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!
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.
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.
