Its Early days yet as just put it on, ergo fingers crossed remark. But using online research, and books by Protz and Howarth, and a lot of help from Seymour, I've finally given it a try. I've a couple of suggested recipes but trying Seymour's first.
Sounds great, how's it coming along?

Re: pilsner hop bittering

My next lager/pils is going to be bittered with Warrior and finished with Saaz. Just to report back, got this on tap now. Worked fantastically well with the warrior hops. 5g instead of the 30g of saaz so a lot less hop matter boiling for 90 mins. I added 20g of saaz towards the end. Lovely simple l...

Re: Differentiate Porter and Stout

Sad news for beer nerds: I just learned that Graham Wheeler, a legendary British brewing historian/author died November 30, 2017. He was a hero of mine, and at the risk of overstating it, much of my professional life's work is based on stuff I learned from him. He was a fiesty, cranky, know-it-all w...

So no Carafa III or caramunich II?
No, both of those would contribute immediately recognizable German attributes to your English-style ale.

Re: What is your favourite English hop variety?

I have posted elsewhere on ideas for using Boadicea and Olicana (have some First Gold too). I am wanting to go down the way of an all english pale ale / bitter style, but I dont have a flavour reference for the hops in question... I haven't tasted Olicana (though I'd love to). Following are my impr...

Re: Baird's Malt

At Civil Life Brewing Company in St Louis, Missouri, USA, we import English malt, hops and yeast for all our English-style ales. We don't like Baird's Maris Otter as much as Thomas Fawcett's, but we do really love Baird's CaraStan 30-37, Black Malt, Black Barley, and Roasted Barley. Great flavourful...

Re: What is your favourite English hop variety?

I'm drinking a beer at the moment that I brewed with Keyworth early and it is a pleasant beer, not earth shattering but pleasant. Interesting. I dry-hopped another cask with Keyworth Early, and will tap it very soon. I've used Keyworth Midseason in three brews, and like them very much. Very English...

Re: Kazbek Hop

I've brewed with it and tasted it in two commercial beers (that I know of). It was Introduced by Czech breeders in 2008 from Saaz and wild Russian hops. Reasonably high alpha acids, 5-8%, but mainly used for aroma. Fairly predictable German noble traits overall, supplemented by very subtle lemon and...

Re: pilsner hop bittering

I agree Magnum is ideal, and I've never gotten harshness from it. Rookie's right, Sterling is excellent. German-grown Northern Brewer is perfect for bittering too.
