Notes

Named after the song FUG by the UK funk band Cymande, and because it uses lots of Fuggles hops.

Shepherds Delight added for ONLY the last 7 minutes of the mash. This adds a lot of colour to the wort.

OG: 1.050 FG: 1.014 Slow to clear during cold crash.

Result: A very genuine Yorkshire Bitter. Reminiscent of 1990's Sheffield pubs... stale smoke, sticky tables and docile dogs.

This beer would benefit from a generous dry hopping with East Kent Goldings to lighten the pronounced bitterness.
