Yes, probably. You could skip or cut down on the aroma-steep hop addition to avoid some of the hop flavors. That way all you have are bittering hops.

I just made this recipe yesterday with a couple of modifications. For the recipe as written Beersmith puts the IBUs at 34.7 and the IBU/SG ratio at .87, which is more bitter than I usually like. I reduced the FWH Northern Brewer to .5oz instead of .75oz. That was actually more convenient because my Northern Brewer hops are in .5oz plugs anyway. The result is 26.7 IBUs and a ratio of .67, right about where I like it. I used Wyeast 1318 (London Ale III), which is supposedly the Boddingtons strain. It's chugging away in the fermenter, so I'll let you know how it turns out in about 10 days.

so, could someone verify the yeast once and for all? I've heard S-04, Notty, and Wyeast 1318 London ale III. Orfy, you used Notty for yours, eh?

Awesome recipe, Orfy!

Brewed this last Sat night. Overshot the OG a little (1.043) due to 86% efficiency. Pitched on a cake of S-04. In 19 hours it was down to 1.016. Just checked it again (6 days) and it's at 1.012. The hydrometer sample made me want to start pulling pints. This is going in the keg tonight, and will likely be gone very soon. Gotta figure a way to make 10 gallons next time...

Trying this tonight and working with dry yeasts. Can anyone recommend Windsor vs. Nottingham vs. S-04 for this? Have a few others too, just these are the ones that keep coming up on searches for bitters.

EDIT: Just went with Nottingham. That way I can pitch my next recipe on the cake.
