Hi,

Does anyone have an All Grain Recipe for Theakstons Old Peculiar that they can post here to share...

Will settle for a partial that i could then convert to All Grain....

Thanks in advance...

Does anyone know what the "peculiar" part of this recipe is?
Or was Theakston just a peculiar person?

Ken, here is the recipe from Wheeler and Protz's book, Brew Your Own British Real Ale At Home.

Grain bill is for 80% efficiency.

It's actually Peculier, and refers to an antiquated form of government or admistrative unit used in ye olde England, in this case the Peculier Court of Masham, now part of Yorkshire.

awrabest, stu

Did you ever get around to brewing this sucker GMK?

I'd be interested in the 'GMK adaptations' to the recipes and the results.

I have not done the All Grain yet.

But when i do i will add the juice of a lemon to the white sugar (or a 1/2 teaspoon of citric acid) - just cover the sugar with boiling water and boil on the burner for approx 10-15min - ie invert the sugar to it's amber brown - then pour in boiling water and add this at the start of the boil.

I have been doing this with the Partial Recipe - it comes up great - adds toffee/caramel to it.

Nice i should be sorting out my grain bill for it in a few weeks too!
will you use Fuggles....? i noticed in a 2-3 year old thread (maybe about IPA's) you mentioned you 'hate' Fuggles.. ha ha.
has your pallate changed at all since then..?

Cheers

Yes - i can handle Fuggles - i had to relent as alot of the English Ales/Recipes have them in it...

It has become a required taste....

One thing i will be doing is inverting the sugar with some citric acid/lemon juice by just covering the sugar with boiling water and boiling until it is beetroot red.
Will also add some dark brown sugar around 150gms.

If u have Promash - pm me with your e-mail address and i will e-mail you the recipe in promash.
