Notes

this recipe is an attempt to re-create an 1870's English dinner ale

cooling the fermenter with frozen water bottles
at 4pm, with six bottles in, beer temp was 70 degrees
I added some fresh bottles and switched out two
ideal range for this yeast is 59-68 degrees

for the first five or six days, held the liquid temp to between 62 and 66 degrees. then let it rise to around 68 degrees to finish.

racked on Saturday, June 23 to PET carboy

Saturday, June 30
bottled with 5 oz. corn sugar in 3 cups boiled water
yield: 54 bottles
OG = 1.045
FG = 1.008
ABV = 4.8
pink crowns
pale golden color
Fuggles aroma and spicy note in the finish!
