Just got done brewing this recipe. I ended up with 5.15 gallons @ 79.5% eff., 1.070 SG (I used 2 pounds of honey). The color is f'n awesome and smells great. I made a slight change and used 5lbs Marris Otter & 3lbs 2row.

I was looking for a brew to use up some leftover ingredients, as luck would have it this is the first recipe I looked at and I saw I've got pretty much everything to do a 1 Gallon batch with some minor substitutions (both my 3 Gal carboys are in use).

Malt:

1# 6 oz Organic 2-row
3.5 oz pilsner (to top off base grain since it was short)
3.2 oz Caraaroma
1.8 oz Carafoam
2 oz Munich (sub for melanoiden)

Hops:

0.325 oz German Hallertauer 5.4% AA FWH (used slightly more to use up my hop)
0.2 oz Cascade @ 30 min 5.3% AA
1/4 teaspoon Irish moss @ 15 min
3.3 oz honey @ Flameout

Yeast:

WL 004 Irish Ale made starter from washed batch and pitched @ high krausen.

It is fermenting like mad today!

O.G was 1.07, beer calc gave me 1.064 but the variable could be in the honey as there is no standard concentration, mine is from a farmer not the grocery store. I use the BIAB technique exclusively now (love it!) and used 1.5 Gal water to mash, boiled off perfectly, topped up with 400ml starter and had enough for an 8 oz cup of hot scotchie (wort post boil with shot of scotch added, very tasty!) Mash temp was low to start 144 F, heated up to 157 F, cooled and maintained 152-154 F.

I just brewed this again. My new brew store here in Durham didn't have Crystal hops so I ended up going with Challenger at 50 minutes. hopefully the results are appropriate. I loved this one last time. Thanks again for a great recipe.

I brewed this for the 2nd time last month and I had to do the same with Challenger hops for Crystal and it turned out great.

Brewed this today. LHBS didn't have caraaroma or carafoam so used cara-pils and dark crystal malt instead. Smell was awesome . OG 1.06. Can't wait to drink.

carafoam is also called cara-pils.. dark crystal works as a decent sub for caraaroma if your LHBS doesn't carry it. If you make it again, brewmasterswarehouse.com carries caraaroma.

I hate to order things online since the LHBS is so convenient for me. Is there a better substitute for caraaroma?

really... no there isnt. the only thing that is close is crystal 120-130. Even that will miss the aroma part. I guess you could use crystal 120 subtract .25lb and replace that with .25lb aromatic malt. that could get more malt aroma.
