Wyeast 1882-PC Thames Valley II
Anyone know what's up with this yeast? I thought regular Thames Valley was the Brakspear yeast, so what is this?

I'm brewing an ESB with it:

9.25 Maris Otter
1.25 Simpsons Medium Crystal

unfortunately no EKG, so I'm using US Goldings.

9.0 HBU @60
4.5 HBU @0

I need to find this one now, my favorite English Yeast is the White labs equilivent of Thames Valley I.

Let us know how it goes. I'd be curious to hear.

was a champ in the starter

pitched saturday, was going like crazy that night and sunday morning.

Yeah, mine too. Did a starter Thursday evening and it had completely flocculated out by brewtime Sunday morning. Pitched it into the fermenter at 2pm and it was happily bubbling away by 6pm.

what'd you brew jkarp?

i was thinking of washing this and making an English IPA....but that would be two very similar beers right after another.....

It was actually for my neighbor. He found a recipe for a mild he wanted to try. I'm sufficiently impressed with this yeast though that I may follow this mild up with a porter on the yeast cake.
