Trying a new yeast out. Bought an out of date vial from MO Malt Supply (1/2 price) of the following.
* WLP006 Bedford British
Ferments dry and flocculates very well. Produces a distinctive ester profile. Good choice for most English style ales including bitter, pale ale, porter, and brown ale.
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 65-70°F
Alcohol Tolerance: Medium
I pitched it in a quart of 1.034 wort a couple days ago. Will pitch this in a half gallon of 1.034 wort today. The whole lot will then go to make a batch of porter, then I think I'll try to recreate the old ale on top of the resulting yeast cake. The fun never stops!
