Is there an ESB style recipe already available as a Brewprint or if not can anyone suggest one using Brewart ingredients?

🍻

I’d go the English Bitter route

2 x E2, E3, X3, Y2. Now for extra bitterness dry hop early (day 3 after fermentation detected) with 2 x H7 (challenger). (if you have some Goldings hops you could use that instead)

Thank you.

I had a really nice ESB at a newish small craft brewery “The Suburban Brew” in Goodwood and am keen to replicate it.

ESB recipe in the 2nd Droid. Hops ready for day 3.

@Captain 3 Droids  what quantity of hops do you recommend?

As an aside, I kegged the Coopers Pale Ale and the Revolution Dark Lager yesterday afternoon. Plus cleanup of two Droids and two new brews on.

Annual Leave is good for something at least.

 

30g would be good

Today’s cook up went quite well and I managed to reach the gravities as specified in the recipe.

More importantly I finally got 10L to the Droid which is something I had been struggling with so far.

The LHBS were very kind and milled the grain for me. I should’ve asked them not to as I think it was a little too fine and I really had to crank the pump to get the wort flowing through the top plate correctly. 

I did learn that the Braumeister insulating jacket is not necessary on a warm day as the boil was a little too vigorous at times and was threatening to boil over.

@Captain 3 Droids you asked about how long it takes to chill the wort - today it took 27 minutes from 100C to 33.5C and I watered the orange tree with the output hose.
