Congrats Matt/Jake.

I'll make this during the summer for the fall (that's when I like to get my malt on after lots of summer lagers).

Thanks. FWIW, this is Jake (crappy cell phone pic):


He helps by eating any spilled spent grains.

I brewed this yesterday with Maris Otter since that's what I had in bulk. I've never brewed an English ale with a German yeast so I'm really looking forward to this!

That's a fine looking recipe and one I would not have imagined. I'm not familiar with the European Ale strain. What does that contribute?

It's just a low attenuation/high floc strain that leaves a malty brew. I've never been one to stick to british yeast for british beers, german yeasts for german beers, etc. I'd rather just choose the yeast based on it's characteristics regardless of where it 'originated'. This yeast shares some of 'british yeast' characteristics.
