I'm pleased with this recipe! It yielded a nice drinkable mild with a pleasing flavor and little alcohol. The no sparge brewing gave the beer a nice malty sweet complex aroma that I don't seem to get when I sparge the grains. I used American Tettnanger, which is supposed to be the same as Fuggles so I suppose they could be used instead of the Tettnanger. I will probably try the beer again to see what could make it better. Perhaps I'll have time to culture up a pure strain next time. As it is, the dry yeast worked fine. Basically a nice session beer.
