    Nice, I am brewing an ESB this weekend. It’s only the 2nd batch of homebrew that I have done but am loving the hobby. I am still using malt extracts but hope to switch to all grain brewing soon.

      @brian good luck with the esb. I too love the style and the obsession.. err hobby even more. I used malt extracts for years, made some great beer. It’s a great way of brewing beer without the extra equipment.

    I am impressed…2 brews in a week!

    I agree with your sentiments on a simple additive free beer….the flaws are more noticeable.

    One of my next brews is going to be a tweaking of my ESB. It’s one of my favorite styles as it is very drinkable. How do you like dragons milk? I thought it was pretty good.

      @nate My supply of home brew is down to a 1/4 corney of tripel. Needed to get some brews rolling. Just ordered ingredients for 3 more batches, Roggenbier, Dunkelweizen, and Wit. Plus The sour Saison I’ll be making in a week or so.

      the Dragons Milk, was amazing. really impressed. It was my first barrel aged beer from New Holland. I’ll have a review of it up on Thursday I think.

    I have been behind in brewing too…budget/new baby. I am planning on hitting it hard early in 2010.

    Mike gave me a generous gift, so I’ll be brewing this weekend…I haven’t formulated the recipe, but I’ll be shooting for a flemish brown style…maybe.

    I hope you win the competition!

    Not yet…hopefullly though. I’m waiting to hear back from a guy who runs a small local winery. If not, I’ll attempt to cheat with chips and just end up with a sour beer.

      I have my Oak Barrel on it’s way from mexico. haven’t decided how to condition it yet. Nothing, Whiskey, tequila, wine. I’m leaning toward tequila right now. here’s a picture of it:

I brewed the Coffee Stout earlier in the week and now I’m experimenting a bit on a simple ESB. Often times it is the simple recipes that can be the hardest to do well … Original post:  Simply Beer – ESB Home Brewing Session […]
