Not quite ESB grade, here's my recipe for an Ordinary Bitter. It recently scored a 37.3 (first in its flight) in a comp in Philly. I suppose you could scale it up to make it an ESB.

OG: 1.037
FG: 1.009
SRM: 10
ABV: 3.7%
IBU: 33

92.3% Maris Otter
7.7% Crystal 120

15.1 IBU East Kent Goldings 60 min
11.5 IBU East Kent Goldings 30 min
6.0 IBU East Kent Goldings 15 min

1 pkg Safale S-04 (rehydrated and oxygenated, of course)

Water Profile:
Ca: 55
Mg: 14
Sodium: 3
SO4: 111
Cl: 51
Mash pH: 5.26

Using gelatin to clarify, this beer went grain to glass in less than two weeks and it was crystal clear.

Personally, I would ditch the brown sugar.  Sounds like blatz concurs.  I've never seen that in an ESB recipe.

Try 8-12% eng med Crystal and Maris Otter.  25% caramel malts plus brown sugar is counteractive and likely going to be muddled.  Simpler is better.  Hop schedule looks ok.

Should I keep the brown sugar or ditch it?

Well, I've got 3 All Grain batches under my belt so far. All of those were recipes I found and scaled to my system. There were maybe 1 or 2 things I added or did differently, but for the most part I stuck with the original idea.

I've been doing some research on ESB's. I'm shooting for something that's malt forward, nice mouth feel, depth of flavor. I thought I'd post the recipe to get some feedback from more experienced brewers.

I brew 5 Gallon batches.

ABV: 5.96 %
OG: 1.058 SG
FG: 1.012 SG
IBUs: 24.3
IBUs Color: 12.2 SRM



Cheers
