London ESB is a true English strain that has been selected for its reliable fermentation performance and moderate ester production that allows the various malt and hop aromas to shine through.
London ESB is a brilliant choice not only for brewing Extra Special Bitter but for other authentic heritage UK styles like Pale Ale, Bitter and Mild.
London ESB is best used at a fermentation temperature range between 18-22°C (64-72°F). Fermentation usually takes 3-5 days depending on the recipe and conditions.
“For that classic ESB flavor you need look no further than London ESB yeast from Lallemand – all the characteristics of a classic ESB strain in a convenient dry form” – John Keeling – Head Brewer – Fullers Brewery, London
