Any chance the brewer would post that recipe from last night? It was very tasty!

Sorry it took so long. I am new to the site and decided to finally get a login. The recipe I used is a modification to the Maltose Falcons recipe found on there site.

Batch Size was 12 gallons at 70% efficiency:

27lbs British Pale Ale Malt
2lbs 5.5oz Toasted Oats (Toasted at 325F until slightly darker in color)
1lbs 3oz White Wheat Malt
1lbs 3oz Crystal 60
12.5oz Special B
4.5oz Carafa II
Mashed started at 155F for 60min

Boiled for 60min

In Boil:
1oz Bravo Hops (14.2AA) for 60mins, 20IBUs
6.25oz Raisins Boiled for 60mins (Soaked in spiced rum overnight)

Yeast:
British Ale Yeast
Fermented at 68F

Started at 1.068 on 11/10/12 (Goal was 1.072 but had sparge issue that effected overall extraction)
Kegged at 1.011 on 11/20/12

At kegging added spices: (Amount is for 5 gallon keg)
1/2tsp Cinnamon
1/4tsp Ginger
1/4tsp Vanilla Extract
Soaked in 1/4cup spiced rum overnight

For anyone who decides to make this beer:

1) Toasting the oats takes longer than you might think - be prepared. I think it took an hour for me with a half pound per cookie sheet (two hours total)

2) Don't miss this part "Goal was 1.072 but had sparge issue that effected overall extraction". I did not add rice hulls and the absortion rate was HUGE. I could not recirculate and it took me over 90 minutes to extract what wort I could. I ended up backflowing into the mash tun 3-4 times to clear a stuck sparge. Probably a 70% efficiency when I generally see ~85%.

I want to try this recipe and have a few questions. Will that grain bill work in a keggle or will I need to brew two 5 gallon batches? Has anyone measure how much rice hulls they used?

Also, Kent has the following that will be available, which British Pale Ale Malt was used in this recipe?
- Thomas Fawcett Maris Otter Pale Ale
- Thomas Fawcett Optic Pale Ale
- Pauls Mild Ale

Thanks!

I did it this year and handed out for the holidays. While it did not come out as good as Spartans, I keep hearing from people who want more.

1) I did not use rice hulls - You will want to. I couldn't tell you how much as I seldom ever use them
2) I used a 70q cooler for a mash tun and made a 12g batch. Your efficiency will tell you how much grain you need and there are a few websites that can you you determine the maximum grain you can mash in a keggle. This did not seem too much for me, but the addition of the hulls take up space too.
3) I used Maris Otter.
4) I also used a lot more spiced rum and raisins as well as used candied ginger instead of dry, Cinn Sticks instead of powder.
