My first attempt at an 80 shilling type beer has been a bit disappointing, possibly due to the replacement malts that I had to use.. and it seems to be a beer that really needs mixed gas.. not doing so well on CO2..

.. it’s drinkable, there are the sort of caramel notes you might expect but they are far too subtle.. might have been better with marris otter but there was none in stock at the brewstore..

..deciding whether or not to switch recipes before I place my order this evening for the first brew of 2021.
