Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: 1469PC   
Yeast Starter: 1L for 3338   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.055   
Final Gravity: 1.014   
IBU: 34   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90   
Color: 12 SRM   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 days @ 67   
Tasting Notes: My go-to yeast for this beer is the commonly available Wyeast 1968   

I have brewed this ESB several times, and I'm familiar enough with the base recipe to begin experimenting with different yeast strains. My go-to strain is 1968: London ESB; this strain is highly flocculant and I'm always thrilled to see just how bright the beer is after 21 days.

As you'll note in the recipe below, I'm next brewing this ESB on Saturday utilizing a VSS release from Wyeast: 1467PC West Yorkshire and intend to wash and bank this yeast after the ferment.

Description from Wyeast:

Quote:
West Yorkshire Ale 1469PC Activator. This strain produces ales with a full chewy malt flavor and character, but finishes dry, producing famously balanced beers. Expect moderate nutty and stone-fruit esters. Best used for the production of cask-conditioned bitters, ESB, and mild ales. Reliably flocculent, producing bright beer without filtration.

Just harvested the West Yorkshire yeast this morning when racking Old Boot over to the keg. One of the most viscous pure yeast slurries I've seen- like Bisquick!
