[quote=“Ken Lenard”]My best ESBs have been just UK Pale Malt (Maris Otter, Golden Promise, etc.), about 8 ounces of Simpson’s or Thomas Fawcett Dark Crystal and 4-8 ounces of Torrified wheat, a mix of EKG, Stryian Goldings and/or US Kents and 1028. Very simple, very authentic, very good.
On the crystal, the Simpson’s version is the 70-80 (very good) and on the Thomas Fawcett, it’s called Dark Crystal #1 (even better). If you want the exact recipe, I’ll post it.[/quote]
I would love the recipe, Ken. Like some others, an ESB is on my short list, and I happen to have some Thomas Fawcett Dark Crystal #1, which I agree is a little better than Simpson’s.
