Notes

Recipe made for Arsegan 50L all-in-one kettle. (Hopcat, Robobrew, etc.)
Mash in at 55 for 15 minutes.
Mash at 67C for 90 minutes.
Mash out at 78 for 10 minutes.

Fill kettle to 42 litres.
Remove 7 litres for sparge. (warm slowly on stove)
At mash in temp (55) add milled grains slowly.
Mash per above.
Two hops drops. At -60 minutes then at -10 minutes. 2nd hops is more "flavour" than aroma.
Steep final hops 15 minutes then remove and cool.
Aerate and yeast.
Using S-04 English Ale yeast (big starter!) and doing initial fermention at 17C. (3rd brewing using 15C.) Raising to 20C after ~3 days.

This is the 3rd brewing of this recipe with small tweaks. This time using CaraRed instead of CaraMunich and returning to Pale Ale as the base instead of Pilsner + Vienna.

The grain wasn't properly milled on the 3rd brewing. Lost efficiency and added sugar to overcompensate. 6.3% now. But the recipe is sound.

Picture of first batch uploaded. Waiting for picture of the 3rd.
