That's easy: WY1968 (Fullers)

Probably by far the most used Wyeast yeast for an ESB.

Going to brew a slight variant of this on Sunday. Using Briess Pale Ale malt for the base malt, with .75 lbs of Simpson's Crystal 50-60 and .25 lbs of Simpson's Extra Dark (155-165) malt. My AA% on the bittering hops is a little low as well, so might throw in a bit extra of the Fuggles at 20 mins to both add some IBUs and add some more hops character.

And yes, I had access to plenty of MO, but I've been dying to try out a domestic Pale Ale malt for some time now -- and particularly in a British-style ale. It's a big cost savings over time, and I want to support local/regional maltsters, so it's worth a shot, right?

Anyway, can't wait to brew this up. Cheers!

Kingbrianl,
What hop utilization did you use...I'm only calculating 26.2 IBU with beer tools pro and tenseth.

I'm not sure whether Beersmith defalts to Tinseth, Rager or whatever, but I just use the default. Different formulas will probably handle the FWH addition differently, while things like boil volume and boil gravity will also effect the calculation as you know.

Yeah, and I'm not sure if you can select FWH in beer tools pro...it's just treating it as a 60 min add.

Thanks for getting back so quick- I'm brewing this one up in a couple of days, looking forward to trying it.

If you were going to add hops as you suggested in one of the posts on this thread, would you just increase the flame out addition? I'm thinking of adding more fuggles.

Thanks again!

Additional flameout fuggles couldn't hurt.

I just had my first pint of this last night. It was an experiment for me, I started with distilled water & added salts from there. I didn't have much for hops on hand, so I used 100% Chinook. I still shot for 35IBU's & did a FWH with .5oz. I kept everything else the same. It went from grain to glass in 16 days & it's fantastic, probably the best beer I've made to date! Very clear already, nice & malty, with a slight hop bitterness. The nose is amazing.

Thanks for this recipe Brian, I love how simple it is!

I may stick to your hopping weights, assuming I'll get a few more IBUs out of my roided out fuggles.

Thanks!

That's what mine are, did you get them from Freshops? Although Fuggle is usually always higher than EKG

Yeah, they are from freshops...yes fuggle is typically higher than EKG... but usually around 5%.
