The fermentation schedule given by the brewer was quite convoluted, but Jamil recommended to ferment at 17C, raise to 20C over the course of fermentation. Mash at 148F for 60min *Jamil clarified that he recommended Simpson's British Dark Crystal which is available from Northern Brewer. Discussion notes: Recommended changes include: use a no sparge mash, use the Simpson's Dark Crystal, and ferment at 17C to 20C.
