TT Landlord mkII – I really wasn’t going to brew today… but I smacked the Wyeast 1469 yesterday with thoughts of building a bit bigger starter, then thought sod it as the pack states its a Pitchings worth, the pack is well swollen now.
I wanted to use Fuggles in the finish with Bobek but don’t have any to hand so Challenger it is!

Today, I shall mostly be making a Timothy Taylors Landlord 🙂 www.timothytaylor.co.uk

The recipe will be coming from the Graham Wheeler book.
12 litre brew length in my 15L mash tun with just a couple of additions to the recipe:
2% Crystal
10g Bobek @ Zero Minutes
Caramelise the first 2L runnings.
Apparently the Taylors spring water comes from Limestone country in the Yorkshire dales so I’ve added some Calcium Carbonate to the mash along with Gypsum

The Grain, Chalk and Gypsum:

Mashed in @ 66.8 C:

pH is around about right, maybe a little low:
Image
Hops prepared and Stacked in order of use, water treatment and a little yeast nutrient and Protafloc tablets:
Image
These are looking good:

Mash finished at 65 C, ran over 15mins to 105 minute mash:

Recirculating the first couple of litres:

First Batch Sparge, the big jug in the back ground has the 2 litres for caramelisation, second batch sparge stuck and took some prodding to get it to run off, I might sack the False bottom and make a copper manifold:

Boiling the heck out of the 2L:

Anyone for Toffee?? This stuff tastes yummy! This was added back to the boiler:

Pitching Whitelabs Edinburgh Ale yeast, 1 litre starter from a tube I’m splitting:

Round about right, give or take the odd point or two, which means my volumes were pretty much on target:

Not a bad one, breakfast and lunch had amongst it, the caramelisation took about 90 mins so that has slowed me down a touch, wort tastes pretty good with a good kick of Styrians (Bobek).

**Update** 19/09/09 – Had a sneaky sample from the trial jar, its down to its FG nicely and it taste, well… rather Landlordy 😉 Maybe lacking a bit of Crystal Malt or Dark Crystal, maybe worth adding a bit more next time. Time will tell when its fully matured.

**Update** Bottled 22/09/09 with 50g household sugar, bottled in Timothy Taylors bottles and I’ll be printing some labels like this:
… Subtle changes 😉
