Notes

The Home Brewer's Recipe Database, 3rd edition
Thomas Hardy's Ale: OG: 1.125. Malt: 100% Pipkin Pale Malt. Hops: Challenger, Northdown. Late Hops: Challenger, Goldings. Dry Hops: Challenger, Goldings. IBU: 50-70. Source RP5. Malt: Pipkin pale malt, Lager malt. Hops: Goldings. Source JE1/2
Notes: Formed from a management buy-out of the Eldridge Pope brewery. See Eldridge Pope and O'Hanlon's.

I mash high (155'F) as the original Thomas Hardy ale was 1.123-1.125 and 12% yet WLP099 attenuates high, this should leave some unfermentable sugars, maximize body, and keep the ABV closer to 12%.

Pre-boil gravity should be 1.062-1.063 for 6-gallon volume, final volume of 3 gallons. (estimate 4 hour boil time & 12% evaporation rate)
