I did a slightly modified batch of this yesterday, I had no "different" kinds of Fuggles, so I just modified the recipe to have the right amount of fuggles all of boil and the last 10 mins, and I didn't have time to do a starter, so I used nottingham yeast. I'll update, though w/ what I think of it once its done. Thanks for the recipe!
Fermenting/Kegged/Bottled NONE :( I moved to the NW and haven't had time to setup my brew rig since! (but hey, I'm in the Pacific NW so there's so much awesome beer I don't need to brew it as much hah!

Awesome let me know how it came out! I only used those different ones to use up the old batch before going to the new batch.

i'm sure the nottingham will make it taste great as well!
