Target & EKG for a one ounce fry hop could be a nice twist. I think it was Fullers' Bengal Lancer that uses Target for dry hop. Works well enough!

I used just over half honey and a lot of the malt was there for body. It had the body of a 4% abv beer, roughly and a light brown colour. The finish is very dry, winelike, so I find that a fairly low...

I'd go for Winter Warmer, which is just a strong mild. I've seen milds from 2% to 12% abv, but people just call them different things. Hard to tell apart a pale stout from a double mild anyway. Just...

I made something similar with pale malt, special b and crystal. Kept the IBUs under 10. Very good, ages nicely, plus came around 7%abv.

10% invert sugar, just replace some malt. Works well in milds too (it's quite typical).

I use MO all the time (I live in the UK), but I do usually mix it 50/50 with pilsner or lager malt for pales. For barley wine I tend to add more invert sugar and avoid too much malt. You could...

I would have kept the mix of base malts and dropped the crystal and carafa. The 20m addition will make a difference, keep it.

Brew your base high ibu beer separate from your young lacto beer and blend them when you vat / age. That keeps the sour flavours and then the young ale finishes fermenting in vat/secondary/whatever....

Golden syrup is meant to be a mix of pale invert with sucrose. When I've used it it has left a lollipop flavour that I don't get from plain sugar, but it does die down after a few months.

I think you're spot on with williamette, styrians and nugget. Dry hop with styrians too. I'd consider a 30m addition of nugget. To be fair, I think I brewed exactly that in an IPA that I let sit in...

Try aging some of the batch with Brett to get stock ale. Even Brett and lacto for strong dry sherry and sour notes would be true to old British style.

I have slightly mixed feelings about golden syrup. It leaves some lollipop sort of flavours that take a while to die down. It's sort of close to #1, thought.

Invert sugar does not only contribute alcohol. Although it dries the finish you also get honey and pear notes from invert #2 and dark fruit and raisin notes from inverts #3 & #4.

I guess IBU for this one has dropped over the centuries. From the bottle I had I'd expect 45-50 IBU with very little late additions relative to the early ones. Don't they mention Challenger and...

I had White Shield last month. Hoppy and caramelly at the same time. The #2 invert might give it some colour and honey. Fairly refreshing but a tad heavy somehow. Lovely aroma.

Yeah, you're meant to use unrefined cane sugar to get some of the impurities into the invert. I'd add it towards the end of the boil. I often consider candi sugar syrup as a substitute as the main...

Sounds good, but I wouldn't home roast as it's more like amber malt than crystal and you might as well get some amber. You could cook the invert for 40m while you mash to get invert #2 which would...
