    i really like the personal brew day posts, so,

    Burton Ale
    I got this recipe from an old Brew TV show and tweaked it.

    16 lb Simpsons marris otter
    1 lb Munich L10
    1 pint Nottingham yeast slurry
    8 oz home grown fuggels and goldings @ 60 and @ 10
    Mash at 152F for 60 minutes
    Sparge with 170 F for 45 minutes
    5 gallon batch
    Ferment @ 62-64 F for 3 weeks
    Rack to secondary and add 4-6 oz of home made white oak sticks toasted medium to charred for 1 month then bottle

    I make this once a year and it really does not come around for 6 months after bottling.

    Happy brewing.

    How do you find the biscuit sits in an IPA? I've got 500g at home that I wanted to stick in a brew but thought it might be a bit wasted behind a load of hops.

    Well, I can be one of those odd Brewers that like the malt taste in a ipa.
    The Belgian biscuit malt in the small quantity adds a bit of mouth feel and taste. The hops are not lost or overpowered by the malt at all. I have used .5 K in a 18 L brew where it was too much and did tone down the hops.
    Of course , that's my taste.

    I should note that the yeast slurry also smells quite hoppy and adds to the brew vs using a fresh packet of yeast.

    Hope that helps
