first : I bought a packet of dry nottingham yeast from my LHBS today and prepared a starter with LME and a smittering of chinook hops. It's only been an hour since I mixed this and the yeast is already showing strong signs of taking over this starter with authority. Was this step entirely unecessary? (Having read the instructions on the Danstar packet I think it might have been.)

Question the second : I had some Goldings already on hand and so decided to use them instead of the Fuggles prescribed in Orfy's recipe. According to the recipe calculator at tastybrew.com this puts me over the IBU for the mild style. I don't care about that so much -- I generally tend toward a more cowboy style of brewing, guidelines be damned. In this case, particularly since Orfy's recipe is slightly stronger on OG/ABV than the usual mild so should be able to handle a little extra AAU, right? But I'm curious to know how this change might be expected to alter the final results. I am excited at the prospect of a single hop brew as I have usually had at least two varieties in the mix.

Here is my crude conversion without the aid of brewing sofware.
I'm off to the LHBS in an hour. I'll fudge through it if need be.
Unless the ASST BREWERS: the Dogs can post real soon.

You can drink it at week 3.

EDIT.

I just tapped one at 10 days.

Better at 3 weeks though.

olllllo 04-25-2008 08:01 PM

I'm drinking it at day 14.

bradsul 04-25-2008 08:09 PM

On my last batch of this I will admit to pulling a slightly carbonated pint (residual CO2) right out of primary at 10 days. :o I let it go a couple more weeks after that though, I swear!

olllllo 04-25-2008 08:13 PM

Yea, this would be 6 1/2 pints between day 10 and 14.
