Looks good GI, agree with GMK just chuck it in the mash. Would probably up the base malt a bit as Fullers ESB is 5.5% - 5.9% ABV if you want it to pack as much punch.

Could also use a english pale malt if you had it handy but if you have lots of pils malt then who cares (I have 45kg atm so all my brews will be with pils malt for a while :))

Looks tasty

Hi Iggy
For another point of comparison, the AHB ESB we did at the Perth brew meet was og 1.056 from
25% light munich
4% crystal
.5% black
65% ale malt
5% wheat
30IBU from target and challenger
At least another 10 IBU from 80 g Goldings at the end

I tasted that beer against Fullers ESB. Fullers was a lighter, more reddish colour so your lighter recipe looks good. Fullers had a lighter body, more crisp taste than the AHB ESB, so your corn addition looks good to get the body right. But the bitterness and hop flavour was pretty similar between the two. So even considering that being more malty, the AHB ESB would handle more IBUs, I reckon your 32IBU could be a tad low for Fullers, especially if it will be stored a while, and I might go closer to the bitterness in Rays recipe. Just another datapoint to think about. When I tasted the AHB ESB from the fermenter I thought it was badly out of balance, but a few weeks later the bitterness is tasting about right.

Gav from Goliath's forum posted the following about Fullers london pride...good post matey...will take this onboard..

"London Pride is only 1.040 OG but is still quite rich and malty, you'd swear it was more like 1.048. The actual brewery recipe I was given was from the CAMRA book The Real Ale Almanac by Roger Protz and goes something like this;

OG1040,4.1%ABV
90% Alexis & Chariot pale malt
3% crystal
7% flaked maize
caramel
24 units of colour
Bitterness: Target
Bitterness & Aroma: Challenger & Northdown
Hop pellets
30 IBU "

Just reading the November 'BEER' paper from CAMRA and there is an article by Roger Protz on Fulllers ESB. Bt of an interesting exerpt on the ingredients:

For a beer of such awesome complexity, it is remarkable that just two malts Optic pale and crystal are used. The Hop recipe is comprised of Target at the start of the boil and Challeger and Northdown at the end. After fermentation the beer rests on a bed of goldings in the maturation tanks, and the same variety is used to dry hop the beer. This process, which involves a handful of hops being added to each cask as it leaves the brewery has been changed marginally. A smaller amount of hops are added to balance the aroma and flavour of the beer.

The beer is matured for longer in the brewery. Ironically, the maturation lasts for 21 days, which is equivalent to the time devoted to cold conditioning for most modern lagers.
Food for thought .... :rolleyes:

The London Pride is a partigyle from Fuller's barleywine, Golden Pride (IIRC)

I have long wondered if the extra malt in a partigyle tun makes the beers (first one or two runnings anyway) maltier and tastier. I generally think that more malt in the tun makes for tastier beers and so try not to get too high an efficiency. I also wonder if there would be much of the corn left by the time the second gyle is run out.

I do like the LP a lot, my own and the commercial version when that was available from Rose Park Cellars (now a BWS shop)

Seems unlikely given the difference in volumes - I doubt Golden Pride makes up more than one tenth of one percent of the volume of London Pride produced.

As far as ESB is concerned, it needs to be dry hopped like no other significant volume cask ale I know of- a huge carpet of hops in the top of the cask. (London Pride isn't dry hopped at all. Chiswick has a modest dry hopping.)

Ray, how'd this one turn out? I'm keen to try brewing an Fullers ESB style.

Also, anyone have comments on CO2 carbonation levels and serving temps for a beer such as this?

Tim.

I found this recipe trolling the net here



I think it looks like a good guess so it's on my brew list.
I'll probably home roast the Amber and the Aromatic.
I haven't done conversions to metric yet.

12oz British 55L Crystal
8oz Flaked Maize
2oz British Amber Malt
2oz Aromatic Malt
Balance Pale Malt (Maris Otter)

1oz Target (90m)
1/2oz Challenger (15m)
1/2oz Northdown (10m)
1oz EKG 1m
1/2oz EKG Dry hop secondary

Wyeast 1968

SG 1056-1014; SRM 13; IBU 44

I know I'm dragging this post up from 8 months ago, but do you think Fullers ESB uses east kent goldings or styrian goldings? Everywhere authorative source I've read, including here, doesn't specify.

I noticed a similar flavour in Emersons 1812 IPA and Fullers ESB. Can anyone suggest what it might be? I'm not familiar with styrian goldings so could it be this? Or maybe I'm tasting something else - treated water or the yeast. There's a definite English style flavour I find in both beers that I didn't achieve in my partial ESB (with maris otter, crystal, extract, target, challenger, EKG, Wyeast 1968 and tap water).
