ESB (ish) Recipe

    I'm not great (at all) with recipe formulation.... This was buried in my Brewtoad account so I'm not really sure where it came from. I probably had Centennial in there for bittering since I had some at the time. Since any hops I currently have are at least two years old, I'll buy new and could use whatever.
    I'm going to try to do this one on the stove. A 5 gallon batch and either a partial boil or a split boil. I'm leaning towards a split boil. Partial boil sounds more problematic and less likely to hit the numbers.

    Thoughts?

    Fermentables

    Hmmm. I'd really have to go back to my design guides but aside fron the wlp005 this seems like its "off"

    Right? I feel like it's a smathering of ingredients. Just weird. Like maybe I was trying to clean out grain and hops inventory.

    Yes, thats what it reads like to me as well. I was trying to be diplomatic.

    You could stop trying to classify beers and just make them. If this thread was named "beer I'm pplannin" the conversation would have started off very different.

    Mostly we'd just be talking about your spelling of planning.

    So you'd be as helpful as usual.

    So more importantly, would you like to build an ESB recipe? Are there specific ingredients you'd like to work around? Or can we just start from a clean slate?

    An ESB or an ordinary bitter sound yummy. All of my ingredients are 2+ years old. I'll just order a kit from AHS.

    a kit is probably the best approach. It's better than buying bulk when trying to get back into the swing of things.

    This, just forget about style guidelines.

    the first half would make a decent pale ale, the second half would make a decent esb...together they would make beer, but not the beer you're looking for.
