Title: London Pride Clone Beer
Post by: slaphappy44 on March 08, 2010, 09:11:23 PM
Does anybody out there in forumland have a clone recipe for Fullers London Pride?  I love this beer very much, but can only drink it from time to time because of the price  :'(.  Any help would be much appreciated.

I brewed this a couple years ago and loved it.  If I made it again I'd switch to WLP002, but the S-04 tasted great at the time.  Come to think of it...I may make this again soon!

London Calling
1.043-1.011
30 ibus
5.5 gallon batch

7# British Pale (MO)
1# Simpson's British Crystal 75L
1/2# Demerara (or any light brown sugar)

1/2oz Target for 60 min
3/4oz Northdown for the last 10 minutes

S-04 dry yeast fermented in low sixties for 2 weeks

Fuller's has such a unique style of brewing that I think it's very hard to emulate their products truly, but maybe I just think that because the ESB always eludes me.  This LP is pretty close, tho.

Good Luck!

I taste a touch of dark crystal in there as well.

Looks tasty to me, gonna try this on saturday, as i have everything on hand. When does the sugar go in? 5-10 min sound ok.

I think you can add the sugar whenever you like on this one.  I think I dissolved it in a little pot and then added it to the kettle in liquid form with 10 minutes left in the boil.

Have fun!

I've got an extract one here, and can look up an all-grain version when I get back to the book (CAMRA's Brew Your Own British Real Ale, which has plenty more besides)

I remember that Challenger is in Pride.  Pride is not dry hopped.

The Chiswick and ESB are dry hopped.   Pride shows off the malts.
