Assuming the bale was kept sealed at 8oC I reckon the adjusted AA is about 4.5% this means the hop charge needs...

Re: Bramling X over (The "Test Brew")

Re: The "Test Brew"

Ok fellas here is a recipe suggestion, I've tried to keep it as simple as possible. I have not gone for any dry hopping as some may be unable to do this.
