I brewed this for the first time a few weeks back. My nearest grain shop had the Gambrinus ESB malt so I used that for the base. Ended up with an OG of 1.050 and finished at 1.008. I left the beer in the fermenter for three weeks. SG reading after the first week was 1.008 and tasted ok. Sample at two weeks tasted so horrible and harsh I started second guessing my brew day. Luckily reading this thread assuaged my fears and at bottling time this evening the sample tasted very good. There was a pronounced earthiness and mellow bitterness. I'm sure looking forward to tasting this beer when it's carbonated.

Thanks for the recipe.

One week in nthe bottle now, put a bottle in the fridge yesterday and opened it today at lunch. Unfortunately no carbonation to speak of. Of course I drank the entire glass of nearly still beer anyway. It was tasty but typically thin due to lack of carbonation. I'll wait another week and repeat. Home brewing is hard for a patience challenged man like me.

Well there's your problem right there. One week is not near enough time.

Anyone tried this recipe with American hops? I usually don't have traditional noble varieties.

Trying this today as my first all-grain brew. So far so good, mashed in 10 minutes ago, and only missed by 1 degree!

Interested in brewing this one up, but a bit confused. You have the FWH as:

But when I click on the BWM link for the recipe: http://www.brewmasterswarehouse.com/...ommon-room-esb

The FWH is:

Kent Goldings, UK Pellets 2 oz @ FWH

Which is it?

Cheers!
