    Hi all,

    Does anybody know of a fairly strong pale ale or a bitter of which I can make and have fermented in about 6 weeks.

    I will be using the BIAB method and I have a electrim boiler.

    I am not after something to hoppy but I do like a recipe with a bit of a taste to it.


    Thanks

    Hello, I’m fairly new to AG brewing (just completed my 10th brew) but one of my favourites so far has been a recipe based on Ruddles County. It came in around 5% and was very drinakable and quantities are for a 25litre batch:

    16.5 litres mash @ 65.6C for 75 mins
    Sparge with 20 litres at 75.6

    5.15kg Pale Malt
    0.22kg Caramel/ Crystal Malt

    25g Northdown @ 60mins
    20g Challenger @ 60 mins
    25g East Kent Goldings @ 15 mins

    Irish moss for clearing and a sachet of Nottingham Yeast

    I’ve also done a clone of Jaipur which is my absolute favourite although quite hoppy so have not included it here. Happy to add it if you are interested!!

    Like I said, I’m fairly new to this game so not sure if there are better options.....if there are, let me know please!!

    Cheers

    Andy

    @SkyBlue could I get that recipe for Jaipur please!

    To the OP, get a copy of Greg Hughes book, lots of good recipes in there.

    Another vote for Greg Hughes ESB recipe, bottled mine last week and it tasted good out of the FV.

    @SkyBlue Your Jaipur clone, this is also for a 25L batch right?

    Thanks for the recipe, I've also noted this one down as one to try in the not too distant future - Cheers!
