Extra Special Bitter Extract Beer Recipe Kit
More complex 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.
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 tasting esb! Easy to brew
I've done this one before, one of my favs.
The rest of the ingredients were good, the yeast - not so much.
Needed to tun out after waiting patiently for a few days... I hope I didn't pick up anything when dormant... we'll see...
I was looking for a recipe for an ESP for the summer and as an escape from all the IPAs. This one came out fantastic! Just what I was looking for. Not too aggressive. A fine balance between hops and malt. A solid pub style ale.
Not bad. Hit the target gravity but still too sweet. Thinking the extract doesn't fermente very well.
