Default Which Bitter recipe would you recomend for someone wanting...

A weakish (3.5-4.5%) bitter with not to much of a stong taste. Kind of like larger but nicer.

If anyone has tried "Stones Bitter" from Yorkshire or Abbot Ale from Kent then they may have an idea.

There are many recipes on here - just not sure which to choose! Any ideas would be insane.

Thanks Ben

Um, Abbot is stronger (5% in the bottle) and not what I would call without taste! I have a thread here with a possible recipe. Maybe give some more suggestions of what you like?

How about Shiver Me Bitters (all grain or extract). Help donate to a good cause.

I think the shipping to the UK would be a bitch!

thik i might go for something like Fulers london Pride:-

3600 grams pale malt
306 grams flaked maize ( cornflakes)
130 crystal malt
1.5 tsp brewers caramel for colour

Hops

90 minute boil.

11 grams target
11 grams Challenger
10 grams Northdown

10 grams northdown for 15 minutes alonfg with 15 g Irish moss.

11.5 liters mash water, continuaous sparge

Would suggest Wyeast 1068 ESB which is almost identical to the one fullers use.

Gives an ABV og around the 4.1 mark and is a very smooth drinkable pint.

Thanks
