Hello Edd,
Thanks for the reply, i will look out for your post for Northgate ales. You mentioned Old Chester, i think that Greenhalls carried on brewing it after they closed the Northgate down in 69. A lot of people turned their nose up at Greenhalls bitter but the Original was a favourite of mine.
Dave.

Thanks again, going to try that Allsopp's Mild. =D>
And I have.

Unfortunately I didn't have a Burton yeast, used London Ale. This yeast throws a little sulphur but probably not as pronounced as Burton. I find the London Ale yeast (WLP 013) to be a little boring tbh. The thing that will surprise most modern drinkers about the beer is of course the colour. These days if a "Mild" isn't dark it's not a "Mild". This beer needs to be drunk young as intended i.e. Mild, not Stock or Stale. The important element for me is the Mild Ale malt, without it the beer would be very uninteresting. I wonder if the times it was brewed reflect the ingredients used, something of an austerity brew. At 3.4% it needs to be and can be drunk quite quickly, I suspect it will dry out really rapidly. Thanks for the recipe. =D>

OK will take some. Have to use SWMBO's new phone to do it as the proper camera has fallen over so might not be great.

Have to say Edd it has turned out better than it looked on paper. As I said above this is not one to last. I will be taking it to an Anglian Craft Brewers meeting on Saturday so will have a lot more feedback on it then.

Thanks for this most interesting thread.
Edd,you mentioned your interest in breweries to the east of the Pennines, have you any information Nimmo's of Castle Eden? I'm especially interested in Nimmo's XXXX of the nineteen fifties and sixties.

Very many thanks fr this Edd, that is very valuable information. I'll contact the Record Office having intended doing that for family history for many years but never have, but this time there's no excuse. I'll PM for an exchange of email addresses too. Again many thanks.
Eric.

How does one go about getting this info? There are long-defunct breweries here in Thirsk that would be great to research. Getting recipes would be amazing

Hi ,
I'll have a look around and see what I can find , could you let me know which brewers you're interested in? , as the only North Yorkshire brewery whose records I've seen are those of Charles Rose & Co , The Old Brewery , Malton 1895-8 ( just after Rose's bought the brewery) .
A couple of other bits though , not all breweries production records have survived in public archives , quite a few would have been fed to the boilers , burnt or just skipped !! , sometimes the brewer at the time of closure might have 'rescued' some .
Happy to convert any that turn up though ! , pop me a pm if you'd like to correspond directly ,
Cheers
Edd
There were two Thirsk breweries - Kirkgate (also known as Castle) Brewery and also Rhoads Brewery.

As far as I can tell, they were both defunct by around the early 1900s.

Kirkgate Brewery was also a maltsters. Interesting that if this was common practice, then regional beers would have differed by virtue of not just the water profile and yeast, but also the local malts.

Hi ,
I don't think that any old brewing production records from those will have survived , though if they were attached to pubs , maybe they're hiding in the attics? , another research avenue might be a notice on the nearest local history forum group's webpage .
On the locally made malt thing , yup it would add individuality along with process steps , and yeast !
I'll keep digging though ,

Cheers

Edd
The buildings where they ‘were’ are now houses. I’m sure someone somewhere will have more info, but getting my hands on it will be the hard bit.

I've not got a release date as yet , as I've not found a publisher yet ! .
I've done the fun part with writing the recipies, I've just got to put the flesh on the bones , and choose illustrations !! ,
Cheers

Good luck finding a publisher or perhaps self publish on Lulu as Ron Pattinson does.

Pete Brown's book took an age to get published, personally I would never buy with a crowdfunder again. Lulu is a better bet.
