    this should be good, depending on what temp you mash at, I'm not familiar with that yeast so cant tell weather it finishes well or not and between the mash temp and the yeast that could change the sweetness some besides the ibu

    the recipe looks good

    Thanks. I probably try to mash at 67-68C.

    Ive used this yeast in a Mild and it seemed to really bring out the malt flavours. Hoping for the same here.

    Thanks for the feed-back.

    "Sweet" is going to depend on yeast selection more than mash temps. Mashing warmer will leave more dextrines but they are largely tasteless, contributing body. Mashing cooler will create more sugars that will ferment, thinning the body. Look at your yeast's attenuation. If it's below about 70%, you'll get a sweeter beer. Higher will give you a dry beer.

    Attenuation 73%. Perhaps Ill look at an alternative. Cheers for the advice.
