Nottingham does ferment out very well, so it does add to the alcohol. I usually hit around 5.9% since I mill my own grain. No complaints on the ABV here too.
this batch, I had a SG of 1.058 at 5.5 gal, and an FG of 1.009. Beer smith shows me at 6.39%

like I said not a problem, Just trying to figure out what the culprit might be..
So I can adjust accordingly next time..

Everyone that tried the 7% version liked the taste but couldn't drink more than 2 or 3 and not get nailed Including me...

I think the latest version might be a little more user friendly...

I just kegged this today after 15 days in the primary.
It was already very clear, clearer than any other beer I have made at this point in its lifetime.
My OG was 1.052 and the FG was 1.011, and wow did it taste great
Two weeks (if I can wait that long) in the keg carbing / conditioning and this bad boy should be ready to go

This is one of the best Pale Ales I've ever had. This really does benefit from aging, it gets better by the day.


This was brewed on 11/02, and the pic doesn't show how clear this really is, I can see the fingerprints on the opposite side of the glass.

well here it is, first AG beer and first glass. Mine looks a bit lighter than the one post above mine. Still could use some more aging though.

Just picked up the ingredients for this and psyched to brew it tomorrow. However, I changed from Crystal 10L to 60L since I did not want my brew to look like piss (too light). I usually do not stray if I do a clone, but I don't like yellow beer. See how this one turns out. Chinook was the deal sealer.

I tasted my 2 week old batch today and it tasted great for green beer. I am very excited to try it again in 2 more weeks! The only difference is that I used Munich malt instead of Vienna because my local shop was out.

Aging does do a lot I have a keg on tap right now that is 4 months old and it is quite tasty course I would think it's probably on the tail end of it's prime. Two months is probably the sweet spot for tastiness. I always make a 10 gal batch of Ed's Pale ale and with all of the other beers I have on tap I don't seem to go through this one as fast as I used to. I will say this beer goes well in a black and tan I'm looking forward to having my Guinness clone kegged in another couple of months, just in time for St. Patty's day.

I am making this right now and am in the middle of the mash. It, the mash, seems real thick, I doughed-in with 17 quarts. I am using a Coleman Extreme 70 Quart cooler. Could the size of the cooler be playing a role in this?
