Hi Ken,
According to my info Golden Promise is the go with some British crystal and some Belgian Aromatic.
Alc BV 4.4%
IBU 33
Fuggles and Ekg for bittering
EKG flavour addition
Styrian Golding for Aroma
Yeast WY 1028 London Ale

Hope this helps - sounds like a nice drop!
Cheers

Ken,
I believe Melanoidan is a substitute for Belgian Aromatic.

Hi Dicko,
Where did you get the ABV from?
I know the bottled product is only 4.1%, as I've had a few.
This makes it a bit more of a challenge for GMK.

A lovely beer and one of my all-time favourites.

Rgds,
Pete

GMK, here is recipe from BYOBRAAH.

For 80% efficiency and 23 litres

OG 1042
IBU35
FG 1009
Colour 10EBC/6 SRM
ABV 4.4%

4.28kg Golden Promise
39g Styrian Goldings (90 minutes)
32g Fuggles (90 minutes)

You would have to adjust according to efficiency and AA% of your hops.

At one stage here in Adelaide at the Floccs one of the more affluent brewers brought along a bottle of very fresh TTL and it really did live up to all the praise.

It has a far more complex flavour than you would ecpect from just GP on its own [not saying that here is anything else mind you].

Speculation ::::::::::::::::::::::

Take 2 litres of first runnings and boil them down to 1 litre and add them into the boil -- do it with 4 if you have a large enough pot to boil it down

Stick with the hops as TDA has indicated but don't go too high because it is malt balanced.

As for yeast WLP 005 would work well.

Steve.

Taylor's beers, Landlord in particular, behave completely unlike any other beer in the cellar (undergoing an extraordinarily vigorous secondary fermentation in the cask) and require very different handling. This would lead me to believe that Taylors have their own unique yeast strain contributing much of their distinctive flavour, and their website backs this up.

Taylor's website confirms that they use 100% Golden Promise malt. (Presumably from Fawcetts). Taylors colour their dark beers with caramel. I'd be very suprised if they use any character malts at all, and certainly not nasty foreign imports like Belgian Aromatic - the colour of Landlord is consistent with straight Pale Ale Malt. Apparently they do use a little crystal & amber, but I would think that would go mostly in Best Bitter (& Porter), rather than Golden Best & Landlord.

I've never consumed much Landlord in the bottle, but the real version (of which I have consumed considerable quantities) is distinctly hoppy, without being identifiable as any one particular character hop. Taylors website says "The traditional varieties have remained unchanged for over 70 years to produce classic aromas on the beers - as beer used to taste.", which (if true) would seem to rule out Styrian Goldings. The website confirms that the last addition of hops is in the hop-back with the hot wort dropped on top (a favorite method amongst the more traditional old family breweries). Landlord is definitely not dry hopped (it would be very messy in the cellar if it was).

FWIW, the cask version has an OG of 1042 and an ABV of 4.3% (though it always gives an impression of being stronger than that). The cask beer is primed with sugar.

You can be sure they use the absolute best quality everything - they can afford to (their beers are always top quality but notoriously expensive).

Hi Peter Wadey,
All the info in my above post came from "beer captured"
For a HB recipe it is probably pretty close.

Hi Sean,
The cask beer you describe sounds fantastic but probably difficult to reproduce a genuine sample at home due to secret yeasts/ingredients, cask equipment etc.

GMK,
Let us know how it all goes,

Cheers

I'm sure there are lots of commercial brewers who would love to reproduce Landlord - after all, it's won Champion Beer of Britain no less than four times and is a consistent good seller despite its high price. (And, having tasted a sample from the cask that won in 1999, I can assure you it was a well deserved and clear winner.)

I realise this doesn't help Ken, but ..

I had a bottle of this recently, and didn't realise till i got it home that it was 2 weeks past it's "best by" date.

It tasted incredibly fresh and hoppy with loads of aroma. A fantastic beer, whatever the recipe.

Post back here with your results Ken, as I'd be interested to brew this also one day.

That is one thing I love about Landlord, the consistancy. I've never seen it sold anywhere that didnt keep their beer in top quality. That said I've generally only tried it at well known real ale pubs, or festivals.

It's a pretty safe bet just about anywhere - pubs that bother with it, but serve it badly are few & far between.

Ken, I have a Landlord(ish) beer - from the Beer Captured source material, roughly - waiting to be bottled.

We will have to organise a tasting session in a little while :)

Ahhh!
Dicko, I think I've been there!
From memory the gravities are for the HB recipes provided, not the actual beers. Something for future reference.

All the best,
Pete

Ok - I had 2 recipes - one with all Golden Promise and one that had
95 % Golden promise
2 % melaniodan...
1% Crystal 150
2% CaraMunich
Hops Styrian, Fuggles, Styrian and EKG to 35 IBUs

After trying the original and comparing it to mine - before the infection showed up - took 5-6 months.
It was not that close.

Next i will do all Golden Promise.

Hope This Helps
