1987 Boddington's ELM

Postby Good Ed » Sat Apr 05, 2014 11:33

This is up for tomorrow hopefully, I don't have my full clearance certificate yet ;)

From Ron Pattinson's blog and one of three Boddies Milds, ELM , Oldham Mild and Mild

So this is what I have come up with. 70% efficiency is based on the last time using Halcyon although I may up it a bit. I asked Brewlab if they carry a Boddingtons yeast (Wyeast 1318 I believe), they don't do it but Alison recommended a Bass Mild yeast, so that's that. Invert sugar guide is here courtesy of Kristen England (Ron's partner in crime). No 1 is easy to make but I have a recipe with No 3 coming up which will be a bit more of a slog.

OG 1034; FG 1008ish; ABV 3.67%ish; EBC 55 (adjust with caramel); IBU 14 (Tinseth)
70% efficiency 23L brewlength

2940g Halcyon 83.5%
278g Crystal 7.9%
243g Invert Sugar No 1 6.9%
60g Chocolate 1.7% (I only have pale choc so will double up)

18g EKG 6.57%AA 90mins 14.1 IBU (Tinseth)

Mash 68C for 120mins; Boil 90mins

Water South Staffs; CaCO3 ~ 135ppm and adjust Ca to 150ppm with CaCl

Yeast Bass Mild (from the Tower brewery in Tadcaster ??, I suppose that's why it is a right top cropper)

Here's to the man who drinks strong ale,
and goes to bed quite mellow.
Lives as he ought to live,
and dies a jolly good fellow.

Oh if you were from Oldham you wouldn't mention Boddingtons and Oldham Brewery in the same breath. :evil: :evil:

Boddingtons 1987 you are taking me right back to 6th form and friday register in the Stamford Arms Altrincham :lol:

My brewing partner has been nagging me to find the Oldham Brewery mild cheers for the link.

Do you remember what it tasted like

This is the Boddies version of the Oldham Brewery one, but probably very similar

I never had OB mild always the Boddies Bitter but my mate who remebers OB mild from the 60's said that the Boddies one was nothing like the original. I will have a look at it I think I may do it for him next brew. :D

Cheers

caramel mixed with some wort to increase the colour to 55EBC added with 20min to go, mucky stuff, just like tar

Image

ended up with 22L at 1038 and liquored back to 1035
