Default Historic Recipe: Mild Ale c. 1909

Found this recipe while thumbing through the Classic Beer Style Guide for Mild Ale; this ain't no mild that we know at 1.060 and nearly 60 IBUs! I'm redacting it down to an 'experimental' volume of 3 gallons into the fermenter.

Interesting to see how the style evolved into the modern dark mild.

Caveat: I made minor substitutions from the recipe found in the book referenced above, swapping Challenger for the 2 oz of Goldings specified to keep hop vegetal matter to a minimum and Aromatic to approximate Amber Malt.

I've got about 10 minutes left for the saccharification rest.

I actually made the recipe from the book, it's very tasty. But definitely don't tip it back like Orfy's Mild.

I'm on target so far, but if I overshoot, it'll be boiloff that does it. Using a different kettle from my usual so the rate is a little wonky.

Oh well.

Finished at 1.060, 82.3% efficiency with 2.8 gallons into the fermenter.

Did they have aromatic malt back then? And did the recipe use galena hops a few hours ago or did I imagine that?

Dunno, had to exercise a smidge of creative license to approximate the amber malt.

It did briefly, but I wanted to use a classic English hop in a higher AA%.
