Extra Special Bitter Beer Recipe Kit

SKU 1020



Product Details

Think of this as a British Bitter squared - more malt and more hops equals higher gravity, bigger body, more bitterness, and more intense flavors and aromas.

A more complex beer than an "ordinary" low-gravity bitter, an ESB is a showcase for high-quality hops and brewing skill, meant to be enjoyed with consideration rather than merely quaffed. Our kit pours with a rich red color and white head and pronounced aromas of hop and fruit.

If you enjoyed Classic ESB, Invictus ESB, or Red Hood ESB (Red Hook), you'll love this kit!

ESB extract ingredient kit

Everything was received as expected and brewing and bottling days went well. Will be sampling the product in about a week, expecting excellent results.

Good beer.

Just completed brewing and aging this kit. Tastes good, not quite as good as Invictus that I really liked but cannot get any more. Maybe this will taste even better when fully aged. So far it is good.

The beer is currently fermenting. Evaluation of the kit at this time is difficult at best.
