Was this the mild that you had on the bar at the Homebrew Festival this year ? I thought it was the nicest mild I've had in a long time.

I dough in with 25 lt, when I pull the malt pipe up to drain I rinse the grains with 2 to 3 lt of hot tap water. I beleive it's more of a rinse than a sparge and the technique has worked really well for me, I generally get 89% mash efficiency.

This was the one that was on Friday evening with the red barrel pump clip.

A few slight differences on this one but essentially the same beer.

Thanks, I'll do this one after the weizenbock that I'm doing next, I would have done it next but I'm currently fermenting a weizen which will provide the yeast for the weizenbock :beer:

Making the Invert Syrup is easy.

Enjoy.

just done the same brew ridleys mild using your 1983 recipe and no sparge got 48 litres at 1.038 after liquoring back was aiming for 46 litres and added 2 litres boiled water to reduce gravity.used golden syrup and treacle for invert no3
almost exact same BHE 81% according to beersmith

The resuls aimed at 46litres got additional 4 in demijohn after liquoring back

Finally got round to brewing this and I put it on the beer engine on Saturday, the only thing I skipped was the oak (impatient and lazy :))

What an excellent mild recipe this is, I found it best through a 'green southern' sparkler, delicious, so much so that I may have had a little more than I should have done on Saturday evening :drink: :drink: :drink: :D

Thanks for the recipe Kyle :beerbang:

Glad you enjoyed it Colin :beer:

I've made it a couple of times. I've since found out the O.G. and ABV are 1.034 and 3.4% respectively. Next time I get round to it I'm going to add the oak to the fermenter and test it so when it goes into the cask it won't get overpowered.
