Notes
I used The recipe directly from Zamil Zainasheff and John Palmers "Brewing Classic Styles". I made some changes because I was not able to get the exact ingredients that were in the book. I used London Ale 1028 also. I believe that this will be more on the English Porter side of the style but it should still be great. Thanks Zamil and John!!
< I just started popping the caps off this brew and it is really quiet drinkable. I may be brewing it again soon. It is the first recipe I have followed in awhile but I cannot find any real flaws in it.If I brew it again I might add a few more points of flavor hops. This beer tastes very smooth with the hops not jumping out so if you like a ton of hop flavor keep that in mind. Cheers >
