Default Extract - English Bitter

Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: Wyeast 1098 British Ale
Yeast Starter: No
Batch Size (Gallons): 5
Original Gravity: 1.034
Final Gravity: 1.008
IBU: 17.4
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60
Color: 5.81
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 15 days
Tasting Notes: Very good taste. Light, low alcohol. Less hop flavor/aroma than I would have liked.

Used the following:

3# light LME
1# amber DME
.5# Caramalt

1 oz. Kent Goldings for 60 minutes
1 oz. Kent Goldings for 1 minute

Did a partial volume boil with a boil OG of 1.070. For more hop bitterness/flavor/aroma, I would boil with a lower OG in the boil and split the 1 minute hop addition into .5 oz. for 15 minutes and .5 oz. for 2 minutes. Otherwise, this was a very good session beer.

Update: I have made this same recipe with both Windsor and Nottingham dry yeast. Both produce excellent results. The Windsor yeast requires more time to clear, but produces more esters than the Nottingham does. Regardless, either dry yeast would work very well with this recipe.
