Extra Special/Strong Bitter (English Pale Ale)
Beer Color


Mash at 64 C or 147 F. A very malty example of an English Pale Ale - almost chewy. This recipe is aimed at keeping fermenters at an ambient 16 C or 61 F. However this yeast can be fermented at lower ambients (12 C or 54 F) or slightly higher temps to yield some interesting yet pleasant changes Source: Gavin Lyle
