    Hiya

    Eddie Gadd who used to work for Firkin and now owns Ramsgate Brewery gave me the recipe for a competition.

    I'll dig it out for you.

    I had a pint a month ago - it was entered in the competition at Nottingham. Nice, but the memory plays tricks. I had built it up in my mind's eye into the equivalent of brewing nectar - but to be fair, perhaps it just doesn't travel well (which is why all the Firkin pubs used to brew, I suppose) because I found it disappointing.

    Thanks for the recipe though - I shall try it in a couple of weeks (Belgian Pale first).

    seanipops - is Safale S-04 bog-standard Nottingham?

    Not an expert on yeast but I think they're two distinct strains.

    And the thing you really need to know about the Firkin pubs was that the brewing was extract based ;) . . . Using Muntons Cedarex 'B'

    Eddie, SO-4 is not bog standard Nottingham, they are seperate strains. Nottingham is much more bland and neutral, S04 can give fruity flavours

    I think that's true for the majority, but I'm pretty sure from something David Bruce wrote that there were a handful that were full grain.

    Ah, that looks fun. I remember DogBolter, at least I remember the first pint or two each evening.... Unfortunately this was during the period when I knew next to nothing about beer except that I liked drinking it.
    Now I'm tempted to make some, I think a few of my friends would enjoy a flashback to our ill spent youth.

    Nuggitmv, hope this helps. I don't know a grain recipe but you can buy the kit.

    Dogbolter hmmm... If you want 40 pints buy 2 of them as one kit only makes 24. I was told by using 2 lots but only making it to the 40 pint mark, would make it a little more better. You can get it from here http://www.leylandhomebrew.com/item1210.htm although i remember buying it from ebay once. :drink: and get :drunk: :cheers:
