Not yet, but I ordered some on a whim during the Brewmasters Warehouse Cyber Monday sale. My wife’s a fan of English Bitter, so I thought I’d give it a try, but have no recipe. I'd also be interested in reading anyone else’s plans.

Wyeast 1469 PC West Yorkshire Ale

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.

Attenuation 67-71%
Alc. Tolerance 9%
Flocculation high
Temperature Range 64-72F (18-22C)

This sounds interesting, but there's no mention of optimum temperature ranges to promote it.

yeah, I generally don't pay too much attention to the listed temp ranges.

The last ESB i made i used Thames Valley II. I fermented that at 64F and it was incredible.

I brewed a clone of Black Sheep Riggwelter using this yeast. The ester profile was absolutely amazing. I fermented it at 66F, I believe. I drank it really fast and am now cleaning the keg

I brewed a Bitter with it last weekend and have high hopes. I plan on washing this yeast and saving as well.

I brewed this recipe a few weeks ago. I am about to keg it. But from the few samples I have had, it is a really great yeast. The fruit notes, especially peach, are great.

I tried my ESB recipe with it and love the flavor. Very malt forward with nice esters. The toffee is palpable with this one. I also found it to be nicely flocculent.

In all, a fantastic yeast for British milds and bitters. I wish they would make it a year around offering.
