I think I can make a final report on my first batch of this beer. In short, I like it.

Brewed on April Fool's. Malted a bit low, probably closer to 154F than 158F, everything else per recipe.

Nottingham fermented out well, did a hydrometer test at 10 days and it wasn't at FG, tested at 14 days and it was 1.009, right on the money.

Bottled at 14 days (4/15), kept at 70F for two weeks, stored in basement on 4/29 @62F.

Sampled after 1 week in basement (5/6) and it was drinkable, but clearly could be better. After three weeks in basement (5/20), it was quite enjoyable, and I think that now (6/2) it is probably at its peak.

Would I make it again? Yes. Recommend to others....well, it depends on what I know of their taste in beer.

Well, I'm at week 3 in the keg and it's very good. Finish seems a slight bit dry to me but might be mistaking some roastiness. Tastes better than 2 weeks in the keg though, hoping 4 weeks makes it ideal. I would say it's exactly what is advertised though in terms of style. If I make it again, I may drop the Notty and try another ale yeast in it's place. That might clean up that finish a little as well.

Yeah, I found I had an amazing transformation from week 3 to week 4 with this recipe. The roastiness softened to a beautiful malty chocolate.

That was my results/perception anyway.

I have brewed this several times now using a Fullers strain with great results. I ferment at 62°F for a nice clean finish or a couple of degrees more if I want to mix it up a bit.

+1 to this approach. I fermented at 66 and it was a little too high for my tastes. Next time for this recipe, I'll be shooting for lower 60's.

I'm glad to see this recipe is still being brewed. and developed.
For those interesed there is a book being published later this year that includes this recipe (and a couple of others)
I'm sure the Author will share the details on here at the time of publishing.

Third batch of this turned out great. That's 45 gallons so far!

Default Success!


I just cracked open the first bottles of this, brewed about 6 weeks ago (a little longer in the fermentor than planned, but oh well). My first all-grain batch. I am thrilled - it came out great. Thanks for the great recipe!

I was/am a little concerned because the very first bottle was way over carbonated, and seemed to have a larger-than-normal layer of yeast in the bottom. But the next 2 were fine, carbonation right where I expected. I'm a little puzzled with this.

Anyway, I couldn't be happier with the Mild. Thanks again!

Drinking from the primary at 7 days old and better than the six month old Budweiser I had last night that had lost a little carbonation. Gonna leave in primary for 5-7 more days before bottling

Just a little bit of news on this recipe.

It's been published in a book released this week.



I've yet to read the book but Homebrewtalk gets a mention.

The Author is a member of the board. I'm sure he'll share the details.

I hope to brew the recipe early next year at a commercial brewery. If it happens it should appear at a few local real ale pubs.
