Old Peculier

Author/Submitted by:

    4.00 lb Dark malt extract
    0.50 lb Roast barley
    0.50 lb Crystal malt
    2.00 lb Dark brown sugar
    2.00 oz Fuggles hops
    5.00 Tablets

This recipe uses saccharin, but I will not use this in my beer; instead I may add brewer's licorice or lactose for sweetness. The amount of fermentables also seems low; I would add a pound or two of light extract to increase the gravity to the mid-fifties. The recipe also calls for priming with 3 ounces of black treacle, which is molasses. This seems low, and it also seems that different brands would contain different amounts of fermentable sugar. This recipe is for one of my favorite old ales---Old Peculiar. It comes from Dave Line's book Brewing Beers Like Those You Buy. Recipe By : Mike Fertsch
