Default 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

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.

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.
