PD - I've wasted every yeast cake up until now. Too lazy (and fridge-constrained) to wash yeast. Thought I would give the yeast cake method a go. However, stuck on the black-and-tan idea and plan to bottle the pale ale and keg the stout.
Ed - So I also need to attempt to get British DME/LME (e.g. Munton & Fison). Also, would Bass be an English Pale Ale or an ESB, technically?
I'm kind of thinking Poindexter's hybrid beer might not be bad... British extract (if available), Fuggles, and the wrong yeast (cake). I want the the pale ale to be a BIG beer with a high FG (to facilitate cleaner B&Ts)... so the yeast cake would be nice for a big, high OG beer.
BTW, all this got started when my friends decided my last porter and golden ale made a great "mud beer" combination. Oddly enough, they were right.
