This is my Go To Beer

by Toneus

If I have a visitor who's not sure which beer they would like to taste, this is the first one poured. It's a hit every time.

Great Recipe

by Brewdog

I brewed 10 gallons of this.
It's great. Super clear. Nice lacy head, nice color, nice aroma, good everything.
Next time I'll use some liquid yeast. It's pretty dry. Probably be good with Burton Ale yeast or just some Notty's.
Thanks for sharing.

This beer turned out awesome!

by mtemple

Scaled recipe to 5gal because that's the size of my gear.

This has become my new default. I've brewed it twice so far, and both times it has turned out amazingly. Note: I keg condition for at least two weeks longer than most of my other ales. As in all things beer -- your patience WILL be rewarded. Also, I slightly under-carbonate it, and it removes a tiny bit of bite, making it more enjoyable (to my palate) than the original -- although whenever passing through ATL, I always stop off at the Sweetwater 420 pub just to make sure...

Excellent recipe

by neckbeardbrewing

Scaled down to 2 gallons and did BIAB to test the recipe out. Very impressed with this. Compared it against a fresh sample of the beer and they are VERY similar. Highly recommend this one.

My First All Grain Brew

by bzalez

This will be my go to recipe. It turned out clear, well carbonated, with perfect aroma and taste. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
I scaled down to 6.5 gal and used 1056 yeast. As a first time brewer I wanted to ensure I had plenty left for carbonation.
Thanks Again. BH55
