I'm going to try a 5 gal partial mash version of this - hopefully this weekend.

I'm using 5 lbs MO for the base + 3 lbs of LME

I've got Crystal 15 so I'm planning to add a few oz of C40 too for color.

I'll let you know how it turns out in 6-8 weeks

Mine has been bottled about 3 weeks now - pretty good so far, a bit of residual sweetness is present. I've also got a hint of something, maybe astringency? Or it could be that it needs a bit more time to condition in the bottle. I carbed it to about two volumes of CO2 in the bottle, so maybe that's part of it - I know on cask the bitters are fairly low in carbonation.

I guess this is posted for anyone who has experience:

I was going to split these ingredients in half and use a mixture of northern brew and EKG for hops. If I had half of each which would you used 1st? Also I will probably use Safale English Ale Yeast. I also wanted to point out that my LHBS only has Caramel to use as crystal. I believe that makes it is Breiss product. Is this an even swap?

Do you think This recipe will work out?
