Just mixed up my yeast starter for my Boddingtons Pub Ale clone from AHS. I'm stoked as this is one of my all time favorite beers. My buddy the liquor store owner stopped carrying it so this is my way of getting back my beer. It's going to be tough waiting for this one to condition

All time favorite beer and your buddy stopped carrying it? You sure he's your buddy?

I KNOW! He stopped carrying Dogfish Head as well but that was out of his control. This is why I brew my own.

All joking aside, don't worry about the "nitro", just shoot for a low carbonation level. Nitro is used to mimic that in serving situations that cannot use a handpump, and so therefore cannot truly serve "real" ale-like carb levels.

There was never any nitro in it when I used to drink it in pubs in the 80s in the Midlands.

The nitro makes a nice creamy head, but was not traditionally in the beer.

Thanks...cans with the nitro "widget" is the only way I've had it. Thanks also for the low carb advice, would not have known otherwise.

Would love to have it fresh like that....

If you want a nice thick head on it, go with one of the creamer faucets (Perlick 575)... Otherwise, carb it up (sugar or gas) and enjoy it.

I made a Boddington clone a while back. Used a recipe I found online. A brew-buddy of mine did a side-by-side comparison of mine and the original. While the original had a better head on it, and was lighter in color, mine won in flavor and carbonation (it had what felt like the right level of carbonation)... I might brew it again, once I have some 575 faucets installed...
