5.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) UK (3.0 SRM) Grain 42.7 %

2.00 lb Wheat Malt, Ger (2.0 SRM) Grain 17.1 %

1.50 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 12.8 %

1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 8.5 %

1.00 lb Munich Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain 8.5 %

2.00 oz Black (Patent) Malt (500.0 SRM) Grain 1.7 %

2.00 oz Crystal [4.40%] (60 min) Hops 30.5 IBU

0.50 oz Crystal [4.40%] (30 min) Hops 5.9 IBU

0.50 oz Crystal [4.40%] (15 min) Hops 3.8 IBU

1.00 oz Crystal [3.50%] (3 min) Hops 1.5 IBU

1.00 oz Crystal [4.40%] (Dry Hop)

British Ale II (Wyeast Labs #1335)Yeast (I use a big starter or a pint of slurry)

Assuming 70% effeciency:

OG=1.059

FG=1.014

I mashed this sucker at 154 F for a nice medium bodied beer. Simple single infusion mash with a mash out and batch sparge. Easy.

Boil and add hops at times specified, chill and pitch yeast. Transfer to secondary once fermentation is complete and dry hop for 2-weeks with crystal hops.

Prime bottles with 1 1/4 cup DME for a smooth, rich mouthfeel.

Really, the only thing I might change about this beer is the 1.5 lbs of US 2-row. I just happened to have that around the house so I used it. Just go with Brittish 2-row for the whole grist if you want.
