Tapping a keg of this on Christmas Eve. Been looking forward to this moment since I brewed it going on 2 months ago.

Just wanted to say I am going to brew this over the weekend. Really just did this so I can find the thread again. Never done an ESB before, recipe looks good. Any reason I cant use cascade or centennial (adjusted for IBUs)? I got a bunch and dont feel like gettin UK hops, but I will if I have to. Ill update.

I'm trying this one again this coming Saturday. This time, I decided on using the WLP023 Burton Ale yeast as oppose to Wyeast 1968 as it has slighty better attenuation. At what temperature should I mash using this yeast? Is 154F good?

Nice choice of yeast, I love Burton Ale. It will be great for this recipe. 154 would work great.

Wow an impressive recipe backed by an impressive amount of reviews.
I'll be brewing this on Sunday.

Jumping in with 2 feet, making it a double batch. Time to fill the cornies

Thanks for sharing.
