I brewed this on December 26th. Do you think it's too soon to keg it?

What's the gravity? How's it taste? If both are good then I'd say go for it.

I'll check gravity either tonight or tomorrow. I'm eager to start drinking this one.

i plan on brewing this soon, but with only fuggles or ekg(one or the other, not both like the recipe calls for). I have a sack of wheat, do you think replacing a couple pounds of the 2row with wheat would be a nice change?

I just washed and saved a few jars of WLP007, so this recipe seems like it might be next on the list. I actually never had an ESB until yesterday. Tried a Evolution Craft "Exile ESB" and loved it. This recipe seems to be popular so it must be good

I've been drinking this for a couple of weeks with mods... Bumped the EKG and Fuggle to 50 IBUs total and dry hopped with 1/2 oz of amarillo... It was a little harsh at first... OG was 1.046... but has mellowed... it's freaking delish now....highly recommend to ESB lovers and those looking to try a classic beer...

This has been my AG learning recipe. I still make a bunch of mistakes but it churns out good beer. Looking forward to tomorrow's LHBS brewday batch.

Thanks again!

EXTRACT VERSION

I've paged through all 32 pages looking for an extract version. Surprisingly no one's mentioned an extract version so here's what I've come up with myself:
Common Room ESB
Special/Best/Premium Bitter

Recipe Specs
---------------
Batch Size (L): 23.0
Total Grain (kg): 4.150
Total Hops (g): 100.00
Original Gravity (OG): 1.053 (°P): 13.1
Final Gravity (FG): 1.013 (°P): 3.3
Alcohol by Volume (ABV): 5.21 %
Colour (SRM): 11.0 (EBC): 21.7
Bitterness (IBU): 34.5 (Average)
Brewhouse Efficiency (%): 70
Boil Time (Minutes): 60

Grain Bill
---------------
3.500 kg Liquid Malt Extract - Light (84.34%)
0.350 kg Crystal 60 (8.43%)
0.200 kg Carapils (Dextrine) (4.82%)
0.100 kg Crystal 120 (2.41%)

Hop Bill
---------------
30.0 g East Kent Golding Pellet (4.5% Alpha) @ 60 Minutes (First Wort) (1.3 g/L)
20.0 g Fuggles Pellet (4.2% Alpha) @ 60 Minutes (Boil) (0.9 g/L)
10.0 g East Kent Golding Pellet (4.5% Alpha) @ 20 Minutes (Boil) (0.4 g/L)
15.0 g Fuggles Pellet (4.2% Alpha) @ 20 Minutes (Boil) (0.7 g/L)
10.0 g East Kent Golding Pellet (4.5% Alpha) @ 0 Minutes (Boil) (0.4 g/L)
15.0 g Fuggles Pellet (4.2% Alpha) @ 0 Minutes (Boil) (0.7 g/L)

Fermented at 20°C with Safale S-04

Recipe Generated with BrewMate

I changed the hops schedule a little because I can order the hops in 50g amounts, so it's more economical for me to order 50g of each Fuggles and EKG. (Decreased EKG FWH and added some Fuggles at 60mins). Do you think this will still give a good hops profile or would it give me any lesser of a result?

I also figured a little carapils would be a good addition since it's an extract batch.

First Wort Hopping: I've done this in a partial mash brew before. But what about first wort hopping an extract batch - does it work? I could throw in the hops after I remove the steeped grains. Perhaps even thow in some malt extract at this stage (instead of waiting until close to the boil as I normally do) to simulate a first wort?

aidin, I think your recipe and the process you describe for FWH are good. Toss the hops in when you take the steeped grains out and it should be very close to the same results. Cheers!

Brewing this as a two fold experiment! 1, trying my hand at a Bitter and 2, I've always shopped my lhbs for ingredients. Going to see how Brewmasters Warehouse does with ordering these grains and hops.
