I entered an Irish Ale more for the feedback than anything, and it managed a 4th which I'm pretty happy about. Onward & upward.

Ah yes. well down the table alas. Nevermind, Beerfest is coming soon and I don't have to worry about the nats :) On a positive note, two beers in the high nineties is an improvement on my last two entries. Haven't got the judges notes yet but looking forward to some feedback.

For those in Victoria there are two comps in the new year:

BeerFest (Feb at the famous Grandridge Brewery) and Oktoberfest which is in March.

Any chance of your mild recipe or some hints? I had one go using the MAH recipe but it was my second all grain and consequently I think I stuffed the mash temp, it came down to 1.007, ended up very dry which let the minerally flavour of the 1028 yeast come through too strongly. I see you used 1275 which is my favourite ale yeast, what grain bill and mash schedule did you go for?

Cheers
Simon

3300g Pale Ale Malt (Fawcett's Maris Otter)
250g Chocolate Malt (Fawcett's)
250g Crystal Malt (Joe Whites)

Mashed at 65 degrees C for 90 mins

Boiled for 90 mins - added:
25g Goldings pellets (4.5 Alpha) start of boil
225g Golden Syrup (Tate & Lyle) start of boil
1/2 tablet Irish Moss - last 5 mins
2 plugs (28g) Goldings hop plugs end of boil

Adjusted volume with (boiled) water to 1032

The yeast was taken from a previous brew, which was pitched with Wyeast Thames Valley, which still hadn't got going at all after 17 hours, so I re-oxygenated it and chucked in a safale S-04, so I don't really know which of the two fermented it, and hence I don't really know what yeast strain went into this one. Fermented at around 18 C.
