Based on all the comments here I decided I had to try this recipe out! Unfortunately, I went down to my LHBS and they didn't have most of the British grains (which is to be expected?). Luckily, they recommended good substitutions and I was able to get 2/5 called for malts. I grabbed Magnum hops and WLP013 London Ale yeast and headed home also with my new Blichmann burner — finally got my own!

Everything went according to plan and after chilling the wort I pulled up a sample in my wine thief and the O.G. was spot on at 1.036. I threw the yeast starter in that I began ~36 hours before and later tonight it's already humming along at a nice fermentation.

I should mention that I pulled the airlock off and gave it a smell... absolutely amazing smell of molasses. Anyone else get that on theirs?

Thanks again for the recipe flyangler18!
Cheers,
Ben

BrewToppers - Congrats on the new burner and on hitting the OG spot on! I don't recall a molasses scent emanating from the airlock, but I brewed this quite awhile ago. I need to brew this again, though I need to get a secondary regulator so that it doesn't get overcarbed (to a usual pale ale level) next time. You will enjoy this tasty brew, I'm sure.

Can anyone help me with a partial mash or extract version of this? I'm not really set up for all grain yet. Thanks

Arrg, it seems that every good recipe I find turns out to be a gallon or tow over my brew pot volume. How can I mod these directions to end up with 5.5 or so gallons to ferment? My brew pot only holds 7.5 gal.

You could Brewsmith or a brewing calculator to scale the ingredients slightly.

This is an excellent recipe. I'm enjoying a pint now and I love it. It's a bit young and could use slightly more carbonation at this point but this might be a regular brew for me.
Any opinions on adding 0.5# victory to this recipe? I was thinking it could only add to the aroma and flavor of this brew and doesn't increase the ABV beyond the style

It seems like a long time since anyone has posted in this thread.

I am planning to brew this on the weekend, and I am wondering if people are still brewing this, and if so what changes they have made? I am thinking of adding a wee bit of Special B to the mix.

I brewed this up several days ago but I did some violence to the original, mainly because there were it men not available.

For a 15 gal batch:
17 lbs marris
1.5 crystal 60
1 crystal 120
8 oz chocolate malt
3.2 black patent
1.25 east Kent goldings (at boil)
1 oz fuggles (1/2 hour)

Mash at 156
Wyeast 1335 (Brit ale 2)

I nailed the numbers dead on and it is fermenting madly at about 64 degrees.

Need to look at adding this to the rotation.
