Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: Wyeast 1728   
Yeast Starter: No   
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: Yes if making a full 5 gallon batch   
Batch Size (Gallons): 2.5   
Original Gravity: 1.048   
Final Gravity: 1.018   
IBU: 16   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 13   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 days at 62*   
Tasting Notes: Balanced beer leans towards the malty side. Dry finish keeps you coming back for more   

This Beer just finished 2nd Best of Show at the Delaware State Fair's Battle of the Brews Competition on July 23, 2011, with a score of 39. It is my first beer to place at a competition and I am very excited for that! Recipe is based off of Jamil's from Brewing Classic Styles.

2.5 Gallon Recipe ~80% Efficiency
--------------------------------
Grain
Maris Otter - 3 lbs 8 oz
Crystal 40L - 6 oz
Munich (10L) - 3 oz
Honey Malt - 3 oz
Crystal 120L - 2 oz
Pale Chocolate (~200L) - 1 oz

Hops
Kent Goldings 5% AA 1/2 oz for 60 minutes

Yeast
1 pack of Wyeast 1728. If doing a larger batch, make an appropriate starter.

Single Infusion Mash at 158* degrees for 60 minutes. I had a fairly thin mash for this recipe about 1.8 qt/lb. Single hop addition at the beginning of the 60 minute boil. To make a full batch I would go ahead double all the grain and hops. Let me know if you have any questions!

You should post your IPA recipe. I'd like to see what it's all about. I missed entry by hours so could not enter my Saison

I've been wanting to brew a wee heavy and I think I'll use your recipe as a starting point. It looks tasty!

Used this same grain bill, but a different hop schedule for an "American Session Ale" and it turned out great!
