Default Recipe

Recipe isn't too crazy at all and it's super easy.
It's just a LME and DME with specialty grains.
I actually kind of copied a kit from nothernbrewer.

.5 lb Simpson's Dark Crystal
.5 lb Simpson's Roasted Barley
.5 lb Simpson's Black Malt

3.3lbs GOLD malt syrup
3 lbs. Dark DRY malt extract

1 oz. Northern Brewer hops 60 mins boil
6 oz. bakers dark chocolate 5 mins boil
1 oz. Willamette hops 1 minute boil
1 oz. Fuggles (dry hopping)

Wyeast #1028 London Ale Yeast

4 oz Cherry extract at bottling.


Any more questions just ask.

Default flavors

I would say the chocolate is more pronounced than the cherry. You get an immediate taste of the sweetness of chocolate at the beginning and the final taste is a bit of a sour cherry. The kit I juiced up came with 4 oz of cherry extract flavoring, but I think about 6 oz will be used the next time I make it personally. Both flavors are there, but the cherry is a bit weak.
