Beer style for ESB - 8c
« on: December 31, 2015, 02:53:56 PM »
I have BeerSmith 2 mobile version 2.2.61 and Inwant to add a new recipe for an ESB. When I select the "Beer style comparison", I don't see a selection for the ESB style, which I think should be 8C.

Why aren't all BJCP styles in this list?

In the 2008 BJCP guidelines, 8C is the guideline for that style.

In the 2015 guidelines, it's 11C, British Strong Bitter.  The term "ESB" is a trademark of Fullers and isn't used in the new guidelines.
