Not a book, but a nice read for some old recipes

Above is a link to some old school recipes that I would like to share. Lots of invert used in those days.

Has anyone made any beer from this site? If so, which one and how did it turn out?

Ron Pattinson is an authority on historic beers. Does his homework.

Agreed.

Has a load of books and ebooks with even more recipes as well.

Biggest bugbear I've seen is with the attenuation. Although I think the Mangrove Jacks Newcastle Dark Ale/whatever-they-renamed-it-as is a suitably poor attenuator for some of those recipes.

I brewed up the recent post of the 1954 Tennant's Gold Label recipe, made my own invert 1 and ended up with an OG of 1.110.
3 hour boil too, long brew session!

Very anxious to see how it turns out.

I have made his Adnam's 1914 Mild before, was a very nice beer despite being heavy on the Invert Sugar...about 14% IIRC.
