Brewday - 24/05/2017 Best Bitter

Not Craft Beer

After the excitement of making my own invert sugar I felt inspired to brew a traditional English Best Bitter, using just fuggles hops as I had some spare.

Recipe (BIAB):

  • Mash for 1 hr at 67°C
  • Boil for 60 mins
  • Mash water volume 30lt
  • Maris Otter 3.5kg
  • Carapils 125g
  • Black malt 40g 
  • Invert Sugar No. 1 450g (30 mins)
  • Fuggles 50g (60 mins)
  • Fuggles 50g (15 mins)
  • Irish Moss 1 tsp (15 mins)
  • Gervin GV12 English Ale Yeast 11g pack
  • Recipe in Brewers Friend


I got 23lt in the fermenter, the OG was 1.045 (exactly as expected!) and hopefully it should finish around 1.011 (4.5% abv).
