1 Pkgs London ESB Ale (Wyeast Labs #1968) Yeast-Ale

Mashed at about 154 Degrees for an hour.

This was designed using the malt bill from threads about the Ninkasi Total Domination IPA, which is my favorite IPA. I guessed at the amounts and made my own hop bill using Beersmith. While close to the Ninkasi version, I think it would need some tweaking to be an exact match. An orange-ish color left unfilitered. My version has an awesome hop nose and solid bitterness in the style of a Left Coast IPA. My most successful brew to date. Give it a try and let me know what you think. Will post pics when I get a chance. Definitely a solid one.
