Saw this at the LHBS and picked up a packet of it along with Denny's. Plan on using it next week probably in an ESB since I already have plenty of stout. Montanaandy

Gonna rack my best bitter to secondary for dry-hopping today. Will provide an update this afternoon.

Going to wash and save it for another batch. Not sure what yet though.

I'll be sampling my Mild today and bottling the Porter I did on the subsequent yeast cake.

Be sure to let us know your thoughts after tasting that mild!

I'll be interested in hearing about the mild too.

I'm thinking that the fruitness of the yeast would be appealing (to my palate, at least) to round out the maltiness. I used London III (Wyeast 1318) once and like the hint of sweetness it contributed.

Results are in (if flat 2 week old beer is the desired result)

Recipe:

Type: All Grain Best Bitter
Date: 15/02/2009
Batch Size: 5.50 gal
Boil Size: 6.85 gal
Boil Time: 60 min
Brewhouse Efficiency: 67.00 (not my best day, but acceptable)
Measured Original Gravity: 1.044 SG
SG Measured Final Gravity: 1.011 SG
AA%: 75
Actual Alcohol by Vol: 4.30 %

Bitterness: 35.2 IBU
Est Color: 9.7 SRM

Ingredients:

8.50 lb Gambrinus ESB Malt (Pale Malt) (4.0 SRM) Grain 87.18 %
0.50 lb 70-80 deg. L - Crystal/Caramel (75.0 SRM) Grain 5.13 %
0.50 lb Victory Malt (25.0 SRM) Grain 5.13 %
0.25 lb Wheat Malt (2.0 SRM) Grain 2.56 %


1.20 oz Whole - Northern Brewer [7.20 %] (60 min) 31.7 IBU
1.00 oz Whole - Williamette [4.80 %] (10 min) 3.5 IBU
1.00 oz Pellet - Fuggles [4.70 %] (Dry Hop 7 days)

1.00 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 10.0 min)

1 Pkgs Thames Valley II (Wyeast Labs #1882) [Starter 1000 ml] Yeast-Ale

Tasting notes:

- Malty, slightly fruity aroma
- Slightly sweet, slightly fruity flavour; stone fruit does come through
slightly, as per Wyeast's profile. Still comes through dry overall.
- Bitterness comes through nicely; glad that I decided to dry-hop for a bit
more balance.
- No diacetyl noticable.

Overall impression (at this stage):

- A nice balance of a touch of fruit and dry maltiness. Bitterness comes through well. Will see how dry-hopping changes things.

Hope this helps.

Reason: Typo - 1 l starter, not a 2 l starter

2 Liter starter for a 1044 beer? This yeast sounds intriguing. I've been looking at a yeast for an ESB with an OG in the 1060 range that I want to oak for a month.

Typo

It was a 1 litre starter. I usually make 2 litre starters, so force of habit.

well i've pulled a few pints of this by now. again it was an ESB:

1.054 -> 1.013

9.25 MO
1.25 Simpsons Medium

60 minute mash at 154F.

2oz US Goldings at 60
1oz US Goldings at 1

primary for 3 wks, keg for 2wks.

It's excellent. Little fruitiness on the nose. mouthfeel is fantastic. little sweetness, very malty, low hop by design (~29 IBUs) but they're there. perfect session beer, wonderful color.

I've made a bitter before using WY1098. I've never used Thames Valley I, so I don't know how this compares. Ridiculously flocculant, but i didn't have to rouse to achieve target FG or anything. If I had done some harvesting before, I would have tried it with this, but I didn't think it was a good idea to have my first go-around with this yeast.

Whoops, just realized I never updated this thread. Mild with the 1882 was good. The porter however was outstanding. Flocs like crazy and just the perfect fruitiness for a porter. Wasn't over-attenuated for a yeast cake pitch either. 74% attenuation for a FG of 1.018.
