Madonna & Child Mild

Source: Marlon Hurst
Recipe added: 06/17/98

This is the first recipe that I derived on my own - hence the lack of experimentation! I brewed it to give away in honor of the birth of my first child. It took third in the first round of the 1998 AOB national competition (SE division). I originally used .5 oz of nugget for the bittering because I had them laying about. The Kent-Goldings is an attempt to decrease the bitterness slightly, making it more style-appropriate.

Mash the specialty grains at 158 for 20 minutes, sparge with 170F H20. I added a bit of irish moss 15 minutes before the end of the boil. But as this is a fairly dark beer, it probably wasn't necessary.
