Plum Pudding

Post by MatthewM » Thu Dec 28, 2017 1:54 am

Evening

JW Lees do a plum pudding ale which is a reasonably dark Christmas pudding ale. I’ve seen lots of winter warmers around but nothing with the depth of a heavy malt ale which I think this is.

Has anyone tried it or got a clone please?

Thank you

The base recipe is more or less online, so I've included what I'd do below. Ideally you'd use the J W Lees yeast as they have their own strain, cloudwater did a canned beer with it a while back, you could harvest it from that? If not maybe the Yorkshire ale yeast. S-04 or Windsor as a back up...

Assuming it's similar to Titanic Plum Porter in fruit flavour, you'd want a plum ice cream flavouring as that's what they use. Something like this would probably do it but you'd need to gauge it by using a 1ml pipette and a pint of similar beer. Mash it fairly high to keep plenty of body, unless you're using Windsor, then mash at any temp as it won't eat maltotriose anyway.

Hope this helps!
