Great English Bitter

by brett

While I often brew very hoppy ales, this one is much closer to a traditional English Bitter or Special Bitter - far less hoppy. As a result it is one of my wife's favorites to date. I would like to try it again using the new Maris Otter extract as well, but this still has an excellent Maris Otter malt characteristic taste.
While the idea for using Maris Otter and doing a partial mash is mine, credit for the design of this ale certainly goes to the folks at Central Street Farmhouse in Bangor, Maine. They are always most helpful and I highly recommend paying them a visit if you are in the area.

Award winner!

This recipe was my fourth batch ever, and it turned out great! I used Maris Otter LME instead of the Golden, and Whitbread Ale yeast. Made a really wonderful, easy to enjoy brew.

This won 3rd place of 15 entries in the local Brew Hut Homebrew contest, in the English and Brown Ales category.

Unfortunately, I over carbonated this. 4oz corn sugar was way too much. The taste and aroma were both right on, though. Would definitely try this recipe again.
