It's more of just a quaffer than a knock-your-socks-off brew. As far as the astringency, that just comes with using dark roasted grains. You can use chalk in the strike water to reduce this I'm pretty sure, or it will mellow out a little with age.

Mine is good but seems a bit watery. Actually if I close my eyes it tastes a bit like coke. Anyone getting any of that?

I took mine to the homebrew meeting, and while everyone loved the taste and the head retention was good, watery mouthfeel was pretty much unanimous. If I make this again I'm going to mash at 158.

You could try using some Munich to build body 10-15% maybe. Or maybe some really light crystal.

Just brewed this today. After boil gravity was 1.044. Seems a little low even though I hit all my numbers. If this beer is worth redoing I might add another pound of 2 row. Hopefully if turns out good. I'm using white labs british ale for the first time.

After one week in the primary I have a gravity of 1020. This gives me an ABV of 3.3%. Alot lower than expected. The hydro does taste pretty good though....

Did you use the wlp004? That is a seriously low attenuation for that strain. Did it get really cold or something?

I used wlp005 (british ale). It's been a week at 68F and I moved it upstairs as it's warmer to maybe knock it down a few points. Even at 1020 the hydro sample didn't taste sweet, which I found surprising. I never rush my beers so hopefully it will drop a bit more....
