Notes
  • supposed to use crystal 120, but no british version available.
  • other yeasts to use = 1318, 1335, and 1275.
    -must areate beer extremely well, and build a very strong starter.
    If FG too high, stir up yeast cake
    -Look for first gold hops - makes good dry hop. - Also, consider amber malt instead of victory for a re-brew/mod (Used at 3 - 4% of grist).

    Target FG is 1.008-1.010.
    Target ABV is 4.2 - 4.5%

    Ferm:
    Start at 64F, with pitched yeast let free rise to 68F till 50-60% attenuated (about sg of 1.027 - 1.025), then drop temp back to 64F till complete. Age 1 week at FG, then crash cool to 3F for 3 days, and cellar for 1 week at 55F. Transfer to keg, Carb at 2.2 volumes of CO2.

    Target pitch rate is 0.5 to 0.75 ml/p/mill

    Brewing: Target pre-boil = 28.75 qt
