English County FWHfb

Type: All Grain

Date: 5/6/2003

Batch Size: 5.81 gal

Brewer: Steve Nicholls
Boil Size: 6.78 galAsst Brewer:
Boil Time: 60 min Equipment: Steve + 500ml Starter
Taste Rating(out of 50): 45.0 Brewhouse Efficiency: 75.00
Taste Notes: Liquid gold. This is a beer with a wonderful malt profile and the superb taste and bite of Goldings hops. The yeast used adds a complexity of fruity flavours right to the last drop. Pick a water style similar to an English bitter. Not too much sulphate.
