Recipe adapted from Gales Best in "Brew Your Own British Real Ale" and information on the Gales website. I subbed chocolate malt for black patent and Willamette hops for Fuggles (because that's what I had). You can sub Wyeast 1968 London ESB, WLP002 or Safale S-04 for the yeast, though Wyeast 1332 is reportedly the Gales strain (via Hales brewery in Oregon), so will have the most authentic flavor.
