Your favourite Graham Wheeler recipe...

Post by Brewedout » Sun Feb 03, 2019 7:43 pm

Just dusted off my well used copy of GWs 3rd edition.

This was the book that got me into brewing. I have brewed quite a lot of them, but still loads left to try.

Which recipe(s) is/are your favourite(s)?

I quite like Exmoor gold, bathams and Adams explorer.

So many to choose from but I had a beer made by another homebrewer recently from the European book. Nussdorf St Thomas, absolutely sublime beer. It was made by someone who is an excellent brewer anyway but it was so good!


From a brief conversation with Graham I know he thought this book was under appreciated and I’d have to agree based on that beer alone. I know he told others similar. It’s nice to know he lives on by his recipes.

The Sarah Hughes mild is a cracker as well from book three.

Oh yes Sarah Hughes is a great too, I'd forgotten about this one.
I hadn't heard of the European book, but I just ordered one second hand. I'm definitely looking forward to its arrival.
Of all the books I own, GWs is definitely the most used by a long way.
Which beer to brew next is the question...

That’s always the question! Do the Nussdorf you’ll not regret it.

If you like milds, the Bateman's Dark is a cracker.

What yeast do you recommend for it? I bought GW's European book second hand a few weeks ago but haven't brewed anything from it yet but I noticed that he doesn't specify a yeast

The one I’ve had was crossmaloof Kolsch but maybe WLP036 or similar

Nussdorf St Thomas and Zum Uerige Alt both cracking beers. If only Graham could have sold the book for the price it is now selling for. RIP Graham

WLP 036 is the one to use it is a Dusseldorf Alt yeast

My two favourites so far are Hopback summer lightning and yet another vote for Sarah Hughes dark ruby mild.
Only brewing for a year now, I have repeated batches of both of the above, different styles but friends and I have enjoyed both enormously.
I currently only use dried yeast and have found either crossmyloof Cali common or Mangrove Jack Liberty Bell great for the summer lightning, with MJ Empire ale for the Sarah Hughes.

I made summer lightening many years ago, I'm also tempted to have another go at this too. The decision for which brew next are too challenging Image

I've made Summer Lightening before, can't remember where I got the recipe but it's not in GW"s European book....at least not in my 1995 edition

Edit
Just found it in the British book...it wasa great beer

Yes it is, I wasn't aware of it till this post. You can pick up a second hand copy online for about £5 delivered.
