Recipe Type: Extract   
Yeast: WLP002   
Yeast Starter: No   
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: None   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.057   
Final Gravity: 1.018   
IBU: 30   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 13 SRM   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 8 @ 70 F   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 @ 70 F   

6.6 lbs Munton's Extra Light LME
.5 lbs Aromatic Malt
.5 lbs Crystal 120L Malt
.5 lbs Victory Malt
.25 lbs Special Roast Malt
1 ounce 5% AA East Kent Golding hop pellets @ 60 mins

1 ounce 5% AA East Kent Golding hop pellets @ dry hopped

Steeped grains in water that was roughly 155 degrees for half an hour, brewed as normal.

Fermentation times can probably be shortened, but I'm too lazy to take hydrometer readings and prefer to just let things go.

How did this turn out? Anything like Fuller's ESB? or were you going for something different?

It came out well. It's somewhat like Fuller's, but I think a little fuller bodied. It's definitely more malty than bitter. I liked it so much, I plan on rebrewing it every time it runs out.

Thanks. I might have to try this as my next batch... Does "Pyrrhic Victory ESB" mean anything?

I don't get the name of the beer. It looks pretty straight forward. What was the devastating cost? Did you exhaust your supply of East Kent Golding?

Well, I really want to call it BSE ESB, but the thread poster wouldn't let me capitalize all the letters and kept changing it to Bse Esb, which looks dumb.

Mostly it's just because it has Victory malt in it.

I brewed this and it tasted good before I kegged it. A little bready and it had a nice bitterness. Got infection at some point though and now tastes rubbery and sour. Still drinkable after that, so it must be a good brew. I will rebrew this in my new fermenter soon and report back.

Made three batches of this for some underground dinners and it was a HUGE hit. Going to brew it again this week.

I tried some of brooklynkitchen's batch. Yum. This is definitely on the "to brew" list.

Why did you bottle with only 2 ounces of corn sugar? and how long do you condition in the bottle for best results?
