Does that mean add 25g EKG at flameout, and hold for 60 minutes before chilling?
Yes it is confusing. (Beer Smith)

It's flame out. Aroma hops.....chill immediately.

I doubt the US will change during my lifetime. Technically we are on metric. Our Interstate highway system was spec'd in metric back in the 1950's. In the 1970's there was a push and again in 1980. The majority of our companies that do business outside the USA build in metric. [Check out your car, only the lug nuts are Standard] Unfortunately, most politicians are lawyers and they can't deal with numbers that don't start with a $.

Pretty much anything based in science and technology these days is worked with in metric. English units are reserved for more mundane tasks, like body height, cake pans, and floorplans. Being one of those scientific types myself, it sure would be easier if everything was in one standard unit, and I have to admit the metric system is hella easier to work with.

I think it's just a matter of time. The current youth are comfortable with working in metric from their jr high and high school science classes, never mind any higher education. Eventually politicians will figure out that dual systems are costing us millions to billions a year, and the standard will change. NASA Mars Poler lander, anyone?

Anyway, I'm looking at brewing a partial mash version of this, and since I did the math anyway, here's the recipe in "English" units :


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?

Brewed it on New Year's Eve just kegged it to Keg condition it for a Super Bowl party.

Wow love it, right now ready to go.

Not sure how I'll keep my grubby little paws off it for three weeks.

Anyone have any luck doing this as a partial mash/extract brew? I am still not to all grain, but I have been searching for a good English bitter.

I would just replace MO with 6 lbs. llight DME for extract version. Steep all other grains as the same weight. Same hop schedule. FWIW, I just replace the base of any AG with 6 lbs DME . Unless the specialty grains must be mashed, keep them the same -- hops, too. If you are looking for a more in-depth recipe, time for AG!

Hehehe, this beer is long gone, I'm afraid. I kicked this keg shockingly fast, everybody liked it! This was my last PM, though. I've been AG for several months now.

I'm actually looking to make this again today!

Nah, we're gonna wait until the rest of the world comes back around to our system. We're number one, after all. (Or is China number one now?!?)

I can remember elementary school teachers telling my class that the USA was gradually shifting to the metric system, and that by the time we were adults the conversion would be complete. Some 30+ years later, virtually no progress has been made. At least our money is metric! It's also rapidly shrinking in value...

At least in the engineering/sciences fields nearly everything is metric...Or at least computed in metric and then converted to 'English' for everyone else .
