Old Peculier

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Brewing

 Ingredients List

  • 4 lb Dark malt extract
  • 1/2 lb Roast barley
  • 1/2 lb Crystal malt
  • 2 lb Dark brown sugar
  • 2 oz Fuggles hops
  • 5 Tablets
  • Yeast
  • Saccharin


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
alesOld Peculiar. It comes from Dave Line's book Brewing Beers Like
Those You Buy.
