Crystal Malt 350g

Fuggle 60 mins 15g (First Wort Hops)
Golding 60 mins 13g (First Wort Hops)
Fuggle 10 mins 9g

Final Volume: 12 Litres
Original Gravity: 1.043
Final Gravity: 1.010
Alcohol Content: 4.3% ABV (I’m making it with 3 extra Litres, it should be 5.7%)
Total Liquor: 16.6 Litres
Bitterness: 33 EBU
Colour: 36 EBC

After a quick temperature and hydro check I’ve actually come the closest I’ve ever been to getting the correct SG and volume in the FV πŸ™‚
On top of what Beer Engine said my total Liquor would be I added 1.5 Litres for Hop and trub losses, maybe I’ve cracked it!
It seems the real beer doesn’t exist any longer in its bottled form, as from what I can gather they only cask their ales now, no website either but here’s some info

**Bottled 10/06/2009, tasted quite sweet.
