Brew #68: Mole Gap Mild

March 27, 2014

Mashing high, adding some liquorice and smoked malt and using the new Mangrove Jack’s Newcastle Dark Ale dry yeast. Almost everything went in except the kitchen sink. Maltster had run out of pale ale so had to put the Burton Ale on the back-burner for a week or so. The running season has started at full force (3x 6.5km + hill training /week) so some lower gravity energy drink is needed in order to rehydrate and invigorate.
