I entered my version brewed back in December in a recent local competition and wound up with a blue ribbon in the Robust Porter catagory. My favorite winter brew above all others.

Cool. Thanks. I brewed this and didn't care for the result, but only had wyeast 1098 available. I'm looking for that dry finish like the original next time. I'm a big fan of Safale 05, so I think I will give it a shot.

Did you not care for the yeast results or the recipe in general? I'm thinking about brewing this one as stated in the recipe and i'm hoping before I make 10 gallons that it is a good one.. I love EF in the bottle...

WLP007 is a highly attenuative yeast that will dry this out quite a bit more than S-04 or Nottingham. Try it and you will not be disappointed.

I could only get my hands on W1098 when I brewed, and did not care for the results. While the beer finished out ok, it seemed under-attenuated to me. This is the direct equivalent to WL007, so I'm not sure what went wrong. The beer is fine, but underwhelming, and I don't fault the recipe. Aroma is good, and palate is good. It's just the finish and mouthfeel that don't quite cut it for me. I believe I might actually try using Safale 05 next time and see what happens.

So I brewed up 11 gallons of this over the weekend. Divided it up into 2 fermenters. I hit 1.060 for my OG and I pitched a starter of wlp007 Dry English Ale Yeast in one and a starter of WLP013 London Ale Yeast in the other. Looking forward to trying this and seeing what the 2 yeasts do differently.
