This is the official collaborative recipe created in this thread: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/too-...1-11-a-180867/ The discussion about the recipe can be found here: official-11-11-11-old-ale-thread-hbt-anniversary-series Because there will be many variables from brewer to brewer, this will make for an awesome swap come next year. When brett is involved there are a lot of unknowns, so the final gravity is a bit of a shot in the dark. Another variable is the oaking. Some may wish to leave it out entirely. Also, the length of oaking, quantity, toast level, and whether it is French or American will all produce very different results. The key here is balance.

The recipe has been posted at Brewmasters Warehouse here.

Partial mash complicates the caramelization, but I think it could still be done. Maybe only caramelize like 3/4 of a gallon to a few cups, since there would be no full boil and it is already more concentrated.

What do you think? This will still get your OG to 1.078 assuming 77% efficiency from the mash.

Fermentables for Partial Mash
UK Pale Ale Malt 2lb 0oz (16.7 %) In Mash/Steeped
UK Amber Malt 12.00 oz (6.3 %) In Mash/Steeped
UK Brown Malt 12.00 oz (6.3 %) In Mash/Steeped
Extract - Light Dried Malt Extract 8lb 8oz (70.8 %) Start Of Boil
Sugar - Treacle 8.00 oz (3.0 %) Start Of Boil

Once someone with more experience with partials confirms this I can update the original recipe.

If you can't find Treacle easily, would it be acceptable to swap in an equal amount of molasses, or should it really be treacle?

Ditto: If you can't get US Target would using German Target to the same IBUs work just as well, or are we talking an actual difference in flavor?

I'm going to stick my neck out a bit and say most dark molasses (dark or blackstrap) ought to work as a 1:1 sub for the treacle. It should be close enough, anyway.

Hop character will not show through much on this recipe, so hop substitutions should be fine (though I'd still stick with British varieties). I'm using Phoenix, because it's what I have an ample supply of.

Agreed. The reason the recipe was put together with treacle and target was to give a nod to old English ales. I probably won't use target, but will probably spring for the treacle.

How much oak would be appropriate for this beer. I did a peaty BW over the summer and did 1.5ozof stavin cubes. I was thinking of doing this beer and upping the oak to 2 or a hair more since it'll be fairly malty.

Also question, are you making the amber and brown malt on your own?

I plan on adding 2oz of French oak cubes for the entire primary fermentation (1 month). When I transfer to the secondary, I'll sample it to see if I should add more. I'm guessing that I probably won't do a secondary oak addition but if I did it'd be less than a half ounce. I don't want it to taste like a tree.

My LHBS carries both brown and amber malts so I'll just buy from them.
