This is our interpretation of Emerson’s Bookbinder. In Emerson’s own words Bookbinder is:
A wonderfully drinkable interpretation of a classic English ale. Bookbinder is a blend of four malts combined with two classic Nelson grown European hops (Fuggles and Riwaka). The beer pours an attractive reddish brown, with a cream coloured head. Bookbinder has a sweet, perfumey, malt and hop aroma with a soft, malty, fruit and vinous palate that is both full flavoured and refreshing with a long, gently drying finish.
Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using one packet of Fermentis Safale S-04.
The grain bill for the 24 L Batch recipe is under 4kg and under 8kg for the G70 48 L Batch. It is recommended you consider using the Grainfather Micro Pipework, particularly for the G70 48 L Batch, which has been designed for use with smaller grain bills.
