Found it! I haven’t brewed it since I started building recipe sheets so the info is a bit sparse. This was for a 23 litre batch, ABV was 4.75%. I probably wouldn’t use US-05 next time so feel free to sub the yeast. Also, Magnum doesn’t seem as high on AA this year do you’ll need a little more than in the recipe to achieve the IBUs.H...could you please point me in the direction of your Plum Porter recipe.
Good grief, you’ve got a memory! That was the previous version…Thanks H. I may be wrong but did you ever make one with Special B malt and not with roasted wheat or barley?
I watched a YT video yesterday about that brewery on the Craft Beer channel. Keeping cask ale alive and so on. Looked amazing. What a place!Hook Norton Hooky Amber Ale (3.5%)View attachment 55705
I was going for a walk and suddenly felt like a pint. Hook Norton Hooky is described as an Amber Ale (I.e. A bitter) the beer itself is very Malty with just a hint of bitterness. Temperature wise it’s perfect cellar temperature very light carbonation an example of why a properly kept case ale is very hard to beat.
Had a couple of pints of that in the Jerusalem Tavern in Clerkenwell last night. V good. Had a sip of their Plum Porter too - also delicious but not quite right for the occasion.
