I recently got a stout faucet. The first ale I brewed for it was from the Pale Ale book by Terry Foster. I believe it was a special bitters. OSG about 1.043 and FSG 1.007 as I recall. Anyway on nitrogen, it reminds me of the currently available Boddingtons if that is what you are aiming for. Like a recent poster, I also used some of my homegrown Willamette hops along with the Goldings as I recall.

Did you get a chance to brew this yet? I'm debating between brewing this or Orfy's Mild for a quick turnaround.

Not yet. I was thinking about it tonight on the way home.

I need to get this going though.

I have a friend from the motorcycle interwebs who lives in Ireland coming through town in about eight weeks and No. 2 child's graduation party right after that.

Heading to pickup ingredients to brew this one now. I've got S-04 & Notty in the fridge...will likely use dry for ease. Which has been preferred for this recipe?

I hope you meant KEG...Kent East Goldings
There is another website out there that I think is Orfy's. It uses the phrase: Goldings, East Kent.

7.25 lb Pale Malt, Maris Otter
.55 lb Cara-Pils/Dextrine
.264 lb Crystal Malt 60L
1 oz Chocolate Malt

Hopping schedule:
1oz Northern Brewer, First Wort Hops
1oz EKG (45 minutes)
1oz EKG (0 minutes AKA flameout)

Feel free to round off at your convenience .

Any advice out there on which malt extract to use to replace the Maris Otter?
I think I screwed up at the LHBS. I only got 1 ounce of chocolate malt. I have some spare around here.

I'm using:
7-3/4lb Maris Otter
1/2lb Carapils
1/4lb Crystal Malt
1-oz chocolate malt

First Wort Hops. The adding the hops to the first wort, is that supposed to save time in boiling? Could someone shed a little light on that for me please? Should I start the first wort boiling and then add the sparge water to it as I pull it?

I usually wait till I get three pots full and start boiling. I can keep track of my hopping easier this way.

I mix them at the end when I put the wort into the fermentors. I aerate it during the mixing also.

Thanks in advance for any help.
Bill

Don't quote me on this but I thought the FWH procedure was basically to through the hops in the boil kettle before anything else goes in there and then drain your runnings ontop of them and basically procede as normal from there. again don't quote me
