Default Two Kids Brewing Incredulous (Engish Ordinary Bitter)

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WLP002
Yeast Starter: Small, if your yeast isn\'t fresh.
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.037
Final Gravity: 1.008-1.010
IBU: 24
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 5 SRM
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 4
Tasting Notes: Dry, but extremely flavorful. Bready and smooth with a tangy finish.

This recipe is for 80% efficiency, which is what I get on my equipment.

5.5 lbs Maris Otter
1/2 lb English medium crystal
1/4 lb Special roast

1oz Whitbread Goldings Variety (WGV) 60m to bitter (looking for ~25 IBU)
1/2oz WGV 20m
1/2oz WGV Flameout

Mash at 156 or higher to prevent this beer from drying out too much. You could also go up on the crystal to a pound for a sweeter beer.

This is my house ale and I try to have it on tap all the time. It's nice to be able to have 5 or 6 pints of something and still be able to carry on a conversation.

Ha! Sorry, somehow managed to miss it. It's all WGV. Half an ounce at 20 and flameout, and the rest to bitter to ~25 IBU.

I brewed this again with a mix of Northdown and WGV. I really like the combination- I may have to do it again.

A small update- this beer is awesome if you cut the Maris with some 2-row (50/50). I also like to mash hot and fast- 160F for 30 minutes does it for me. Maintains plenty of body and enough residual sweetness to deal with the bitterness. I've also moved all the aroma hops to one 5m addition, but you could go without them entirely if you want.

WLP002, but I would love to get my hands on some WLP025. If someone has a slant of it somewhere I would trade lots of beer!
I have also done this with S-04 but it gets pretty dry. I've been playing around with this recipe a lot lately. I love to mess with this beer.
