My First mild.
Two nights ago I brewed a batch of what I hope will be a Mild beer. I used 6.6 pounds of light LME. I am going to have to edit this post when I get home to tell you the exact hop and yeast I used. I used 1/2 lb of black patent barley seeped in 1 1/2 gallons of water at about 155 for half an hour. I then added the LME and Another gallon of water, brought that to a boil added the hops and let that boil for 45 min. I then added the yeast I stared that morning aerated it and moved it to the fermented. I am very excited about this batch I love drinking beer but I have often wished I could have more without getting tipsy or out right drunk. If this works well I will be making a lot of mild beers.
