The added beers are mostly Mild Ales, where the numbers have been boosted by adding pale versions of the weakest three. Which is interesting, because it tells us that the standard versions were now dark. Quite a change from 1888.
All the beers are weaker than in 1888. In the case of the Mild Ales, the difference is about 7º. The fall is less in the other beers: 3º for the Pale Ales, 2º for the Stout. The rate of attenuation, on the other hand, has increased in every beer except PA. Which was already pretty high to start with. Leaving many beers close to their 1888 ABV.
The hopping rates are also universally lower. Only about 0.5 lb per quarter (336 lbs) of malt in the case of the weakest Mild. But 5 lbs per quarter for PA, a reduction of almost a third.
