A simple partial mash ESB inspired by Fuller's using only flat pounds and ounces (except for corn maize). I'd call it a near-clone for any brewer who wants a great ESB without the trouble of going all-grain. Inspired by "Can You Brew It" recipe and other informations given by the brewer to make a partial mash with color, ABV and IBUs as close to the original. The liquid extract MUST be added at the end of the boil for proper IBU and taste. Ferment in the low 60 F for 5 days and ramp it up to 70 F at the end of the primary. Transfer to secondary and dry hop at around 65 F for a week. Dry-hopping is optionnal but it will bring an enjoyable fresh/floral hop feel that isn't there in the original, but it will fade as the beer ages. Add 5.5 oz of sugar for bottling. You could substitute Wyeast 1968 for 1469 (West Yorkshire Ale) and get a creamier head. It slightly changes the taste from Fuller's but it gives a spectacular "draught-style" mouthfeel. A great brew for any English beer lover!
