The ATF Fullers 1845 Clone aims to replicate the strong, rich and fruity ale, that was specially commissioned to celebrate 150 years of the Fuller, Smith and Turner partnership. For best results this beer should be bottle conditioned for 100 days. Bottle conditioning should take place in a cool dark environment.
Fullers Brewers Notes
Best poured slowly, 1845 delivers a sweet, fruit cake aroma, a dark tawny colour and a dry finish that sings of spices and raisin. Those fruity characteristics harmonise perfectly with the biscuity malts amid a clever and complex range of subtle flavours, the depth of which you could only find in a live beer fermented in the bottle.
Yeast is not included in the kit. We recommend using Mangrove Jack's Liberty Bell or you could also try Fermentis SafAle S-04.
If crash cooling it is possible to cause the yeast thermal shock, which may be an issue when bottle conditioning, particularly a higher alcohol beer. For extra insurance you may wish to pitch a bottle conditioning yeast such as Lallemand CBC-1 Cask and Bottle Conditioning Yeast.
