The AHS Limited Edition English Special is a full bodied moderately hoppy ESB. The recipe features a Maris Otter back bone and 3 types of crystal grains (English Crystal, Crystal 40L and Crystal 150L). The grain bill imparts a robust malt flavor that is well balanced by Nugget and Kent Golding hops. The limited factor in this limited edition recipe kit is the Yeast. We have designed this recipe to work with each of the January 2017 Wyeast PC English yeast releases. Each yeast will impart its own unique characteristics to the beer, making each different brew a unique and delicious ESB. So, buy three recipes, one with each yeast, and you'll have the full experience...

High in attenuation and flocculation. Low to moderate ester production in fermentation, letting malt and hops come through, finishes crisp and slightly tart.

    WYEAST 1882 Private Collection Thames Valley II - WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Both attenuative and highly flocculent strains creates bright beers not requiring filtration. It is recommended to give this strain a thorough diacetyl rest after fermentation is complete.
