Jamil Z uses British pale, crystal, special roast and aromatic malt in his best bitter recipe. The aromatic is what I am questioning. Obviously, this is not traditional but I am wondering if anyone has tried the recipe and how it turned out. So far I have been very pleased with his recipes and I am inclined to stick to them, at least the first time.

Bitter is such a wide style, at least in it's home country, I think you could pretty much do what you want.

I have brewed it a couple times, I think the recipe is very good, but it is not one of my favorite styles. It won 1st place and scored 45.5 points in Raleigh NC last year if that is any indication.

I've used Aromatic in bitter and it worked well.

I've seen bitter recipes that used a portion of munich malt. Aromatic malt would serve some of the same purpose.

I am glad you asked this question. I am going to brew this on Thursday. I have aromatic malt, but no special roast. I am going to sub biscuit for the special roast, 3%.
