Be careful when converting all-grain recipes to extract recipes that use a concentrated wort boil. Remember, hop utilization decreases with concentrated wort boils. While a 60 to 90 minute boil of an all-grain recipe may get 30% utilization, the same boiling time of 6 lbs. (2.7 kg.) of extract boiled in 2 gallons (7.6 l.) of water will result in a 23% utilization. Do a little math and you will realize the necessity of adding 25% more hops to have the same contribution to bitterness.
Likewise, if extract brewers wish to convert their boiling procedures to full wort boils, the reverse of this principle applies; you need to consider reducing bittering hops by 25%.
Converting from a concentrated wort boil to a full wort boil (or vice versa) and substituting hop pellets for whole hops (or vice versa) can lead to as much as a 30 to 40% difference in the amount of bittering hops called for in a recipe in order to match what the recipe formulator intended. That's quite startling if you've never considered it before.*

Amber Ale
Another original House Recipe. This amber is quite big. Alcoholic content in excess of 6% w/w and a malt back-bone for support. Finishes with notes of citrus from the classic North West Cascade hops. Not just another session beer. Available with original Muntons dry yeast or WLP011 liquid (recommended).

  Positive Perspective Porter
Possibly our best 'House Recipe'. Designed as a 'robust' porter with a 'little bit more'. Chocolate malt and Tettnanger hops give a very drinkable profile, while the black patent reminds you it is definitely an English brew. Open one and change your perspective. Works well with either yeast option (Muntons dry or WLP005 British Ale liquid).
