i noticed theres not much action in the kitchen ->recipe&ingredients forums
so in the interest of good recipe swapping.
ill show you mine if you show me yours.

heres a robust porter thats bloody lovely
3 kg imc pale ale malt
1 kg munich malt
350 g cara aroma
170 g black malt
MASH 68C 1.5 hours
78c sparge 1.5 hours

90 min boil
30 ibu goldings 60 mins
1 oz goldings 10 mins
1 oz goldings 5 mins

london ale 1028 at 20c

this is properly the most black malt you should use or use 230 g choc malt for brown porter.iam not near my recipes at the moment and cant remember exactly the gravities but its for 20l with 75% efficency so 1.053 O.G

and heres a really tasty and potent pale ale with awesome drinkabilty

4.5 KG a.m.c PALE MALT
450 CARA MUNICH
340 CARA PILS
225 MUNICH
125 WHEAT
mash 66c 1.5 hours
78c sparge 1.5 hours

39 g cascade plugs 60 mins 35 IBU
14 g cascade plug 15 mins
14 g cascade plug 10 mins
28 g 5 mins
28 g 1 min

wyeast american II 1272

edit: this is for roughly 23 litres at o.g 1.056 at 75% effiency.
i think it is very important to be over 5% this seems to balance it out wickedly and gives it the complexity.

now show us yours. any questions on mine please post. if you want some tasting notes maybe type them out another nite anyway these are properly two of my best.

cheers jayse

My second shot at an ordinary bitter although I think its migrated to a special bitter now.

3.5kg Pale Malt
200g Crystal 120
200g Wheat Malt

30g Northern Brewer (pellets) @ 60 mins (35IBU)
28g E.Kent Goldings @ 10min
28g E.Kent Goldings @ 5 mins

Wyeast 1099 Whitbread Ale

Ended up with 23L @ 1.042

Still in secondary at the moment so fingers crossed it comes out alright. Did a previous version minus the wheat and with much less E.Kent not a bad beer but not bitter enough (boil was split into 3 pots for that one...). Still getting my all grain techniques sorted so I shall see if this is a step up. Also have a primary full of Jayse's LCPA above bubbling away, that is looking pretty tasty.

lovely work jasony your bitter sounds very similar to some i have done exept i always go for a bit higher o.g.
as for the lcpa that rocks.my last four have used pale ale malt instead of the amc pale malt so i have used more wheat and less crystal.still to early to tell how they compare though.but so far i think that recipe above is my best a.p.a.
