Notes

See http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/can-you-brew-recipe-fullers-esb-178991/ and http://www.thebrewingnetwork.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=20555&start=8#_thread for more info.

Fermentation: Chill wort to 17ºC, let it rise to 20ºC. At 50% attenuation, lower temp to 17ºC until done.

In my opinion, Wyeast 1968 is better than WLP002 for this. But the most important thing I found is that English Crystal 80ºL, not American Crystal 80ºL, gives it a little sweeter, less caramel, flavor that was missing when I used American C-80 and it's significantly more red, since Fuller's ESB has a ruby color to it.
