Read in Zymurgy that Wyeast is releasing the WY1469 (West Yorkshire Ale) for the fall.

I'm stoked! Love this yeast.

Hope that they make it part of their permanent collection.

I've had a love - hate thing with this yeast. Some batches it worked wonderfully and others not so much. Looks like I'll be trying it out again this fall, Oct-Dec?

What is this yeast? Doesn't have detail info on their site. Fall is a good time for english beers, so I've been on a kick lately.

It is the Timothy Taylor and Black Sheep yeast strain. I've had problems with it flocculating in the past and can throw ALOT of fruity esters closer to 70F.

Wyeast 1469-PC West Yorkshire Ale Yeast
Profile: 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.

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

Interesting how it says "reliably flocculent" but you say you've had issues with that... what gives?

Anyone else have experience with this yeast? I may want to try it.

More information here. The short story is that it makes excellent beer, but has some issues that make working with it more challenging than other ale yeast.

I love this yeast, I even saved some from last year and froze it.

Me too! It worked great on a pale ale. Not sure if my frozen yeast were still viable though, so I'm glad I can buy it fresh again.

Cool. I might give it a try once again since it produced a good bitter last time I used it and I will have a fermentation fridge this time around.

Actually I was curious of that myself since it had been frozen since January. I got it out and tossed into a starter last week and it took 3 days but sure enough it started up and fermented out the wort. Its back in the fridge now.
