Hey All:

Just wondering if anyone has a decent FUller's ESB clone (Extract w/ grains or AG). I've been looking through my files and on the Internets and haven't found a recipe that "seems right". Any help?

Also, y'all think WL002 would work OK with this?

Cheers! (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wink.gif)

Stuster --

Yeah --- I guess the brewmaster and the marketing guy don't talk much :-).

I think the BYO hops targets are close to spot on -- I just personally like EKGs a lot, and I have a pound or so on hand usually, whereas I never buy northdown, target, challenger etc. so I just used them instead.

In the recipe I made, using those grist targets, I need about .50LB of crystal, but I've gone back and forth on whether it should be 60L or 80L. Fuller's seems to have a caramelly undertone to me that I don't get as much from the 60L. Plus when I used the 60L, it came out a tad light in SRM.

Then again I know people say 80L doesn't belong in bitters, pales, yadayadyada. I've even thought about going up to 120L, but I guess I chickened out.

If I go with 60L again, I might consider using a 90 minute boil instead.

Since this thread has been brought up, I think I'll brew this one again in a couple of weeks. Don't know which crystal, but....
