I just wanted to thank you for this recipe. I brewed this as my first foray into the AG world. It has been in the fermenter for a week now and it is looking good, I can't wait t keg it.

Has anyone else have some very vigorous yeast activity with this beer? My airlock blew off and I had to improvise a blow-off tube.

Also, my fermentation temps have bee hitting 73-74 degree range. Does anyone think S-04 may produce some off-flavours at this temperature?

Thank You

With fermentation temps that high, you may be into a longer conditioning time. Mine fermented at around 62F, and it took a while to condition.

Just brewed this today via the BIAB method. My OG was 1.055 so right on the money! Hydrometer sample looked and tasted great! I have high hopes for this brew. Thanks for the recipe!!

In the tun right now. If this is as good as the caramel amber ale then I can't wait to try it!

Well SOB. Cleaning up from the brew day and what do i find on the bench. The final addition of EKG and Fuggle. Forgot the flameout addition. DOH! My plan is to primary for 2 weeks then 1 week dry hop. Hopefully she turns out good. I know dry hop is different but who knows.

This beer is fantastic! It's become one of my house brews and everyone that tries it loves it! I changed the yeast to WLP007, and it finishes up pretty quick. Thanks for sharing!

Default Common Room gone wrong...


I've only had a couple of commercial examples of an ESB, but I brewed this and it is bordline drinkable vs tossing it. Disclaimer, I changed the hops to Northdown and Progress, but I followed the grain bill to the letter. Fermented at 68-70 with S-04 for about 9 days, reached 1.016 and kegged. After a week or so of carbing up, it has an extremely nutty taste up front, almost like that of a peanut husk with that is harsh. It fades as you make your way through the glass, but I've never experienced this in a beer. I've been brewing 2.5 years and feel my process is down, but very disappointed in the way it came out and figure it has to be something wrong on my end. My other concerns is I wonder if my LHBS got some of the malts mixed up....

Brewing this now. First brew using my new grain mill and my 3 year old son just broke my hydrometer so I have no idea about efficiency/gravity etc. Oh well, as long as its drinkable!

When I brewed this it took awhile for the flavors to come together. I'd let it sit in the keg for a month or so & then give it a go.
