We used the continental 2-row malt from Baird's for the base, and added some Maris Otter to diversify the malt profile since it is a malty beer. Used cara-brown to add malt sweetness and toasted flavors while also further adding to the malt backbone. Crystal 90 was used to give caramel flavors and aroma. We chose chocolate for added color and slight chocolate flavor. Magnum was used as a high alpha acid hop for bittering, and Fuggle was chosen for earthy and floral aromas that are characteristic of the style. Wyeast 1335 was chosen because it is a traditional British yeast that supports malty flavors and finishes clean. Chose 68 for fermentation to produce some esters but keep them somewhat subdued.

Excellent recipe for a less common style. Missing mash/sparge water volumes and temperature.
