Atlantic Bitter - ESB

Atlantic Bitter

This ESB is inspired by Propeller Brewing's ESB. I couldn't find a definitive clone recipe so I just improvised. It doesn't taste much like the target beer, but is very delicious....

It was meant to be similar to Saison Dupont. Based off of a clone recipe from 'Clone Brews'. Looks like it put me on the wrong path?

Poor hop utilization?

Hey everyone,

I believe I am getting poor hop utilization. All of my beer seem to be lacking in that hop bitterness, or tasting too sweet.

Same here

I've had an order of two 10g kettles on backorder for months, and my little home brew supply makes you pay when placing the order. Not cool.
