This recipe looks interesting to me. I always make a holiday beer and give it away as gifts to my coworkers.
I think this one might be a good one to try. I have some Ringwood yeast about to come out of the conical so I will use that.

I'm going to give this a try. Will likely increase the chocolate malt and omit the actual chocolate. Maybe mash a bit cooler. Will keep everyone apprised of what happens.

are the rice hulls needed if doing BIAB? LBH has American 2 Row Pale Malt 1.2 L, will this work for Pale Malt Maris Otter listed in your recipie. Also LBH has Caramel (Crystal) Malt 80 Lovidbond 1#, is the same as the Crystal Malt 80 you have listed. Sorry for the newby questions, Im still learing the lingo.


Found this on the LBH website Maris Otter - British 2-Row Brewer's Malt - 2 Row British, should I use this instead of the American 2Row Pale Malt?

Do the graham crackers need to convert in the mash?

Are you using specialty grains with your extract? If so i would do a course crush on the graham crackers and include them in your muslin bag.

I'm thinking you should add like half a lb or lb of 6 row in there. I think you'll want the starches to convert in the graham crackers. Could be wrong thi
