I'm brewing up a special bitter today with this seasonal strain. Went looking for some reviews/thoughts on the yeast, but this was the only thread I found, so I figured I'd try to propogate the 1768 discussion here as my starter on the counter beside me does the same.
So far it's looking exactly like the 1968; cottage cheese vortex. It kind of makes me feel bad for my stir bar. I feel like the poor guy is having to work way harder than usual.
It's a pretty simple malt bill I put together. Maris Otter supplemented with a a little Ashburne Mild, and then some Simpsons C-55. Looking foward to seeing how this PC strain does. Anybody have any thoughts? I'd like to hear about how this strain does differ from 1968 in particular.
