Elwood's Best Bitter

This recipe is named after my paternal grandfather Elwood. My grandfather was an amazing man. He was a true life DIYer. He lived until 92 years old and passed away about 4 years ago now. I learned a great deal about cooking, grilling and baking from him. He is one of the reasons I have taken to so many home crafted hobbies (brewing, pickling, curing, smoking, etc.). My grandfather liked a good beer or a good Scotch. I decided I wanted to make a mellow yet flavorful beer in his honor and I decided upon a Best Bitter.

Recipe: US 2 Row, Crystal 120, Honey Malt, Brown Malt, US-05 (by accident wanted US-04), Fuggle at 60, Goldings at 20 and 1 min.
