Based on an English Mild Ale, the ATF Lilliputian Ale is a low ABV beer with a warm nutty malt base. It has layers of gentle dark caramel sweetness with hints of caramelised fruit and toasted toffee, blended beautifully with a smooth roast character with hints of dark chocolate. The English yeast provides a pleasant light fruitiness and slight tartness.
Unlike its English grandparent it also has a pleasant mild orange citrus and floral hop character.
Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using one packet of Mangrove Jack's Liberty Bell yeast.
The grain bill for this recipe is under 4kg. It is recommended you consider using the Grainfather Micro Pipework, which has been designed for use with smaller grain bills.
