This turned out a very tasty ale, but: something I will not do again: Dry hop with cascades (to lemony, citrusy), Fuggles or Goldings should work much better.

Single infusion mash 155F 75 mins. 4 gal 175F sparge with 1/3 tsp lactic acid to reduce ph, total sparge 8 gals. Added burton salts to boil. Boil 30 mins, add 1oz goldings, boil 30mins add 1 oz golding and irish moss, boil 30mins. Total boil 90mins. Cool and pitch yeast. I used the yeast from secondary of a porter which was YeastLabs Whitbread and enough of the porter to give the beer some color. Ferment 7 days, transfer to secondary with .5oz cascade dry hop 2 weeks. OG 1.042 FG 1.012 IBU's 38.
