Looking forward to trying this and seeing what the 2 yeasts do differently.
Any verdict yet? I'm going to brew this up this weekend, and am still trying to decide what yeast to use.

Thanks!

I used Nottingham (because I'm too cheap and lazy to use liquid yeast). I think its every bit as good as Great Lakes version.

I used 1098, which shows as the WY equivalent to 007. I'm going to try Us-05 or WY 1272 next time.

So I made a 10 gallon batch of this back on June 7th I pitched a starter of WL Dry English in half and a starter of London Ale in the other half and after 3 weeks in the bottle i chilled one of the Dry English Ale version down and gave it a sample. I think this is very close to to Edmund Fitzgerald which is one of my favorite brews. Nice chocolate and malt background. Just a hint of that special b raisin flavor comes through and the nice dry yet somewhat creamy finish keeps you coming back for another sip. This is a very nice recipe ohiobrewtus!! Can't wait to compare this one with the other batch and I think I will go buy a 6er of the real thing to compare all 3 this weekend. Thanks again for sharing!

just tried the commercial version this weekend and loved it. im a big fan of the dry finish and think i'll have to brew this one up soon. for those who have used nottingham for this recipe, did it dry it out like the commercial version or was it still a little sweet?

Ok so I am going to make this great beer today, but here is my issue. I was given Nugget as sub for the Centennial. I did not even think to question it, but now I am wondering if that will be way to much. I know a cascade would be acceptable, and might have some to sub, but wanted to get ya'lls thoughts. This will be a 5 gal batch.

Thanks
John

I know I'm a bit late since it appears that you probably already brewed this earlier today, but Nugget is a perfectly acceptable substitute for Centennial.

Thanks, I went ahead and went with what I was given. It was not a perfect day, but I made beer. I was off on y boil off, so I was short about half a gallon, but I hit all my temps, and all my gravities. I could not help but drink what was left in my kettle when I was done, oh so tasty. I will be doing a side by side with a friend who came by today to help in a few weeks. He loves EFP, so he will be picky. Should be interesting.

Thanks for a great recipe, Ohio!!!!
