Is Caramel 60 different than Crystal 60?..

A post not long ago described them as sifferent malting/crystallization procedures but as far as I know the malsters usually interchange the names between the two without rwally listing amy sidferwnces. But for our purposes they should.be the. Same for us.

Phone post.

Wow I can't believe I've never brewed Orfy's or your version of his Mild recipe. Thanks very much for posting, and thanks for the extra info about 2-row+victory vs marris otter, that is very helpful.

5 lb 8 oz Maris Otter (Crisp, UK)
1 lb 8 oz Crystal 60L (Crisp, UK)
6 oz Chocolate malt (Crisp, UK)

1 oz UK Fuggle 4.30% at 45 minutes
1 oz UK Fuggle 4.30% at 15 minutes

Brewhouse efficiency for this recipe is set to 75%

Mash at 158 degrees for 60 minutes at 1.25:1 ratio, mashout with 1 gallon of boiling water and Vorlauf till first runnings are clear. Double batch sparge with 170 degree water to get to pre-boil volume.

Pitch yeast at the starting fermentation temp of 65 degrees and ramp up to 68 degrees after 3 days at initial fermentation temp.

After 10 days of primary fermentation rack to a keg or bottling bucket and carb to 1.8 volumes.

A few notes about this beer:

If you have never tried a Northern English Mild, you are missing out on a great full flavored session beer that is both an inexpensive beer to brew and it is a quick beer to go from grain to glass, it can be ready to drink in a couple weeks if you push it.

I always have a great time brewing this beer, if I don't have Maris Otter, I use 4.5 lbs of 2-row and a pound of victory malt to approximate the MO, don't have victory? Just toast a pound of your 2-row at 350 degrees for 16 minutes and let it sit in a bag for a week prior to brewing. It also lends itself well to other English hops, and if Notty is not your thing, use S-04 or WLP002.

As requested be included in the recipe, the yeast that was used for my competition beer was a long forgotten packet of Nottingham yeast that had an expiration date of March 2006, it would appear it made a fine beer after all that time!
Going to try this one this weekend

I am going to be brewing this one real soon, probably going to be a double brewday, going to brew my Bitter Brit ordinary bitter at the same time.

As long as you keep your temps in check you should have a nice full flavored session ale.

I enjoy drinking this one on the weekends when working around the house, or anytime I need to still function after having a couple beers.
