Beersmith told me that Jamils exact ingredients would be a 6.3% beer which is a little heavy for me.
So I scaled everything back and kept the hops/gravity ratio the same. I'm also adding some malto dextrin I have left over for a nice chewy beer.
This should come in right at 5%.
So here's what I'm going with:
Batch Size: 5.50 gal
Boil Size: 7.00 gal
Estimated OG: 1.053 SG
Estimated Color: 37.9 SRM
Estimated IBU: 25.4 IBU
Brewhouse Efficiency: 72.0 %
Boil Time: 60 Minutes
8.00 lb Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM)
0.75 lb Black (Patent) Malt (500.0 SRM)
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 80L (80.0 SRM)
0.50 lb Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM)
1.50 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00%] (60 min)
0.50 lb Malto-Dextrine (Boil 5.0 min)
1.00 lb Milk Sugar (Lactose) (0.0 SRM)
I'll mash at 152-154. Don't want to go higher because the grain bill will already leave a lot of residual sweetness...not to mention the lactose.
This is a sipping desert beer so just 5-gallons on this batch.
