Recipe – Diamond Park Mild

This dark mild recipe comes courtesy of People’s Pint Brewing Company out of Toronto – Beer By The People For The People! This beer was named after the Toronto Maple Leafs baseball team’s third stadium that stood in Liberty Village on Fraser and Liberty. It’s a dark full-flavoured session ale with notes of toffee and toast that finishes with enough body to satisfy but dry enough to refresh at the same time.

Toronto's water is almost perfect for dark beers and that is why I don't adjust it. If you're going from RO water, the best advice I can give is to target the following profile:

Ca: 34 - 45 ppm
Mg: 10 ppm
Na: 15 ppm
Cl: 25 - 35 ppm
SO4: 25 - 35 ppm
HCO: 65 ppm
