I only brew maybe 10 or so 2.5 gallon batches a year nowadays, but that's one malt I'd still consider buying by the sack. Get some good quality EKG's, stock up on invert syrups, start propping pitches of your fave English yeast strain(s), and you're in for a whole run of tasty brews.

I brew 12 three gallon batches a year. Five pounds of this and some specialty grains gives me the O G for my session beers making this bag last 11 months.

Any out of the ordinary procedures needed? Longer mash? Lower, or higher mash temperature? Thinner or thicker mash?

Nope. Like most British malt, it's made for single infusion

I've never brewed with this malt. Does this malt require a step mash?

Nope.  Few, if any, British malts need more than a single infusion.

Most British breweries are set up for single infusion. That's  what they do.

I just got 19 ozs (9 different varieties) of British hops to go along with the maris otter, from Annapolis homebrew supply.

I brew a fair amount of British ales, but I'm a little ashamed to admit that I haven't played with too many British hop varieties outside of EKG, Fuggle, Challenger, and Target. I'm interested to hear what other varieties you have and what you think of them.

Also, any idea what the harvest year of these hops are?  They have varieties that are hard to get elsewhere so I am interested. …but only if they’re fresh.
