Just transferred to secondary last night. That stuff was crystal clear after only 7 days in the primary. Great, simple, quffable beer. It's been said before and I'll say it again, simplicity often produces great things.

Cheers to that! Now just try not to drink it all at once!

How much sugar do you use when bottling? It seems that you might use less because this style doesn't seem to be as carbonated as some.

Yeah, you don't want a whole lot of carbonation in an ESB. I usually carb to about 1.5 volumes. For a 5.5 gallon batch, that comes out to about 2 oz. of corn sugar.
