I'm going to brew an all-grain version of this tomorrow. I'm assuming the Fuggles is all for aroma. This should make it a slightly malty instead of on the rather hoppy side.
I had a recipe worked out I was going to brew called Barocktoberfest, but this will be a great replacement instead.
I've got an ESB recipe that I've done both with and without gypsum. In my experience the gypsum brought out the hop flavor to the front in a aggressive, almost bite-on-the-tongue kind of way. I prefer the more mellow, without gypsum version. That being said, my water is nothing like DC's.
