Beer Style: Extra Special/Strong Bitter (English Pale Ale)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons
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.
I did a step mash, following normal procedure.
