what'd I make?
Today I brewed my 2nd AG. Was going to follow a Bass clone recipe but I didn't have everything I needed--specifically the hops it called for, and the 60L crystal malt. So at best, this was inspired by the clone recipe, but really I didn't follow it at all, past the base malt and mash. So, here's what I brewed:
9# english 2 row (marris otter)
1# 40L crystal malt,
Mashed 90 min at 150 degrees, sparged twice at 170 degrees
1oz Kent Goldings, pellet forms in a muslin hop sock (start of boil)
1oz Fuggles, flower form, added loose--no sock (last couple minutes of boil)
Then removed Kent Goldings sock cooled and dumped whole thing, without straining the Fuggles, onto Wyeast 1098 Brit Ale yeast
So, any clue what this should turn out like? Obviously it's an ale. Would this be a British Ale?
