Apocalypse, Falls City, Akasha, and Against the Grain all make a Ky Common in Louisville. Against the Grain uses a sour mash. I'm guessing that Common wasn't a sour mash. Oertel's 92 was a main beer around Lou. I remember giving my mom a taste of New Castle. She said,"that tastes just like Oertel's 92." I think Common was like that. Session strength at 4%-4.5%. I think the black malt was added only for ph adjustment, could be wrong. I've researched it and tried all of them. I've not brewed one yet. I think 1450 might add a nice body to a Common. I think, for me, the mouth feel is what is lacking in all of these that I've tried. Possibly 1450 could add what is missing.
