Pale ale, amber, and/or crystal malts, may use a touch of black malt for color adjustment. May use sugar adjuncts, corn or wheat. English hops most typical, although American and European varieties are becoming more common (particularly in the paler examples). Characterful English yeast. Burton versions use medium to high sulfate water.

Session Notes
Yeast Strain(s) Used: British Ale II
Fermentaion Temp: 68F
Mash schedule more like mini step as I had trouble getting up to temp. Should be ample Beta and Alpha conversion. Burton salts (gypsum) added before first hop addition. Gravity was a little higher than expected (1.064) so I left little more than a gallon with the trub and topped off to 5.5 with filtered water. O.G now at target.
