Hey All,

Was planning on trying my hand at an English Mild and wanted a little input about my recipe.

Ill try to hit all the important points.

5 gallon

LME 4.4#
Chocolate 0.33#
C 60 1.25#

Fuggles(whole) .5 oz 6% AA @ 60 mins
Fuggles(whole) .5 oz 6% AA @ 25 mins

Wyeast 1968 Pitch @ 65F let rise over 7 days to 70F

Steep grain @ 160F for 15 minutes
Boil 60 minutes adding LME in the last 30 minutes
Cool to 65f and pitch. T-shirt, fan, and ice method letting rise to 70 at end of fermentation and giving time for a diacetyl rest (per wyeast recommendation).

I plan to let age in carboy until diacetyl rest is complete then into keg to cold condition and clarify.

I'm hoping this can be a quick beer and be ready in 14 days.

This is my first time using WY-1968 as well

any and all feed back appreciated
