Recipe from Christopher Bowen’s brewing log. This is a recipe that won a gold medal and best of show at the 2007 Great American Beer Festival in the ProAM catagory, a silver medal at the AHA regional and a gold medal at the Kona Beer Festival in 2008. It is based off of a 19th century recipe from Samuel Allsopp and Sons LTD, circa 1860s. English brewers used tons of American hops in many beers during the 19th and 20th centuries. This was dry-hopped with Chinook, but other than that I used all East Kent Goldings. Chinook is a distantly related cultivar of the Petham Golding.
