This is my house recipe for a typical, easy drinking, English session bitter.
The combination of Progress and WGV hops gives it a wonderfully fresh, earthy, floral flavour.
It tastes best when served at about 11 - 13C but it's good straight out of the fridge. I like to use a dry finishing yeast with this.

3.5 Kg – Maris Otter or Golden Promise
200 g – Crystal Malt 80L (140 EBC)
70 g – Black Malt

13g – Progress Hops (8%) – 90 minutes
13g – WGV Hops (7%) – 90 minutes

12g – WGV Hops (7%) – 10 minutes

Protofloc tablet (or Irish Moss) - 10 minutes

Wyeast 1099 Whitbread Ale Yeast or your favourite English Yeast.

Adjust your equipment profile to give the following:

OG 1040
IBU 24
ABV 3.8

I use a single infusion mash at 66C for 75 minutes. I want to try a step mash to see if it makes any difference.

The black malt adds a touch of colour. You can leave it out if you wish.
You can easily scale this recipe to make it stronger. It makes a good English style IPA, especially when dry hopped for a few days.

I've brewed it many times so it's tried and tested. Please try it and let me know what you think.

Serve with bread, cold meat, pickles and Colmans mustard.
When the chill sciroco blows, and winter tells a heavy tale
When pies, and daws, and rooks and crows do sit and curse the frost and snows
Then give me ale.

I did an all Citra beer with 90 gramms of Citra (one packet) divided equally over five additions during the boil and it was a terrific beer. :beer: :drink:

The one above has a bit more Citra than I used but it certainly looks to be an interesting beer.
I might give it a go. :D
The worst thing that can happen if I die is that my wife will sell all my brewing equipment for what I told her I paid for it

Hi Andy,

I take a loock at your recipe.
Gonna try it!

Some tecnhical questions:
1. Yor mash water volume is 28L, right? How much sparge water you use to get 30.5 boil volume? I imagine 5L.
2. What is the SG and the end of the mash? SG 1.036?
3. Boil off 3L/hour?
4. Trub loss: 3L?


:cheers:

Luis,

I don't actually keep super accurate figures, but in response to your questions.......

1. I fill the 20L BM up to the 25 litre mark and use that for the mash. I then sparge/rinse with 5 litres at about 78 degrees.

2. Original (Post Boil) Gravity was 1.044 into the fermentor.

3. Boil off is set to 3 litres an hour in Beersmith, but I don't actually check this any more so actual results may vary.

4. Trub loss is set to 4 litres in Beersmith, but again this varies depending on the amount of hops used and how keen I am to tilt the BM and salvage every drop of wort. I also don't bother to check this any more and just leave Beersmith set to 4 litres.

Sorry that I don't have any better information for you.

I tend to just keep things simple use the same 25 litres mash water and five litres sparge water for nearly every brew I do and accept any slight variations in gravity or volumes.
Cheers :cheers:
Andy
