radioBrewshed ESB

Beer style: ESB
Target ABV: 8%
Hops: Challenger and Goldings
Ready for drinking: from 10 Sep 2014 (bottled)

So many pale ales recently. I thought something a bit more serious would be good and am aiming for my highest ABV yet at 8%. To up the alcohol content I added a bit of treacle to the boil. Extra sugar = extra alcohol. Hopefully boiling up the treacle with the wort for 90 minutes will add a nice burnt toffee flavour. It’s going to be deep and red and full of British hops. I hope it’ll be a great post-dinner drink to share – something nice to go with cheese.

And a perfect day of brewing in the brewshed and listening to England win the cricket.
