the local brewing shop has a terrible selection - it's a question of going in there and seeing what you can make out of whatever stock there is.
It's a very dark ale with a strong, pleasant floury note. After three months in the barrel I bottled 20 pints, some of which survived for eighteen months and had turned into something wonderful. It's named in honour of a long dead pet.
Recipe type: Partial Mash
Batch Size: 5 imp gallon
Time in Boil: 2h
Primary Fermentation: about 2 weeks
Secondary Fermentation: six weeks
- 2lb Spraymalt light
- 6lb spray malt dark
- 1 can Diastatic malt extract
- 1 cup roast barley
- 1lb Crystal
- 2tsp sea salt
- Edme Yeast cultured over night.
- 1kg wheat - without anything to crush it, I soaked this
- overnight, boiled it for 20mins, rolling pinned it and then baked it dry in the oven until it was lightly toasted.
- 2 Oz Goldings 120min
- 1/2 oz goldings 15min
- 1/4 oz goldings into the fermentation bin
Mash the wheat with the DME and the crystal in one gallon, go for a temperature a little on the high side.
Run off the wort and add to the boiler with the spray malt and add first batch of hops plus the roast barley.
Add the second batch of hops at 1 3/4 h and give it another 15mins.
Put the 1/4 oz into the fermentation bin and run the hot wort onto it.
Top it up to 5 gal, pitch the yeast asap.
