 * Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato.  High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato.

  The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style.  As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temp as desired.  Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45˚ – 58˚F.  If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65-68˚F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs).

    This is a fantastic British yeast. Leaves the nice malty flavours you get from using Marris Otter malt and some lovely aroma esters. Fast fermentation and good attenuation in the Special Bitter I brewed using this yeast. I also used it to give some more character to an American IPA which I have just tapped and I gotta say it is superb in this style, just adds another dimension. Will definately use this yeast again.

    Used this in an English Bitter instead of my usual WY1469 or WY1968. Definitely lets the malt shine through, restrained esters compared compared to the above yeasts. Very slight diacetyl. Great flocculation, produced a bright beer for me. Very nice yeast overall, certainly worth trying out.

  3. Rated 4 out of 5


    Used in a chocolate style porter instead of 1335. Very strong ferment and did not get over fruity like some other strains. As above showcased the malts. Very clear beer considering the malt bill. This will definitely be purchased again for more English style Ales.
