Default Fuller's Nut


I'm really stuck in the bitter style - for me everything from ordinary to esb are extraordinary, it just fits my taste for beer.

Doesn't Fuller's have an unusual sweet taste to you? I've seen people use maize in their clones, I've not done the all grain clone but have the partial mash clone in my primary now. It has corn sugar in the recipe but I doubt that will contribute to any sweet taste... I guess it is just a more malty balance (I can't describe it right - I need to drink more..) I also heard from someone who said they toured Fullers brewery that they said they used caramelized sugar. What do you think? (as you're mashing away...)

Yeah, it was probably a mistake for me to even mention Fuller's ESB in this thread as it is so different to what I was going for. Yes. I agree that Fuller's has a very different taste to most special bitters. It's somewhat cleaner in a fruity way than what I was aiming for.

er, Just forget i ever mentioned Fuller's!

This brew is intended more as a standard/special pub bitter. Just a basic southern brew.

I guess i could post the comparison pic between Gnaughty Gnome (left) and Speckled Hen (Right)

The GG is only 1 week in the bottle, so it's just slightly more cloudy that the OSH

I'll say it again though, i was not going for a Speckled hen clone. However, if you like Speckled Hen, then you will probably like GG too.

I know what I was going to ask... if you had some London (1028) or some ESB (1968) Weast around which would you use in place of the notty? Or just stick to the notty?

To be honest, i'm not familiar with either so i dunno. When playing with this recipe I only tried Nottingham and SO-4 because I wanted to have one of the most easily available dry yeast strains to be in keeping with the notion of making it really easy to get the ingredients list together.
