Got mine brewed today. 40's and breezy this morning. didn't break 50 today. I think I hit all my numbers OK. Mash temps were kinda hard to take under the circumstances. But all my Gravities and Volumes were dead on. It smelled SOOO good in the mash!

Brewed the second iteration of this yesterday as part of a dual-batch brewday (my first, and hopefully last! Very tiring.). It seems I can never hit all the ingredients as published for a batch, and had to sub some stuff. I didn't want to buy a bag of MO so I used U.S. 2-row. Ran out of black barley and made up the difference with ~.1 lbs chocolate malt (the medium-dark brown stuff). There were a few other oddities but I can't remember right now. Anyway, I was a little concerned about harshness taking off my first runnings. The tun smelled bitter, coffee-esqe and plain unpleasant. Second were better, and end-boil tasted sweet and delicious. I'll try to update, and thanks again for the recipe base! Kyle

I have been looking at this a couple times now, looks like it would be nice for a Chrismas/New Years. Might brew this week.

Making this recipe for the first time. I am kegging a British Mild before mashing. I will have a nice WLP002 British Ale cake ready to go for this brew.

Should I stick with the WYeast or throw it on the WLP002. It seems mouth feel is a pick plus to this beer and don't want to lose it if I use WLP002 yeast cake. I can always save it for an ESB on next brew.

Break down in cost at my LHBS

1335 6.00
Hops 3.00
DME 12.40
Grains 7.20
Total 28.60

Brewing tomorrow, wish I would have had the yeast to cut the cost down, but next time I will.

Brew day went good, with alittle help. My Brix came back at about 11.75? Alittle hot but think it will have the body to cover it up.

Now for the wait.

What would happen if you subbed in chocolate for the pale chocolate? I screwed up my order at the LHBS, and all of the non-base grains are mixed up together, so at this point I'm kinda screwed if it'll really affect the beer. Yooper, any thoughts? What would the final product taste like?

I've used chocolate when I didn't have enough pale chocolate. It's ok, just a little harsher and roastier in the finish. It's not as good as the pale chocolate, which is a more mellow roastiness.

Thanks, Yooper! I'll give it a shot as-is this time and get it right next time.
