4.2kg MO
0.2kg Crystal pale
0.08kg Chocolate ( although i might reduce this just a bit)

28 g Northdown 8.5% ( 60 mins)
30 G First gold 7.5%( 15 mins)
20 g Crystal 3.5% ( 1 min)
Protofloc last 15 minutes

it gives a colour of around 12.4 SRM IBU 32 and ABV around 4.1%

What are the reccommendations on the yeast for this one?

I have some wyeast 1068 ESB to try, and also the standard S04.I might also have some London yeast around too.

This should be quite fresh in all honestly what with the crystal in there right at the end.

I am a little nervous about moving away from a tried and trusted yeast though ( a friend of mine just made a 10 g brew and used a yeast that killed all tatse really....)

I would like to keep the taste fresh.

Anythoughts?

Dave

your recipe doesn't really look like a bitter or ESB type recipe. Either the s-04 or the London look like they would be more in line with what your making. Just my opinion tho. cheers anyway!

Think i'll try the London in this case.

This is a fresh beer for easy drinking and enjoying with friends.

I was just wondering if the different yeast would do anything for the taste.

s04 is an easy one though so i'll see whats in the fridge.

thanks
