White Labs Yeasts
WLP037 Yorkshire Square Ale Yeast (Samuel Smith)
This yeast produces a beer that is malty, but well-balanced. Expect flavors that are toasty with malt-driven esters. Highly flocculent and good choice for English pale ales, English brown ales, and mild ales.
Attenuation: 68-72%
Flocculation: High
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 65-70F
Alcohol Tolerance: Medium-High

WLP006 Bedford British (Charles Wells)
Ferments dry and flocculates very well. Produces a distinctive ester profile. Good choice for most English style ales including bitter, pale ale, porter, and brown ale.
Attenuation: 72-80%
Flocculation: High
Optimum fermentation temperature: 65-70F
Alcohol Tolerance: Medium

WLP038 Manchester Ale Yeast
Top-fermenting strain that is traditionally good for top-cropping. Moderately flocculent with a clean, dry finish. Low ester profile, producing a highly balanced English-style beer.
Attenuation: 70-74%
Flocculation: Medium-High
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 65-70F
Alcohol Tolerance: Medium-High

Now THAT'S a good answer! And, it figures it'd take a Sullie to say it.

Wadda ya know.... I've been reading the Classic Beer style series book on mild (while drinking one of course). Great read!

Kudos for posting a recipe.

Thanks man.

Do you think that will make a mild ale. I have no fear about playing with things a little. It doesn't have to be ultra-traditional. I would like to have two similar recipes using the same ingredients for the most part that come out as two distinctly different ales in seperate classifications.

I'd like to see someone rework that into a bitter but using the Charles Wells yeast in the stead of the Samuel Smith, and perhaps the Bravo hops and Styrians.

I just read that Pale Ale, Mild Ale, and working through Brown Ale. I am glad they made Mild Ale and Brown Ale seperate. Other than that I got a biography of GK Chesterson by Pearce of Ignatius Press that is holding my attention.

I've wondered about using a Hochkurz mash (even though it is German).

138F; 15 minutes.
145F, 45 minutes.
156F; 30 minutes.

(Thanks Kaiser)

Oh man, I LOVED that book. It even had me on the verge of tears at the end. What a great read about a great man.

As to the original question, I'd brew some beer, an ESB and a Mild, and an Old Ale (an ESB that you leave in secondary for six months or longer).
