That recipe looks great :mug:.

(Though I'm not sure why those uppity ponces in West Yorkshire get their own yeast. They think they're so much better than the rest of Yorkshire. Stupid inbred coal-munching whippet-botherers.)

Where do you get that yeast? What manufacturer?
Browsing Store - WEST YORKSHIRE ALE YEAST

"Available OCT-DEC 2008. From a well-known and highly regarded brewery in Keighley, West Yorkshire England. Full of chewy malt flavor and character, but finishes dry, producing famously balanced beers. Moderate nutty and stone-fruit esters. Bright beers easily achieved within days without filtration.
For production of cask-conditioned bitters, ESB and mild ale. Approx alc tolerance is 9% ABV. Flocculation is high, apparent attenuation is 67-71%. Ferment at 64-72 deg F."

If that's Timothy Taylor's (they're based in Keighley), then people rave about them. Their "Landlord" beer is very well regarded. I didn't know their yeast was for sale - I'll check it out.

This yeast, when it was released last time got me a first place in the National Homebrewing, first round.for Ord. Bitter. Made it to the minibest of show in the second round, but didnt place. Oh well.

Also got me a first place in our clubs British Beer Fest for Ord. Bitter.

I still have some test tubes of this yeast frozen in the freezer. But I also just bought a new pack and plan on making slants.

That's cool! I've got a Timothy Taylor Best Bitter and Landlord recipe, I should make a clone. The Landlord is just Golden Promise, Styrians, and Fuggles according to the recipe.

That's the Knowle Spring brewery?

I just picked this up today. Doing a version of dragon's milk from radical brewing with it. I'm thinking it should turn out well with this yeast (Wyeast 1469), plus I wanted to get a chance to play with a new seasonal strain!

Yep, that's the one. As it's not that far from where I live, I should see if they do brewery tours...
