I’m finally going to give an old ale a shot this Sat at our club’s brew day.

9 lb. German Pils (or two row or 6 row domestic)
12 oz. 60°L crystal
8 oz. Carapils dextrine malt
8 oz. dark brown sugar
6 oz. torrefied wheat
4 oz. Cane sugar (subs for 4 oz. Golden Syrup)
4 oz. black malt
chocolate malt

1 oz. Northern Brewer 8% 90 min
0.5 oz. Fuggle 15 min
0.5 oz. Fuggle 5 min
1 oz. Fuggle dry.

Munton’s Premium Gold yeast (3 pkgs)

1.25qts. per pound of grain

single step mash – what temp?

69% efficiency

any suggestions on fermentation temps?

Some of these ingredients may seem an odd size but we’re actually doing 15 gal.

If you have a choice, use the 2 row. Pils would be OK, I wouldn't personally use 6 row for this style.
LIfe begins at 60...1.060, that is.
