Extra Special/Strong Bitter (English Pale Ale)

Description:

This is a light bitter ale, kinda modelled after some of Washington's bitters. In particular the ESB and Ballard Bitter from Redhook. My landlord/friend had just been there and brought a bunch back, and I was inspired. Now my brew didn't have the same taste as these, but I think it became a nice bitter pale which many folks enjoyed the night we killed the keg.

Ingredients:

  • 13 pounds, 2--row pale malted barley
  • 2 pounds, 20L crystal malt
  • 1 pound, corn flakes
  • 1 pound, wheat malt
  • 2 ounces, Cascade leaf hops (boil)
  • 1/2 ounce, Perle leaf hops (boil)
  • 1/2 ounce, Fuggles leaf hops (boil)
