This is awesome.

Almost a month old here. I did force carb some 2 liters at 12 days....i think those tasted a little better, nice and "fruity". The chocolate seems to come out a little more now. Delicious.

I never topped off with water, so this is a little stronger.

I was inspired to try making a dark English mild after tasting Yards Brewing Company's Brawler. I didn't necessarily want to clone it, but I wanted something pretty similar. To that end, I settled on Mild Mannered Ale. I'm not a fan of strong roasty flavors, so I made two versions of the recipe based on ingredients I had on hand, substituting some Special B for some chocolate malt in the second version.

Version 1
3.25 gallon batch.
3.75 lbs Bairds pale
1 lbs crystal 60
3 oz English chocolate (adding during last 15 minutes of mash)
0.6 oz US Goldings (4.9% AA) 45 minutes
0.6 oz US Goldings (4.9% AA) 15 minutes
S-04

Version 2
2.5 gallon batch.
2.75 lbs Bairds pale
0.75 lbs Crystal 60
3 oz Special B
1 oz English chocolate (adding during last 15 minutes of mash)
0.45 oz US Goldings (4.9% AA) 45 minutes
0.45 oz US Goldings (4.9% AA) 15 minutes

Both times I did a 158 F mash for 60 minutes as a BIAB (so I lost a few degrees during the mash), and I hit OG was 1.041 and SG was 1.010 both times.

Attached is a picture. From left to right: Version 1, Version 2, and Brawler.



I must have messed up somewhere, because Version 1 still tastes a little off (like some weird green beer flavor) despite being in the bottle for 8 weeks. Version 2, on the other hands, makes me happy. It's light, but has some flavor. Compared with Brawler, the color is almost dead on (slightly darker), it's not quite as malty, and its hop flavor is ever-so-faintly stronger. A more refined palette would probably detect more specific differences.

I'm quite enjoying Version 2, and I'm sure I'll make it again.

Cheers for the original recipe!

17 days in primary and I kegged my batch on 3/21/14. I put a blanket of co2 on it and let it sit for a few days while I solved a problem I was having with my regulator. After I fixed my reg the keg was down to about 39 degrees in a ice chest. I put it on 7-9 lbs of co2 and rocked it for a few minutes a few times a day for the next 48 hours. It poured a nice beer with a creamy head. there was a ton of lacing and spiderwebs inside the mug. It's really nice, it has a whole bunch of chill haze but I don't mind.

I drank a few pints today, I'm probably not giving it enough of a chance to carbonate properly since it hasn't poured like the first time. next time I will use .87 oz of fuggles at each addition. It would have been even tastier with the correct amount.
