I just kegged this and put a little sample into a bottle with the carbonator. And wow! This is the one of the best milds I've ever had. In addition, this brew came out to around 2.75% ABV! I am so damn impressed by this beer. Great job on the recipe!

OG 1.034
FG 1.013

ABV 2.75%

Just want to say this is a great recipe and was my first all grain. I've done 3 batches now and this will remain a staple in my brew lineup.

Glad you like it! My first all grain recipe is still on my regular brew schedule, it's been years since I first brewed it, I have tweaked it a little but nothing major.

That's what makes this hobby so much fun, finding a great beer and fine tuning it to your preferences.

I'm gonna brew this up soon, and pardon me as I have not read the whole thread, but has anyone tried this with golden promise in lieu of maris otter? I have some golden promise on hand, no MO. Thoughts?

Also, how about subbing EKGs for the Fuggles?

EKG is what I used. Worked out great. Also, many others on this thread used EKG with good results.

Golden Promise is a little bit lighter and less malty than the MO. It should be OK and I'd suggest you go for it, but it's possible that it might make the beer a tad thin for some's tastes.

You could always toast some of the grain (as the OP mentioned). Sounds tasty to me!

Thanks for the response. I have always heard that Golden Promise is basically a "superior Maris Otter". I thought that implied maltier, is that not the case?

Maybe, just note that I've never used it before.

I looked at this link:

http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/brewing/brewing-ingredients/grain-malts/base-malts/british-golden-promise.html

Which shows golden promise to be 2L, Whereas the Marris Otter I've used is 3.5-4.5 L.

This to me just implies a maltier/nuttier character in the marris otter.

I think others who've actually used it vs. Marris Otter could give you better opinions. I'm just comparing what I read on paper.

Default Stalled fermentation


I was looking forward to kegging this today but my batch has stalled at 1.020 with initial gravity of 1.039. Any suggestions to try as this is only my 4th batch of homebrew? Thanks.

Start by some gentle agitation, raise the temps maybe? Repitching would be next, lastly amylase enzyme.... But the AE would be a last resort...
