Well it's been many months since i put on a brew, and it seems i've forgotten all the wonderful things i had in mind many months ago.

I want to do my own pale ale (not anything as hoppy as a IPA), without kit assistance, and have the following ingredients:

1.5kg Morgans Liquid Pale, and Extra Pale Malt
Loads of DME
Caramunich (500g)
Crystal Malt (300g)
1028 London Yeast
Hops: POR, Fuggles, Goldings, Cascade

never used fuggles or goldings, so i have no idea what flavour they add.

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

cheers

ok, now that sounds better!!

I only have 25 grams of Goldings. Using 20g 10 min, should i balance the rest with POR, maybe 10 grams at 60 min for bitterness, or even 20g of fuggles at 60 min? (never tried fuggles, so not sure of the result, but they have similar bitterness to goldings).

Using the POR will let you use less hop material. I "reckon" the Fuggles might be a better bittering match for the Goldings.

Does the Fugles have a higher AAU% rating??(than the Goldings)

I'd use the PoR for a bit of bitterness myself. The IBU in that second report is only 16.3, no reason to fear the PoR.

ok, just decided that if i'm going to use all this specialty grain, i may as well do a partial mash with 2 kg of pale malt grain i just picked up. I've heard it will taste a lot better.

With 2kg pale malt...
44.1 1.50 kg. Coopers LME - Light Australia 1.038 3
8.8 0.30 kg. Crystal 60L America 1.034 60

What would you suggest i use LME, 500 grams?
