Beer #26 - Best Bitter


Having just recently had a couple of lovely pints of classic best bitters at The Blake, another pub that's local to me, I decided to make something along those lines for the second beer of my double brewday. Again more or less winging it recipe-wise. 

  • 3.25kg Maris Otter
  • 0.2kg Pale Crystal
  • 0.2kg Pale Wheat
  • 0.41kg Dark Crystal
  • 20g Northdown @ 60
  • 10g Northdown @ 15
  • 10g East Kent Goldings @ 15
  • 20g East Kent Goldings @ 0
Got a little more from this batch than the last because of the lower hopping. OG was 1044, pitched S04 but awoke to no activity - perhaps I hadn't cooled enough - so I've chucked a packet of Nottingham in this morning.
