Let's Brew Wednesday - 1885 William Younger 60/-

Still a long way to go on our ascent of the Shilling Ales. Straight 60/-. Another beer which seems a bit for its price. It’s the strength of a London 1 shilling per gallon Ale. That is 54/- for a hogshead.

Apart from the difference in gravity, the hopping rates also aren’t the same. 6.5 lbs per quarter for H 60/-, 5 lbs for 60/-.

No surprise that three base malts graced the mash tun and nothing else. With just over a third from Scottish barley, the rest from foreign. There’s some of that weird “Pat.” Stuff again. 10 flgs then 4 flgs in the copper.

The hops were the same as in H 60/-: 1884 season Kent, Californian, Spalt and American.
