Roger Protz's description: "An astonishing complex beer for its gavity, fine for drinking on its own, or with well-flavoured food. A multi-layered delight of malt and hops, and a deep, intense finish, with hop and ripening fruit notes.
Note: for a partial mash recipe, replace the pale malt with 2,000gm of diastatic malt extract such as Edme DMS.
Mash pale, crystal, and flaked maize. Single infusion mash, 65 C, 90 minutes.
Boil 2 hours. Add invert sugar and target hops to boil, then follow schedule listed above.
