Notes

This recipe is nearly the same recipe out of the John Palmer book - "Brewing Classic Styles".
Items I changed or added:
+Melanoidin malt - was not in original recipe
+Increased Honey Malt from 6oz to 8 oz
+Increased Bittering Hops from .75 oz to 1 oz
+The base malt was originally only British malt but I am a poor bastard and I didnt want to go that route so I split it up. It called for slightly more than a pound less than I have but wanted the gravity to be high and still be in style.
