I have a mate keen on Fullers ESB who does the whole brewing from scratch thing. We have already done a brew in the WW from scratch and it came out great. We are keen to do a comparison between the ESB in the recently released recipes and his Fullers ESB clone recipe, both done in the machine, and a couple of actual bottles of Fullers ESB.
Has anyone tried the Wyeast Fullers ESB 1968 that he is going to use against the Whitelabs WLP002 and the Yeast in the WW recipe which is Nottingham Ale Yeast to make ESB?
I’ve made a london pride clone a few times and used 1968. I use a 1L starter and haven’t had attenuation problems. It’s a good yeast for the WW as it is fast and flocculates amazingly – sediment bottle is like a snow globe during fermentation!
