This was deemed "not cloned."

All recipes are (unless otherwise specified): 6 gallons post-boil, 70% efficiency, Morey for color, 15% evaporation, 7.27 gallons preboil, Rager IBU, and most hops are in grams not ounces. Most, if not all recipes are primary only (no secondary).

If you brew this, please reply with your results for discussion.

OG 1060
SRM 10.4
34.7 IBU

90 minute boil

5.83kg Marris Otter
310g British Crystal Malt*

19g Target 11%AA at 60min
15g Challenger 7.5%AA at 3min
15g Northdown 8.5%AA at 3min
3g Goldings 4.75%AA at 3min
21g Goldings dry hop

WLP002

Water is burtonized with gypsum.

The fermentation schedule given by the brewer was quite convoluted, but Jamil recommended to ferment at 17C, raise to 20C over the course of fermentation.

Mash at 148F for 60min

*Jamil clarified that he recommended Simpson's British Dark Crystal which is available from Northern Brewer.

Discussion notes:
Recommended changes include: use a no sparge mash, use the Simpson's Dark Crystal, and ferment at 17C to 20C.

...but there seems to be too litle bittering hop. If you want to reach the IBU you need 35,3g of target (according to Brew Smith).

In the rebrew (wich was deemed: Cloned) they only refer to the "original recipe". So I will re-listen the first show to figure it out.

I get 33.3 IBU when I plugged it into beersmith. Are you using the parameters listed at the beginning of the recipe?

I thought so - but if you can get the numbers right, and I can't, it seems I haven't.
I'm not able to attach my recipe, but if you would mail me yours I'd be gratefull.

It helped, but I'm still about 10 IBU's short of your 33,3.

I would use the recipe that is listed above and not worry about the numbers.

For the successful rebrew, Chad used a partigyle brew of 12 gallons of the above recipe and used the first runnings for the ESB. He ran off 5.5 gallons, diluted to the appropriate amount to get the correct SG to get 6 gallons at a 1060 OG. He did not change the hop schedule. He used the second runnings for London Pride.

That above recipe isn't the recipe he used to brew the first beer. Where did you get it?

The recipe that he brewed first had none of those hops and included 005 instead of 002 yeast. The 2nd try he stayed to the recipe that was given to him by the Fullers brewer. I don't know if they ever went over the recipe of the 2nd try.

I found the recipe, it was stated in the first show. He just didn't follow that recipe in the first try.
