Just just brewed this on Sunday (1/27/13). I subbed a pound of cara pils for maltodextrin because the LHBS was out (any one know at what ratio to to swap these two?). OG was 1.064 and fermentation took off within about 8 hours. The taste as I was putting it into the fementer was smooth with a touch of coffee. I can't wait for this to finish up! Thanks for the recipe!

Just an update. Pulled my first pint last night. Absolutely amazing brew. Finished out at 7% ABV, well balanced, great mouthfeel. One of the better brews I've ever done. Honestly wouldn't change a single thing in this recipe. Thanks again OP!

# = pounds
2 row is the lightest form of malted barley, very popular for the base of many beers.

# is pounds, and 2 row is a common type of barley (as opposed to 6 row barley). You could google a pic of each and it will be pretty easy to see. 2 row is fairly common.

So, for example, 8# 2 row would be 8 pounds of 2-row ale malt (barley).

I've heard about this shortage of punctuation in the United Kingdom. I honestly thought it was a myth.

The marris otter should be ideal for the pale malt. For the crystal 40, look for caramel 40 or maybe even 60. I think (might be wrong) that caramel and crystal are the same thing. Not sure about a black patent substitute. I'll have to look into it. Finally, instead if malto dextrine, you can use dextrine malt (usually known as carapils) instead. Add about 1/2 lb. in the last 30 minutes of the mash.
With either carapils in the mash or dextrine powder in the boil, you should have the same end result....added dextrines providing a little better body, or a little less thin. Hope this helps.
