I am fermenting old school style in a cellar hallway that is cool during the day and cold at night. I brewed this about 1 week ago and need to do a diacetyl rest which I am going to do this weekend. Then I am going to transfer to secondary and ferment to 2 * C for four weeks. Then I am bottling and cellaring until May 3rd (NHBD). I will keep you posted as it turns.

This beer really took a long time to arrive. The heavy malt bill really fermented out well and the lagering cleared this beer to a crystal liking. It really took its time conditioning in the bottle and took almost 2 months to carbonate at 2* C. I had to raise the temp to 4 for the last days in order to get them going. When I tried the first one it was sooo sweet (due to the addition of the corn sugar) that it tasted like a brew that you would distill for wiskey as it had not carbonated fully at that time. After a few more months in the bottle, it kicks ass. I love this beer and it became one of the best I brewed. This recipe is slightly low on the hops so If I was to brew it again I would raise the IBUs a tad.

Pretty solid receipe, thank you. Trying it this weekend. Using Weyermann Dark Crystal and Dark Munich for replacements, and a different varity of hops retaining the Fuggles and Saaz. I'll be sure to post along the results.

Tried a bottle last night. Mine could use a little more time lagering to hopefully kill off the butterscotch aroma but thankfully none of the smell carried over into the taste. What a great beer, and recipe, thanks again!

Sligo,

Curious did it get better with time? Like I said it took a long time to carbonate at such a low temp, but I still hear people who were lucky enough to have a couple talk about this beer. I have yet to replicate this recipe, but I have it on my to do list before the end of this year...(yeah I know its soon, but I brew every Tuesday so I should be able to fit this in, especially now since it lagering season!

Let me know how this one matured or if you modified it more etc. Thanks man!

Yes, it was incredibly good after another 4 months of bottle conditioning at semi-lager temps. Mine was a small batch and giving out the rest was tough. I plan on making this again soon, and I have this on the list of must-do recipes for the season.
