Personally, if it has much more than 3% alcohol......it's not a mild. Low gravity/low alcohol/low hops=mild.

The mild that I brewed was the clone kit for commercial suicide that AHB put out around this time last year. It was awesome and I plan on brewing it again soon (with a few tweaks of course). Definitely a good recipe to start off with if your wanting a mild.

Pretty Things have just released a pair of Milds based on historic recipes. Funnily enough, both Barclay Perkins beers. The 1945 one is probably what you're looking for.

Do you have a recipe for this one? Or does AHB still have it?

i just brewed a mild. if your into hops, a mild is perfect since it gives you a good change of pace, satisfies a darker beer craving, but is done really quick.

its not my favorite style, but it was soo cheap and quick.

i did orfy's mild with willamette hops instead of fuggles or ekg or whichever he used

Yards in Philadelphia bottles a mild called Brawler... you're not going to find in in Texas unless you can find someone to send one to you.

My last batch was a Mild, which I am currently enjoying. Almost no hop character. Just enough bitterness to balance (most of) the malty sweetness. Easy-drinking, smooth, low carbonation, all around decent beer. Nice change of pace.

It's a tough one, because I have no exact recipe. This was done as a bastardized parti-gyle mild. I made a batch of my molasses porter, and basically after mashing the grains for the porter, I scooped out about 2/3 of the grains after sparging, added 4lb of Canadian 2-row pale malt, and re-mashed. As a result I got some of the colour and roasty-toastiness from the leftover porter grains with a lighter body. I will have to look at my notes when I get home tonight and let you guys know what I did. All I can tell you now is I re-mashed for 1hr at 151F.

Boil was 60 min with 1oz Fuggles at 60, 0.5 oz fuggles at 20 and 0.5 oz fuggles at 5 min.

Cooled to 85F and pitched a moderate starter of S-04 at high krausen. Primary for 4 days, secondary for a week, then primed with 3/4 cup of Demerarra sugar. It was ready to drink abotu a week later and is a very nice little beer.

I'll add some more detailed notes tomorrow.
