Im somewhat confused by Old Peculier and the old style ale.  In most places I have read Old ALes are ales that are brewed and aged but in some places I've read said they are brewed in an "old style" (like an Alt).  And is Old Peculier an old ale or an English Strong?

...I used 4oz of light molasses.  If I brewed this again, I would use treacle.  It is easy to have molasses overpower the beer...

If you do use treacle next time, cut back on the amount versus the amount of molasses you used.  I think treacle syrup  would potentially overpower the beer more than regular molasses would.
That's good to know. I thought it was the opposite.

Just used it for the first time tonight. Talk about a game changer - my previous worm drive type stuffer would do 2 kg in about 10 minutes, with LOUD noise. This makes no noise and I had stuffed 4 meters of Apfelbratwurst* in, no kidding, 2 minutes. With time to stop and change some things around.
After stuffing only my third batch of sausages with my meat grinder, I may be looking into getting a stuffer.  I also realized that most people have more patience than I do.

Here is the recipe that I found.  It was an extract kit that is supposed to be an Old Peculier Clone(I dont remember where I got it from). The measurements of the specialty grains were given in cups not by weight.

6lbs Dark dry malt extract
1 Cup Chocolate Malt
3 Cups Crystal 60 L
1 Cup Roasted Barley

2 oz Progress Pellets  45 min
.5 oz Fuggle Plugs 2 minutes

4 – 8 oz Molasses End of boil

Danstar Windsor yeast

I used 4oz of light molasses.  If I brewed this again, I would use treacle.  It is easy to have molasses overpower the beer.  Like I said, I dont remember how close it was to Old Peculier, and I dont know enough to tell if its going to be close by looking at the recipe but I'm sure others can.   I hope this helps. If you do find a recipe that works please post it. I would like to brew an old peculier clone but I unfortunately dont have the time for the beers i already have lined up in my mind to brew. Summer may be over before I get to brew my summer ale.

Its been a long time since I've had it too.  The second batch I brewed was a clone of it.  I dont remember how close it was to the original but I do remember it came out great.  I will look for the recipe when I get home and post it if I can find it. I know I used molasses and the yeast was maybe WLP013 London Ale Yeast.  I've been meaning to rebrew it or brew another version for years now.  If you do brew it, please update this post.

Ingredients / Re: I think my hops are drowning
« on: June 09, 2012, 02:36:25 PM »
I will be the first to admit I don't tend to my hops like I should and I'm not anexpert.  Some of my early hops brown on the edges.  I couldn't tell you if its good bad or neither but itdoesnt seem to happen to all of them  and I usuallyn get plentyn to harvest. You siad your hops are inpots, do you have enough drainage? They may be drowning since you had a  lot of rain and the soil could be saturated.  My hops in pots never grew well and I didn't get any cones in the first year. You really need large pots. Some people have recomended rain barrels or garbage cans.

I'm going to add cheese too. I think dicing it and then freezing the cheeze and adding it to the mixing phase right before going into the stuffer would work best.
I didnt think about freezing the cheese.

Last night I did 7 kg of sausage, 3.5 kg of basil/tomato/chicken and 3.5 kg of mango/chile/cilantro/chicken. Basil tomato was just too salty. Gonna try it one more time with 1/3 less salt, but mango chicken is one of our favorites.
These both sound good. Did you add fat? I'm planning on making chicken sausage for the first time tomorrow morning with 4 or 5lbs of breast from Costco that I have.  From what I have heard, I was wondering it will be too dry and I should add fat...or dark meat....or skin...or something.
