#64: ESB

Next on the free ingredient extravaganza...

The WY-1968 (London ESB) yeast had the oldest manufacturer date.  Not yet expired, but within a month or so, and thus I started with this.  Seeing that it was an ESB yeast, I figured I'd try to make something similar to that.  I decided, since I had a couple cans of the Amber HME, to start with that, with a flame-out addition of Styrian Goldings.  OG was off (as expected) from their anticipated OG (not sure why they overestimate them so), but no worries...
