Just added 2oz of my whole hops from the backyard to the primary for some dry hopping. The color was fantastic and it tasted delicious already. Gravity was at 1.020 -- so maybe I shouldn't have dry hopped yet since the goal is to aim for 1.014? I'm not sure. I did let it sit for 2 weeks even though the recipe recommended 3 weeks. I've read so much conflicting information as to when dry hopping should start (after initial fermentation 7-10 days v. total 3-4 weeks). I just shot for inbetween those recommendations. Anyhow, we'll see what happens. I'm excited. I'll drop a line when I bottle. Cheers!

So you dry hopped an all British ESB with C-hops?

Yes...and the only reason was because I needed to use my hops from the backyard within a few weeks because I don't have any means to store them appropriately. Let's call it The American Revolutionary Ale -- British with an attack of American hops?

This ESB has aged wonderfully and is a perfect fall session brew. The picture is not great on this cloudy Michigan day but its crystal clear. I highly recommend this recipe!

Only after 10 days in the bottle. The taste is starting to transform but it's already good. Can't wait for a few weeks from now!

Brewing ESB this weekend, will let you know how it goes. Have you ever used Target for FWH?

1.060 OG
1.019 FG
Crystal clear and smooth. I love the hop schedule on this, FWH + late additions is the best way to go. I subbed First Gold (what I had) for the EKG and love that little spicy note from it.

My only deviation is that I dropped 2 ounces of EKG in for DH. I'll be bottling this soon, maybe tonight.
