A few months back I brewed this beer with some changes- WLP090 San Diego Super Yeast rather than WLP001 California Ale Yeast, and I used Fuggle in place of the Willamette hops. The beer was good, but I think it was slightly more dry than the original version, as I failed to account for the increased attenuation properties of the 090 over the 001. My verdict: stick with the original yeast, the Fuggle worked out fine.
I've currently got two 5 gallon batches of this fermenting, again with subtle changes. I replaced the Willamette addition with Northern Brewer (on hand) then pitched BRY-97 in one batch and WLP002 in the other
, something I've been excited to try. Updates to come!
