Being that it's near impossible to find a historical recipe for burton dark ale, this is my best guess based on my reading and from Burton Bridge Brewery's Tickle Brain burton ale. Burton ale historically used a significant amount of Amber malt. The crystal malt is a contemporary addition.

This is a recipe that we are tentatively going to brew in the March/April timeframe along with a Rye porter for a side to side comparison. Due to space constraints with mashtun sizes, I'm thinking of doing a mash with just the maris otter, amber and brown malt, and then steeping the caramel 120 and the chocolate malt in the runoff at 155 for about 30 minutes. Otherwise I would have to have a very thick mash and sparge like a madman! NOTE: I'm still working on the steps at this point. Hope ...

This will be a decoction mash. After the grains have been mashed in at 122F, I plan on pulling 10 qts of thick mash into a kettle. I'm going to do a short sacch rest before bringing the mash to a boil for 10-15 minutes. The mash will be returned to the mashtun until beta rest temp of 145 is reached. At the end of the beta rest I will pull off 5 qts of thick mash, do a short sacch rest, then bring it to a boil for another 10-15 minutes. This portion will be returned until alpha rest temp of 158 is reached. For mashout I will draw off approx a gallon of wort to the kettle and bring to a boil. That will be added back to the mashtun ending conversion. Conditioned bottles in back living room at 70F. Used Lalvin EC-1118 yeast rehydrated in the bottling bucket with 4.3 ounces of corn sugar boiled in 16 ounces of water.

We did this as part of a partigyle batch. Heated a total of 8 gallons to split between two igloo mashtuns (4 gallons per mash tun). mashed in 13.2 lbs of grain in each mash tun. Overshot target temp of 150, settled in at 152.2. Steeped the specialty grains separately with 6 qts of water @ 150 & rinsed with 4 qts of water. Wound up with more runoff than anticipated (nearly 7 gallons instead of 6.5) so we did a 90 minute boil instead of planned 60. In the end OG still came in close to target. Carbonation level is quite low considering I measured out too much corn sugar on bottling day. I wound up using about .5 oz more than I needed. First pour was still. No carbonation at all. I have since resorted to turning the bottles upside down and agitating the beer moderately in order to achieve a level of carbonation.

Mashed in 4 gallons of water at 170 degrees F, stabilized to strike temp of 153.5. Mashed for 60 minutes and sparged out with 5 gallons of 170 degree water. Approx 7.5 gallons of water in the boil. Had issues with timer on propane burner shutting off and having to reheat the kettle, and once had a boil off that put out the burner. Took a little over 2 hours to get 60 minutes of boil time. Cooled down to approx 78 degrees and poured off contents into primary fermentor. Pitched a one liter starter of Irish ale yeast and aerated well. Vigourous activity within eight hours of pitching starter. Continued strong fermentation through the first 36 hours and was fairly complete within 48. Took FG reading on day four after activity had ceased. Racking off to secondary on Oct 9 and adding vanilla bean infusion. Will leave in secondary for 2-1/2 weeks minimum and test at that time to determine flavor level for bottling.

Over heated strike water for mash. Let it cool to around 172 degrees before adding to mashtun. Mashed in grains and recorded strike temp of 156, above the desired 154. Mashed for 60 minutes and batch sparged with 5 gallons of 170 degree water. Collected approx 7-1/4 gallons of wort pre boil. Boiled for 60 minutes at a moderate boil. Actually started this batch after the vanilla porter, but due to complications with a new burner used for the porter, this batch finished first. Cooled the boiled wort down to approx 80 degrees with chiller and added to fermentation bucket. Aerated vigorously and pitched a one liter starter of WLP004 Irish Ale yeast. Recipe doesn't reflect the addition of lactose in the last five minutes of the boil or the subsequent gravity contribution. Because the lactose is an unfermentable sugar, apparent attenuation of the yeast is low compared to the vanilla porter batch. This will be racked off to secondary on Oct 9 and 5 ounces of coarsely ground sumatran

We split this recipe up into two batches. One batch I fermented the normal way with the lid and airlock on. The second batch, which will wind up being the berry weizen, I did an open fermentation for the first 36 hours. First impression was a marked difference in the yeast. I cultured up a slurry from a weizen we did back in March and kept it in the refrigerator. In that batch I noticed a lot of banana esters. The repitched slurry, however, had a very prominent clove character and no banana presence at all. should be interesting to see how the flavor changes in the finished product. Also, the batch with lid and airlock had pretty much completed ferementing after about 44 hours. The second batch, which I closed up the night before after 36 hours, was still percolating at a modest rate. I wonder if I'll get a lower FG as a result. Contrary to my past practice, I am not going to swirl the bottles during the conditioning phase to hellp the process along. I used about 6.5 oz of c

Not my finest hour of brewing but I think that the resulting beer is still going to be very tasty after an intial wort sampling post cool down. Hit pretty close to strike temp for my wheat protein rest at 121. Heated up 5 qts of water and added in. Only hit 139 where I thought I would be at single step infusion temp of 152. Oops. No problem, I'll do a 50-60-70 mash. Heated up some more water to raise up to 158, only got to 156. Drew off one gallon of wort and heated to 170 degrees for mashout. Did a stupid thing at that point and decided that, since I had 3.5 gallons of runoff and needed 4.5 for my boil, I just added one gallon of water to the brewpot instead of taking the time to heat another gallon or so of sparge water. Killed my final gravity, which should have been in the 1.056 range. wound up at 1.043 with my diluted wort. Cooled down to 75 F and pitched my starter slurry of weiheinstephan yeast and put in the fridge at a temp of 62F. Not quite how I pictured the day

Was supposed to be a mini batch initially. I heated 14 qts of water up to make strike temp. However, I overshot and added one qt of cold water to the mashtun to get temp down to 152.2. Again, when I heated sparge water, I overshot my temp of 170 and had to add about 2 qts of cold water to bring the temp down. So instead of having 3.8 gallons in the fermentor at an OG of 1.068 I wound up with 4.9 gallons at 1.052. Which is ok with me, the bittering ratio still comes out balanced and I will dry hop with a 1/4 ounce of citra in the secondary to amp up the flavor. Noticed activity in the airlock approx 8 hrs after pitching yeast. Vigorous activity for the next 24-36 hours, slowing down somewhat by Sunday evening. I will leave this in the primary for 2 weeks, then rack off to secondary and add 1/4 oz citra hops as a dry hop addition. Bottled with table sugar instead of corn sugar. Interested to see if using a different type of sugar makes a difference in the carbonation. So far it

Achieved desired strike temp on mash and held for 60 minutes. Mash became stuck for a short time. Had to ladle out a large portion of mash and add water to thin out and get the wort flowing again. Slowly added back in the remainder of the mash and continued sparging until approx. 6.5 gallons of wort had been run off. Steeped caramel and chocolate malts in the runoff from the mashtun for approximately 30 minutes. Achieved a nice dark brown color and a rich chocolatey aroma. Transferred to propane burner and brought to boil. Tossed in 1 oz of hops for 60 minutes. Put immersion chiller into brewkettle for last 10 minutes of boil, then brought the kettle to the sink and cooled down in approximately 5 minutes to 80 degrees. Poured wort off into primary bucket and aerated vigourously. Pitched 1 liter yeast starter and closed up the fermenter. Transferred the beer off to the secondary after 7 days and took a gravity sample. Came in at 1.018. A little higher than anticipated but no

Heated mash water to 170 degrees F and poured into mashtun. Mashed in 4# rye malt, 4# maris otter, 2# amber malt and 2# brown malt. Achieved mash temp of 157. Held for 60 minutes. Sparged with 5.0 gallons of water at 170 degrees F. Mash did get stuck briefly, but I was able to scoop out some of the mash and get the runoff going again. I may start using rice hulls in my mash to help with this problem. This beer did not finish out as low as I had calculated, so when I racked off to secondary, I boiled half a pound of table sugar in water. After it had cooled, I added it to the secondary with my maker's mark/oak chip solution that had been set aside for four weeks. We are planning on bottling this batch on June 15th, which will give it seven weeks in secondary. I anticipate a significant oaky flavor from the chips and a lot of vanilla tones from the bourbon. It will be interesting to see how all the individual flavors play out.
