Beer Style: Extra Special/Strong Bitter (English Pale Ale) (8C)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 gallons
This comes out tasting something like draught Bass, or Fuller's London Pride.
To this recipe I add adjunts such as amber malt, chocolate malt, roast barley, Fuggles instead of Goldings, etc to yield what looks and tastes a very different beer, but has 90-95% identical ingredients.
Mash in 3 gallons boiled water with 1 teaspoon gypsum (66 C., for 3 hours, or overnight). Sparge to 4--1/2 gallons. Boil 1--1/2 hours with 1 teaspoon Irish moss. Add hops as indicated above. Cool with immersion chiller, rack and aerate. Pitch Edme yeast. Rack to secondary after 4 days. Fine if necessary. Dry hop with 1/4 ounce Goldings in secondary. Keg or bottle after 2 weeks (primed with 3 ounces, malt extract).
