I know... Shocking, isn't it?

Anyways, please post your results from the first tasting. Looking forward to it

trying to decide which yeast to use. WLP 002 English Ale or WLP 039 Nottingham. any experience with either of these?

I have used both with very good results, the Nottingham is called for in the recipe, but the 002 is quite delicious as well

awesome. thanks. I got the 039 which is labeled the East Midlands Ale, but I've read that it is the liquid version of Nottingham.

well. it was a fairly successful brew. Had to stop my second batch sparge short because it went below 1.008, so I topped up the kettle to get my volume. Ended up with a OG of 1.032. can't wait for it to be in the keg.

azscoob, thanks for the recipe and inspiring me to brew something other than pale ales and ipa's. I just got my grains in and plan on brewing this tomorrow. I ordered EKG and willamette instead of fuggles. Which one should I use for bittering?

I personally would use the wilamette for your 45 minute bittering addition and the EKG for flavor/aroma addition, this is simply because I love the flavor of EKG hops later in the boil, one of my favorite hops!

Thanks for the recipe and tips. I brewed this a 3.5 weeks ago with ingredients I had left over from various other batches throughout the year. I ended up toasting some pils malt in my oven as well. It's been carbonating in bottle for 10 days and I sampled one last night. Pretty awesome for such a young beer... Again thanks for the great recipe!
