Mild as in English Mild

Recommended Posts

Got a cheap just out of date Muntons Midland Mild concentrate.

 

1kg of Coopers brew sugar then made up to 23 litres

 

In the FV for 12 days

 

OG 1.040

FG 1.012

 

1 week in the bottle with 2 coopers carb drops and its a dead ringer for Tenants "SweetHearts"[happy] It tastes nothing like a homebrew?

 

Nice head and very flavourful.

 

I reckon this will be gone by the end of the weekend[devil]

Looks good. A mild has moved up to number 2 on my to-brew list now. I have just run out of my mid-strength beer and it is always good to have some middies handy.

My house beer is a mid-strength ale, which is lately a loose interpretation of an English Brown Ale - Mild but a little more hopped up.[whistling

 

Normally use Marris Otter and Dark Crystal but I brewed a batch today using 2.5kg of Navigator (pale malt) and 500g of PB2's Crystal Malt (colour spec' unknown but the aromas of honey, toffee and biscuit are delightful) [love]

 

Hopped it up with 20g Cascade (15min), 30g Wai-iti (10min), 40g Calypso (5min)and 25g Citra (in the cube).

Sounds like a loose interpretation indeed, but tasty.

 

What kind of yeast Paul? Or do you just stroll into the yeast lab and distract the professor dudes with an elaborate riddle while you fill up a stubby with slurry? [lol]

The lager cellar maintains our commercial ale yeast. From time-to-time, I might front up with empty PET bottle in hand and my best version of "puppy eyes" hoping to be directed to the current yeast tank.[biggrin]

 

Will probably ferment this one with 3 sachets of yeast from the Australian Pale Ale kit - it produces very clean and thorough ferments.

Paul, what temp did you mash at?

 

I am planning on mashing at 70 degrees for 30-40 minutes and ferment with Windsor. It should have a nice body (unlike me) [biggrin]

Didn't check the mash temp[whistling I had the strike temp at 75C - with a 3kg grain bill and 1kg : 4 litre ratio, it usually comes up in the very high 60s. Mash time was about 90mins.
