For those of us who like to explore the malt side of life I highly recommend this style. I've brewed jamil's recipe a couple of times and it is good. Unlike Orfy though I haven't had the opportunity to compare it to the real thing in its native environment. Another style to consider if you are tired of hoppy beers (especially with the current hop situation) are Scottish Ales. Avoid recipes with smoked malt - there is a faint hint of smokiness already in a properly formulated recipe and they don't brew with it in Scottland.

Should you decide you like the style, I can recommend "Mild Ales" from the Classic Beer Styles Series.

There is a pale and dark mild there. The dark mild is on my list to have one tap for the summer.

My recent attempt at a mild (for Christmas) was this:

6 lb. Munton Fison Pale LME
1/2 lb. 90-L crystal malt (US)
1/4 lb. Cara-Pils malt (US)
1/4 lb. chocolate malt (US)
0.4 oz. 12.2% AAU Chinook hops (60 min)
1 oz. 3.7% AAU Liberty hops (15 min)

The grains were steeped at 155 deg. F. for 17 minutes with about 2 qts. of water. The wort was boiled for 60 minutes. O.G. was 1.039, and I didn't bother with measuring the final gravity. I don't know if this was a true blue Mild, but it was tasty and most definitely, mild. You can drink a big ol' pint of this, and not get all sleepy. I'll brew this again, but I'd like to get a little more "roasty" in the malt flavors. Maybe bumping up the chocolate malt to 1/3 lb. and substituting the Cara-Pils with more crystal ought to do the trick.

I've been thinking about the Baltic Porter style. But lately it's been Milds and Ordinary Bitters for me.

Besides the web site it is in his "Brewing Classic Styles" book which I would highly recommend.

And here's a link to Jamil's Mild show. Jon Plise's comments are more inane than usual. Other than that it's a very good show.

orfy,
Can you suggest a comparable White Labs or Wyeast yeast that I can pick up at my LHBS?

I am looking forward to brewing this

Orfy, thanks for posting this recipe!

Mild English ale is the reason I got into home brewing in the first place and there are few if any credible sources for MEA recipes on the internet.
