I've made this 6 times now and I love it!! Actually, The batch I'm drinking now is the first time I've made it to recipe. My favorite take on Orfy's mild is brewed with a half and half blend of EKG/Fuggles with Windsor yeast. The fruityness of the Windsor goes well with this beer.
Cheers Orfy!

I just finished drinking my second keg of this brew. I used Willamettes instead of Fuggles due to availability. I carbonated to 1.64 volumes and served at 59°F. It will be difficult to not brew batch after batch of this stuff it's so good.

Has anyone added small quantities (4-8 oz) of either flaked rye or flaked barely to this recipe with much success? Would using both of these be counter-productive to giving a mild slightly more body? I tried making a mild once using a kit very early on in my brewing experience and it came out tasing very thin. Thus, swmbo wants a mild with more body than my first attempt.

Maybe you could add a bit of maltodextrin?

I am brewing this now (Extract version with specialty grains). I plan on adding a bit of maltodextrin to the boil with 10 mins left. I am only adding a few ounces so I dont think the flavor profile will change that much.

flaked rye would be an interesting addition to this style of beer. a little spice could add a great element. try it and let us know!

Just brewed my first batch of this on Friday. Came in really close to OG, considering this is only my second all grain batch I'm rather happy about it. The only change I made was using White Labs English Ale yeast. I can already tell I'm gonna have a hard time waiting for this to be ready.

Hi "ThePaganJew", I decide to brew my first all-grain beer and thought starting with this recipe as I love brown ale styles.
I have brew extract before but even though I’m very VERY new in all this, so I would appreciate your help.
The original post by Orfy(Jan 2008) look really nice as ingredients seams to be easy to find for me (If you know a good web site store, let me know) and I think have the equipment to do all-grain, so, would you help me describing a little more detailed procedure for brewing this one? I’ll really appreciate it, you can send that to me through private message.
Thanks a lot.
