Just that I'm currently researching/writing about Mild Ale for my next book but one. Including writing loads of recipes (67 so far). The Mild recipes are giving me some more insight into its colour.
For the purposes of the book, I only need to write the recipes for a small selection of the brewing records I have. To find out what all the the beers looked like, I'd need to run the lot through my brewing software. As I try not to waste my time on research without a good reason, I might not bother. Hence asking if you're interested.
Now I think of it, there is a damn good reason for me to go ahead. It will fit really well in that putative book. Well, not quite so putative. It is 32,000 words. Mostly recipes.
I take that back. I don't need your approval. I can see the point. Why on earth didn't I see that immediately? Mild colour is a topic that's occupied my every waking thought for two decades.
Expect more on this topic. Whether you like it or not.
One teaser. One Mild recipe I have crunched through BeerSmith came out at 22.8 SRM. Properly dark brown. A typical Dark Mild colour. All from malt. No sugar to muddy the waters.
