•4 pounds, dark malt extract•1/2 pound, roast barley•1/2 pound, crystal malt•2 pounds, dark brown sugar•2 ounces, Fuggles hops•5 saccharin tablets•yeast
This recipe uses saccharin, but I will notuse this in my beer; instead I may addbrewer’s licorice or lactose for sweetness.The amount of fermentables also seemslow; I would add a pound or two of lightextract to increase the gravity to the mid-ﬁfties. The recipe also calls for primingwith 3 ounces of black treacle, which ismolasses. This seems low, and it alsoseems that different brands would containdifferent amounts of fermentable sugar.

I also used 6.6 pounds of cannedextract. The resulting beer was about 1/3 asdark as the original.
