I have heard that the aroma/flavor has less to do with the aa co tent and more related to oils and several other compounds - leading some to recommend that you don't correct late additions for alpha. I'd be surprised if you couldnt notice the difference in a side by side with and without the 15 min addition.

To OP:

In your experience brewing this recipe, is there a difference between the MO and 2-Row/Victory versions? All things being equal, the 2-Row version will be cheaper. If there is a quality difference, I'd rather spring for the MO.

Thanks!

While the MO is quite awesome and won me the gold, I honestly prefer home toasting some 2-row to make my own victory, and adding that with 2-row for this recipe.

The flavors are fresh and malty, almost nutty.

I think I listed my process for home toasting is in the first few posts of this thread, give it a try, your house will smell fantastic while toasting the malt....malty, peanut buttery... Amazing. You won't be disappointed, and if you are like me you will start subbing home toasted and 2-row for all your recipes calling for MO.

I just bottled my batch. I brewed on 12/24 and bottled today (1/12). I was a little surprised to see the final gravity at 1.024. My og was 1.049. I fermented in my closet ( no temp control) which ranged from 60-70 degrees. Could this have made the difference in the attenuation?


The beer tasted good straight out of the fermenter. I can't wait to see how it turns out when carbonated. I used 8 oz of chocolate malt and 1oz willamette and 1oz EKG.

I think you convinced me to try toasting.

Let me verify: you take 1lb of the total base malt (2-row) and toast it, then (after a week) add it back into the rest of the (2-row) grist for crushing.

Sound right?

About to keg this. I have another 50ish lb of Maris Otter I have to go through before I'll likely do this.

Anyways, I know that I'm going to be making an English Mild one of my regulars. Hope this turns out as good as I'm looking for.
