Thanks for the recipe Reaper. I did a ten gallon batch and my O.G. was 1.039. After three weeks 5 went into the keg. I could only get it down to 1.018. Im trying to warm up the other five in hopes of a few more points. Still taste great.

Sometimes I have had an FG like you, it is sometime tough to get it down with the mash temp as high as it is. If it doesn't come down any more don't sweat it, perhaps next time drop the mash temp a couple degrees and see how it does. I personally love this when I can hit 1.015. It is a really nice balance there.

Yea i think i might have mashed a little to high. I hit 80% on my efficiency and the brew tasted awesome so it went in the keg. Me and the SWMBO took a sample last night after two days and it was great.

This recipe really opened my eyes to session ales, I have several I brew often now. I like that I can have a few and not be completely shmammered.

A large portion of my mash was spent at 160*, maybe even 161*. How will this change the beer? Prior to this I had only done one 5gal all-grain batch and three 1 gal all-grain batches, and I was used to losing more heat (mashing in my kettle covered with towels). I was doing BIAB if that makes a difference. I also ended up with an OG of 1.042, but I guess it'll just be a little stronger.

With the higher mash temp it will have a bit sweeter finish from a higher final gravity. Not a big deal, more mouthfeel-ish than with a lower mash temp.

Thinking of giving this a third try with some Kent Goldings because I have 3 oz left I want to get used up. Just can't decide on the yeast this time around. Ringwood kind of pissed me off because I had to rouse it for several days straight to get it down to where it should have finished. Might try Irish Ale in it or another London strain.

Brewing this tomorrow! I am using choclate rye malt. Someone said in this thread that a lighter chocolate malt is better in this recipe. That was my choice at the LHBS. Cant remember the lovibond, but I think 190ish?
