Product details

Think of this as a British Bitter squared - more malt and more hops equals higher gravity, bigger body, more bitterness, and more intense flavors and aromas. A more complex beer than an "ordinary" low-gravity bitter, an ESB is a showcase for high-quality hops and brewing skill, meant to be enjoyed with consideration rather than merely quaffed. Our kit pours with a rich red color and white head and pronounced aromas of hop and fruit.

Great kit — all that’s missing is a gravity-pull cask to feel like I’m drinking Real Ale in an English pub.

Great recipe

I’ve brewed a number of ESB recipes and this one is the best so far. I profiled this one to be dry/bitter and it came out perfect having a nice malt beginning with a dry hop finish. I used Imperial A09 Pub yeast which cleaned up excellent leaving a very clean and clear pint. If you like English pale ales and are looking for an elevated version of those this kit delivers on that.

British Bitter

The bitter is a little hazier than I expected- but I like it. I did a 10gal batch and split fermentation into two carboys. At the end of the first week I cold-steeped the chocolate grains for 24hrs and then added it to one carboy. I ended up with two nice beers that don’t seem to be related.
