Smooth, malty, and moderately hoppy, this is a classic E.S.B. that is a true showcase of quality organic beer. The recipe is loosely based on our popular Red Honey ESB recipe that we offered years ago. This ale is light amber in color and is sure to be a crowd pleaser. If you want more of a dry, crisp finish and a higher alcohol content we recommend adding 1 to 2 lbs of raw honey (not included in the kit) to the boil. For a hoppier finish, try dry hopping with organic Kent Goldings hops (purchase separately). Contains organic malt extract, organic malted barley, organic barley flakes, organic hops, organic dry malt extract (DME) for bottling, Irish Moss, recipe, and instructions. Produces an original gravity of approximately 1.058. IBU's: 44. Recommended yeast for this kit (Not included! Order separately): Wyeast #1098 British Ale or #1968 Special London Ale, or White Labs #013 London Ale or #005 British Ale.
***NOTE: If you choose the option to purchase the kit without DME or corn sugar for bottling you will need to supply your own bottling sugar (corn sugar, DME, etc.). You may not need bottling sugar if you plan to keg your beer.
Our all grain kits do not come in fancy packaging (box with color label), thus we do not have a "plain brown wrapper" option.
