I just had the opportunity to enjoy a Young's Special London Ale, and think it is going to be my next all grain home brew.

Anybody have any good recipes?

I noticed AHS has a clone for sale for $45!!! OUCH!

Thanks!!

Developed this recipe based on some advice and a recipe from an experienced brewer on another forum (I think theirs was for the draught Young's special)

It's metric but I've included percentages.

Grain: 5.5kg Simpson's Marris Otter (91.7%)
500g Joe White crystal 50-60L (8.3 %)
Mash: 70% efficiency, 66 degrees, 90 minutes
Boil: 90 minutes SG 1.044 30 liters
Hops: 25g Fuggles (4.75% AA, 90 min.) (15.5 IBU)
