Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: Safale S-04 English Ale   
Yeast Starter: Yes   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.25   
Original Gravity: 1.057   
Final Gravity: 1.014   
IBU: 39   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 11   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3-4 weeks   
Tasting Notes: Malty caramel up front, firmly bitter to balance.   

I only post my recipes that are very well liked by everyone that tries them, and this is no exception. This ESB is based on the recipe in "Brewing Classic Styles" with several small adjustments. It leans a little to the sweet side initially, but the bitterness is firm and balances nicely. Very tasty. I think I'll be brewing a lot of this. Enjoy!


10.00 lb US 2-row
0.50 lb Crystal 20L
0.25 lb Crystal 120L

2.25 oz. Willamette [4.5%] @ 60 min
1.00 oz. Willamette [4.5%] @ 0 min

Safale S-04 English Ale Yeast

Mash at 152 F for 60 mins.
Boil 60 mins.

I need to make this one again soon. It went so quick the last time that I barely got any myself. Might be good with a touch of biscuit malt too.

I recently brewed this again using Maris Otter this time instead of 2-row and used German Northern Brewer hops. The sample was very good, can't wait to get it tapped!
