Hi Eric,
If you're using Munich malt , drop the % by 1/2 and replace with pale ale malt , might need to play with the caramel for colour correction though ,
Best Regards
Edd
Thanks Edd, didn't see the caramel and with no mild malt thought Munich would get nearer the colour. Will have another look at what is in stock and having caramel to hand will bear in mind what you advised.

I've read that some brewers go with vienna malt in place of mild.

Hi Rookie ,
Maybe in a top weight mild , but I'd go with Pale@90% , Crystal @ 6% , Amber @ 2% and 2% Terrified Wheat , the sugars ( Invert & Caramel) and a black malt broth, ( added cooled at the end of fermentation ) ; as the Vienna Malt is a bit 'Big' flavour wise ,
Cheers
Edd

Once I'm able to brew again I've got to do a mild.
I'll probably have to brew with extracts for a while, anyone have any good extract mild recipes?
