OK, For my third, fourtnh and fifth AG brews, I want to keep things simple and get to know my hops better. I'm going to stick with MO for all three brews as I want to concentrate on a good malty base and hopefully keep the hops on the subtle side, and at the low end of the IBU scale.
The first recipe will be with EKG, the second with Fuggles. I would like a suggestion for hops for the third attempt.
This is the first recipe I've tried to formulate myself in beersmith. As I am doing 30 gallons in 3 batches I don't want to screw things up too badly. Beer style is not important, and even though this will look like piss, I have decided against darkening it to stick with a SMASH for my edumacation.
All criticism and suggestions gratefully received.
Oh yes, although I'm not interested at this point in style categories, I am working towards my personal recipe for a maltier ESB or something along those lines
