Re: Making a simple English Mild.

I once spoke to Michael Gray and some of the brewing ledgers exist back to 1880 or just before in the Essex Records Office, as for Ridley's, Greene King has them languishing in the back of a damp cellar and aren't going to let people have access to them any time soon.

Re: Making a simple English Mild.

Hi Kyle T , Now for the tricky part !! ; When calculating the weight of malt , and the sugars weights , follow this quick route: Calculate the wort composition (weight of ingredients to the mash run) at the expected gravity @ copper/ boil up , eg 85% Pale Ale, 7% Crystal Malt, 5% Amber Malt, 3% Ter...

Re: Making a simple English Mild.

I would like to give something like this a go, but with 95% pale malt, 5% chocolate malt and 11% invert no 3 sugar, something does not quite add up I think? Also if using a combination of golden syrup and black treacle to replace the invert no3 do you know the percentages of each to use? As I learn...

Re: question for anyone that has done dennis king's galaxy delight

If you have the option of using pellet hops, I did it with Falconers Flight 7C's, 15g @ 90, 45g @ 15, 40g for the steep and 100g dry hop in the cask.

It was like drinking the fruit salad sweets. Admiral is also a good alternative aswell.

Re: Using a cask as a keg (sorry!)

I probably have all the pieces you need to run a cask at home, I can look if you are interested?

Re: BM owners (and GF / aio owners) would you go back?

I went from a 2v to a BM and back again. I found several issues with the BM that cost me more to try and resolve than I found worth it, since going back I haven't had any of the same issues.

They are creamers, not sparklers.

Re: AG#23 - 19th Century Porter

I would highly recommend the Durden Park 1850 using Chevallier, I made it some months ago and it was easily one of the nicest beers I made.

Re: How low can you go challenge.

The least I ever spent on a beer kit and ingredients was £14.05 and that was only because the beer kit was reduced to £8. Young's Harvest Mild that was, however, doing AG the least I have spent for a similar beer is £9.85

They are great, if Theakstons hadn't of put the price up I'd have got another wooden one.

Re: 1800s porter

I did see somewhere that Goose Island and Seirra Nevada were taking delivery of some Chevallier, it might be worth getting in touch with them.

Chevallier Malt

Morning all,

I picked up some Chevallier Heritage Malt from Rob the other week and I've decided what I'm going to brew with it, but aside from the information on the website does anyone have any experience with the malt in regards to mash time and what sort of flavour to expect?

Cheers.

Re: 1800s porter

I made the one from the Durden Park book and it was very good, it took around 6 weeks to mellow out enough but overall it didn't disappoint.
