Okay - brewing this tomorrow:

79%Maris Otter
8% Crystal (60L - it's all I have)
5% Munich I Malt
3.5% Chocolate Malt
1.5% Carafa III
3% Black Malt

I am cold-steeping the black malt and half the chocolate malt and will add the strained liquid 15 minutes before the end of the boil.


Centennial 30IBU @ 90
Northern Brewer 14IBU @ 15

Irish Moss (1tsp) @ 20

Will also treat the water with a little Calcium Chloride.

Fermenting with WLP004 Irish Ale Yeast @ 18C

This is based on a Nogne Porter recipe, which I then played with a little bit. Looking forward to brewing it! Plus my brew fridge is now built and working ; )

Finished school run to find I was at strike temp - mash underway ; )

Kids finally asleep - rolling boil and 90 min hops added.

---------

All done. Bit of a problem at the end, as I realised once it had been chilled that I hadn't added the stuff I had cold-steeped! I boiled it up separately on the stove for 10 minutes, then put that in the FV before emptying the boiler. Warmed the yeast up a bit, but didnt realise how hot the wort was (turned out to be 26.5C). The brew fridge got it down to 18C overnight, but just hope I didn't shock the yeast I spent so long nurturing in my starter. I warmed it up quickly using a water bath but don't know what temp it was at.

Good brew day though - enjoyed it!

Bit of a nightmare bottling this tonight as for some reason the bottling stick started blowing air into the wort every time I primed!! Sorted it, but there were a fair few squirts went through - hopefully no cardboard flavours once it's sorted.

Also ended up with less in the FV than I expected and had already made my priming solution (equivalent to 112g per 5 gallons!!) so left a bit more airspace in the bottle to try and compensate. Hopefully will work out anyway.

First impressions from the FV are good, although I am picking up some sliced green apple, I think. Looking forward to bringing some to next meeting ; ) Fermentation Ended at 1014.
