“Great for Malty English Styles”

By: Brewsed | Date: Oct., 22nd 2014 | Beer(s) Brewed: Premium Bitter

Used this yeast on a premium bitter (ESB) recipe that I normally brew using WLP002 English Ale. The main difference was in the accentuation of the malt character. The WLP002 English Ale version was good, but using this Bedford British yeast really brought out the Maris Otter and Crystal malt character I was looking for. Pretty clean profile fermenting at a temp of 63F and letting slowly rise to 68F toward the end. Only a slight hint of diacetyl, which I normally don't like, shows through yet somehow makes it seem more English and more delicious. I would definitely recommended this yeast for any English Ale especially flavored stouts and porters.
