WLP007 Dry English Ale yeast


This is my best beer to date. I brewed it back in May and now in December it still is brimming with tropical fruit hop character. The attached photos show the billowing head which just won't quit. A half hour into the pint and there is still a half inch of head on the beer, with superb lacing to match. I blame the flaked barley for this. The malt bill may be a bit complex, but it really, really works with this beer. Not too muddled a malt character, nor too overly sweet. The 007 yeast brought this down further than I expected, and the beer really benefited from it. Dry and crisp, this will be in heavy rotation.

Pardon the lackluster pictures. Taken with my crappy phone.

You credit the good head to the flaked barley, but you don't list flaked barley in the recipe. I am a big fan of flaked barley. I brew with semi-hard water, and add .5# flaked barley and .5# carapils to every beer I brew. Can you tell me how much you used here?
