No need for the Carapils, that is already in the extract. The late hop addition should be
little to none. I wouldn't add more than 0.2 oz at 10 mins for a 4 gal batch. American ale
yeast (S05?) will w...

It's still only 5% of the grist. My educated guess is that the worst case scenario a touch of

degree range. I recommend Wyeast 1469, West Yorkshire Ale for English milds and bitters. I love

You never know when the proverbial "bad bottle" is the one that gets submitted to a
competition. When bottling homebrew it is impossible to guarantee the priming sugar is evenly
distributed. The beer ...
