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!
