Brewed my variant of this yesterday:

10 lbs Briess Pale Ale malt
.75 lbs Crystal 50-60L
.25 lbs Simpson's Extra Dark Crystal

60m: 1.5 oz Kent Goldings (AA 5.0%)
20m: .25 oz Kent Goldings, .5 oz Fuggles (4.0%)
1m: .25 oz Kent Goldings, .5 oz Fuggles

Rehydrated S-04. Ambient basement fermentation temp of 58F (so low 60s for the beer).

Also made this my first batch with 1/4 crushed campden tablet to eliminate the chloramine in my municipal tap water.

Mashed in at 154, finished after 75 minutes at 152. Pretty good for BIAB in a pot! 24 hours later, I see the krausen ring when holding up a flashlight to the ale pale, so it's looking good. OG was 1.051, right about where I expected for my brewhouse efficiency (~70% these days).

Can't wait to drink this in January. Will be a welcome respite from the Minnesota winter. And while this is super nerdy, the whole "fantasy novel" vibe is working for me... been logging more hours than my SWMBO might prefer playing Skyrim!

Cheers.

Keep us posted borden, I'm interested to hear how it turns out with the MO substitution.

Will do. I'm going to be getting a corona mill so I can buy base malt in bulk, and I'd really like something versatile but relatively cheap. Domestic pale ale malt would seem to fit the bill, as it could fit into almost any style as a base malt without compromising too much on British pales, stouts, and the like. This should be a fun test drive for it.

Has anyone else had little to no Krausen with WY1968? I pitched 2 packs and had a quick start. Keep waiting for things to get frothy, but it's staying pretty mellow. 66 degrees at this moment.

Thoughts?

I accidentally added 1oz of fuggle pellets to the beer at 20 minutes into the boil. Do you think this will ruin the beer?

Nope, it will be fine!

I added them in addition to the hops the recipe calls for. Will it be too bitter?

It will be more bitter than the recipe intends, but not so bitter that the beer will be ruined. Some people may actually prefer it more bitter, as yours will be. It will still be a great beer. Don't worry!
