Just brewed this bad boy. Ended up using Wyeast English Ale II instead of Nottingham. Had pretty awful efficiency (~60%), but it attenuated out nice and dry (1.008), so it still came in around 5.2% ABV.

Primaried it for 3 weeks, and it's been in the keg for 1 week so far (still could use a little longer, but already very quaffable!). Mine's a bit cloudier than yours.

I don't see this one lasting very long.

A week later, this cleared nicely. It's not cloudy at all. And damn is it good. This is possibly the best beer I've brewed (out of the 10-12 I've done so far (2nd all-grain))

I did a Partial Mash version of this (with a few tweaks) and it is definitely the best beer I've made, out of eight total batches. Thanks!

Heres what I tweaked
Mashed at 140-158... for 60 mins
4 lb. Organic American 2-row
1 lb. American Munich
8 oz. American crystal 120L
4 oz. Belgian CaraMunich
2 oz. Belgian Special B
1.5 lb. Flaked rye
1 lb. Rye malt
1 oz. of Organic Roasted Barley(as suggested to add some more color)

Then added 3lbs. of Amber DME to the boil. Which I guess makes it a Amber Rye ale now...

Didn't have any Columbus Hops at the LHBS so I got Zeus hops (never brewed with it before) Used 1 1/2 oz in steps then a 1/2 oz. of Cascade at the last min.
Ended up with an O.G of 159-160...and pitched the bottom dwelling yeast from the primary of a beer I brewed last week and just racked. It was White Labs British yeast WLP 005...Started bubbling within an hour or two...Sweet first time I've reused yeast.

I'll post in about a month on the turn out. Should be interesting.
Looking for feedback on this recipe......anything?

Does flaked rye help head retention? Or is adding a bit of carapils necessary?

All rye or wheat aids in head retention.
