Notes

page 109 from "the Homebrewers Guide to Vintage Beer"

Recipe Alterations:
The crystal 60 was crystal 40

Added one more pound of base malt

Tasting Notes:
A very copper beer in color. Light hops taste and a reasonable malt character. This beer is easy drinking and refreshing. The Whitbread yeast is the star in this beer.
