First wort hopping is said to give bittering equal to a 20 min addition. Despite being boiled for 60 minutes, the alpha acids are locked in at a certain level. Supposed to give a nice complexity.

Intersting. I tried to do it.

Here is my take on it:

It looks slightly darker than the store bought stuff. It smells pretty good.

Brewed this recipe 2/29 and had a solid brew day, fermented with S-04 for 10 days at about 65*(wort temp) and finished it off at 68* before cold crashing for 4 days.

Anyway, I kegged it this afternoon and had a sample. This is one tastes great right out of the primary, can't wait to give it a week on gas!

Thanks Orfy!!

Had a full pint of this tonight, and I really enjoyed it. It immediately reminds me of the Boddingtons I know, but a little bit bolder. My SWMBO commented on the color of this beer - a very nice amber, almost red. I plan on brewing this again with some other yeasts and see what I like best.

EDITED: Attached a photo of my take on this one, not quite as cloudy as it appears in the photo. Mighty fine brew!

It's early, but I tried one of mine last night. It isn't ready yet, but I taste potential in there.

Drinking one of the last pints in the keg and this one really came together after about a month on gas.

Just wanted to chime in again on this brew. I think this is the perfect beer to go all grain. Its simple yet has a great malty taste. I've brewed this almost exclusively for almost the last few years. You can make it as simple as adding Northern at 60 min and throwing in Goldings at 15 min to doing a wort hop and a 60 min finishing steep. All of it is great! This is my go to brew. It has really helped me to be able to taste differences in brewing techniques.
