Great recipe, and it's came at the right time as I am about to brew a mild. I just have one small comment to make - here in the UK we would generally have a 1:1 Cl to SO4 ratio in the brewing water when brewing a mild. A matter of taste I guess as our milds would hardly have any bitterness accentuation.

Thanks for the comment chastuck! I did go back and forth with the Cl:S04 ratio but eventually went with 1:2 as in the recipe to make the hops just a bit more 'bright' or 'sharp' if that's the word. The difference is very subtle, especially given that EKG hops are not anywhere near as aggressive as American ones. A matter of taste you like said!

Cheers,

Kal

A cut & paste typo - now removed! Thanks for catching that.

I have brewed two 10 gallon batches of this mild and it is excellent! If you are after a easy drinking English flavour I would look no further.

My two cents on water profiles. I have done one batch with a balanced profile and one batch with a hoppy 1:2 ratio of Cl:SO4. I used Thames Valley yeast in both, my personal favourite English yeast strain. This is a yeast which emphasizes the malt character in a beer. When I did the balanced water profile the nuttiness of the Maris Otter was very forward and I almost thought it needed to be more bitter. I am drinking the 1:2 ratio of Cl:SO4 and now the Maris Otter is not as apparent. Note both beers were served on beer gas, low carbonation.

My recommendation would be to tend towards a "slightly hoppy" water profile of about 3:4 Ca:SO4 to enjoy that Maris Otter flavour without going over the top with it.

Anyway Kal thanks for the recipe!

Excellent DeNomad - Glad you liked it and thanks for the feedback! Agreed that a balanced ratio doesn't really work with this beer - I've always gone with my "hoppy lite" numbers here: http://www.theelectricbrewery.com/water-adjustment?page=3

Cheers!

Working on this recipe for brewing in November. Thoughts on adding the 4 oz Black Patent Malt only during sparge instead of mashing?

You can do that, but it's only 2% of the grist so I doubt it'll make any difference. I only add highly roasted malt at the start of sparge for my Dry Irish Stout as it's 10%.

Try both ways and see!
