Orfy, you are killing me. Had a Directors Bitter with dinner last night. So smooth and easy to drink. After reading your recipe I want another. Might have to go to the pub for lunch. So many beers...so little time.

Well I have a pint of my boddies as we speak.
I've just cooked a Korma with a little bite.

My mouth has that curry buzz from tasting and the Boddington's is a perfect partner for a party in my mouth.

Orfy, you now owe me a new keyboard, as it is soaked in drool.
What is the taste rating you mention?

Just beersmith.

50 - Hobgoblin and other stuff that in my opinion is perfect for my taste.
40 - One mighty fine brew and is on my brew again list
30 - fine nothing wrong but maybe not enough body or taste or not quite my thing .
20 - not sure won't drink if there is anything else. (Sort of BMC level)
10 - pooh, don't like. Probably won't finish the pint.
00 - Liquid pooh and smells like it.

This is really good. It's a go.
This is now on my must brew again list.

It's Light in colour but not taste. Plenty of body , It's got good head retention and gives "History" and 4% ABV I can have more than 1 or 2 at a time.

In short. I recommend it.

always feel rude when i suggest this, but i wish the US would move on with the rest of the world and go metric. Base 10 just makes good modern sense.

Orfy, I'm a little confused by the hop schedule. I understand:

25g Northern Brewer as FWH
25g EKG at 45 min (15 minutes into the 60 min boil)

but what is this?:
Quote:
Steep for 60 min Steep 25.00 gm Goldings, East Kent [4.00%] (60 min) (Aroma Hop-Steep)
Does that mean add 25g EKG at flameout, and hold for 60 minutes before chilling?
