Default Which Wyeast for an ESB?

Deciding between 1099 and 1335.

Any input?

1187.



Seriously, if you've got both strains in house, I prefer 1335.

Cheers,

I find 1335 pretty anemic as far as English strains go, though I still prefer it over 1099.

And I do love me some Ringwood! Also, Thames Valley II, out now until the end of June is a fantastic yeast for more traditional English beers. Definitely worth trying out.

Actually decided on White Labs WLP005 (supposedly similar to Ringwood) after feedback elsewhere. We're doing a 15g batch and splitting into 3 carbouys.

One will have the WLP005, one will have the Thames Valley, and the third is undetermined (up to one of my brew buddies). It'll be interested to compare them side by side with the same grain bill.
