I really liked my version of this beer, but unfortunately I'm pretty sure it had a small infection. It was highly over carbed, but not quite a gusher... It still tasted decent, but there was something not quite right about it. I'll have to remake it again some day.

I have a bag of RAHR 2-row that I plan to use for the base malt instead of the Maris Otter pale malt. I'm reading that the Maris Otter has a bit more "biscuit" character to it compared to a generic 2-row.

Any thoughts on adding anything else to make up for the difference in these base malts? Maybe a 1/4-1/2# of biscuit malt (for the 18# of base malt)?

This is going to be my next batch. It'll be the 3rd time I've brewed it. I have yet to decide if I'm going to use up some 1272 yeast or go buy the 2565.

I like the recipe "as is" so well I'd rather not mess with it.

I decided to get some wlp029 & brew it as is. Can't wait.

Primarily because my keezer was at capacity and once I get my beers on gas, I'm too tempted to start tapping the keg.

I wanna do an all grain 5G batch of this on Mon. Beer tools, etc. isn't fired up yet. Would you help me with batch sparge volume[s], preboil gravity, and preboil volume. Mash in is at 154 right? This would really help.
