Had a little Easter BBQ yesterday. A few beer drinkers were there so I told them this beer was on tap and they could help themselves. Got lot's of compliments and I saw them making several trips back to the bar lol. I had a few myself and I must say that it is a great session beer with lot's of flavor.

I'm brewing up another batch of common room today. I've been on a brewing hiatus for several months and figured this would be a good beer to kick start some more brewing. I'm using s-04 for the first time in a long time, since that is how I originally brewed the recipe and I want to go back and try the original.

My experiment was a success. The beer is great, SOOO drinkable. and Brewmaster's Warehouse was awesome, just 1 click for ingredients and 2 days later they're at my door. This is on tap now at my house (though not for long, hah)

Glad you like the beer! And yeah, Brewmaster's Warehouse is great, but they stopped carrying the Simpson's crystal malts. So while I like Crisp's crystal 60 better than Simpson's crystal 55, Crisp doesn't make an equivalent to Simpson's extra dark crystal. But the Crisp's crystal 120 should work fine.

.50 oz Fuggles [3.60 %] (First Wort Hop)
1oz northern brewer (First Wort Hop)
0.50 oz Fuggles [4.00 %] (20 min) Hops 2.0 IBU
0.50 oz Fuggles [4.00 %] (0 min) Hops -
1 Pkgs SafAle English Ale (DCL Yeast #S-04) Yeast-Ale

Also missed my mash temp, first 30minutes were 150F, last 30minutes i brought it up to 153F

Brewed this on Easter Sunday, so its the Common Room Easter ESB! Having a pint right now, and I'm loving it. I used Crisp Marris Otter and Crisp 60 and 120 for the caramel malts (from Brewmasters Warehouse) along with the 1968 yeast. My plan is to keep brewing this recipe, but change out with a new British yeast each time. Im in for one hell of a ride!

Thanks for the recipe KingBrain!

After a full two weeks in the keg this is a really good brew. Had a couple pints while brewing today. Apologies for the lack of head, it's actually nicely carbed but this sat for 20 min while I battled near boil-overs.

I'm finding out s-04 takes a bit longer to condition than the liquid yeasts I've used for this recipe lately. The "green" flavor is about gone and it's drinking really nicely now. Here's a video of my pouring a pint from this afternoon.

I like how your dog is trying to lick the tap. My dog licks the floor as I don't have a drip tray .
