ESB 4-7-12

No Sparge, ten gallon

20 pounds of Maris Otter
2.25 pounds 85L Crystal
15 gallons of 158 water
Mashed at 148 for 60 minutes
Yeilded 13 gallons of wort

2 oz Bramling Cross at 60
2 oz Bramling Cross at 30
2 oz Bramling Cross at 15
Irish Moss at 15
Kegged on 4-29.
While I enjoy the flavor of Bramling Cross, This ale was a bit of overkill. A slight flavor of Old Ale, the Black Currant flavors from the Bramling Cross give it the dark fruit flavors reminiscent of Old Ale. An interesting experiment would be to send it to a competition and enter as an Old Ale and an ESB. Maybe....
