Turricaine, Just wanted to let you know I cracked a bottle this afternoon and it tastes great. Real close to what I remember the Hobgoblin I bought at the beerstore. Taking a case to my wifes family reunion this weekend and letting the other case sit for a few more weeks to condition more.

Actually I didn't chose any of the ingredients, as I said it came from a recipe I got a book called Beer Captured. Also I did the extract version which calls for much less grains. It came out good, we drank some this past weekend at a family reunion. Did not seem too strong as far as ABV.

Well my 2nd ever AG batch has just cleared up enough to start with its consumption. Even though no fining were added it seems to have become transparent already after less than 3 weeks since the brew date. It doesnt taste great mind you.

I definately am liking the idea of using 10 pounds of base-malt (eg Marris Otter) and then adding only minimal amounts of £djuncts. I want to use roasted varieties that go beyond yellow/orange and impart a copper color on the finished batch.

The shop-bought Hobgoblin ale has a very toasted flavor too which is quite agreeable. I even read in JP's e-book that you can toast some of your own base-malt in a homeoven until it caramalizes and then combine this will the bulk of the grains.
