Evan's Special Bitter (ESB)
I've made this beer twice, and both times it turned out great. It's not quite to style with 3 lbs. of Munich Malt, but it gives it a good malty backbone.
6 lb. Marris Otter
3 lb. Munich Malt
1 lb. 2-row
0.5 lb. Crystal 40L
0.5 lb. Aromatic Malt
UK Challenger 8.0% AA 60 min.
East Kent Goldings 4.75% AA 45 min.
UK Challenger 8.0% AA 30 min.
East Kent Goldings 4.75% AA 15 min.
East Kent Goldings 4.75% AA 5 min.
Mash at 154 degrees F for 60 minutes
60 minute boil
Ferment at 68 degrees F for 7 days
Secondary optional (I usually skip it for this beer)
any reason you skip the secondary?
I've found this beer clears pretty quickly, and so far everytime I've brewed it, it's gone straight to the keg where the yeast will crash out. When kegging, I leave it primary for about two weeks. If I were bottling it, I'd probably put it in secondary. It also turns around pretty quickly, it's quite good when it's young.
