Can't imagine I'll get to 39 years of brewing as I did not start until I was 43, so congrats on that milestone, especially considering how big the next one is!

I wound up making Martin's Bru'n  Dry Irish Stout. Turned out very well, here's a pic of my first pour, 23 days grain to glass including bottle conditioning, may be a bit young still, but wanted to see how close it was to be ready for today. Brewed February 15, pic is from last Friday.

Yes the discussion in here that it came up in was about BJCP sensory perception study courses where it was described as a great American version of a classic German (I think it was helles, but not certain) either way   I enjoy it and can usually find 30 packs of cans for $12.99-$13.99

Lived in Ohio most of my life without Yuengling. When it came to Ohio, everyone went crazy. I remember having friends. Efire that that would just decide to make the drive to Pick to get it. They would not share much so I never had it. Once it was available, I decided quickly that it was not for me. It's just underwhelming, and I'm not often looking for cheap and lots of volume. Just me, and thanks to a post here a couple years back, I tried Hamm's. If I need cheap and enjoyable, it fits the bill perfectly

Just a quick bump. Does anyone have thoughts on this strain?

Welcome aboard L8YKatie, great bunch of brewers here and lots of opportunities to learn and share. I am also in the ranks of not likely to turn this hobby into a job

I live in Parma, Ohio and I'm a guy = Parmaguy.  Backward, that's yugamrap.
Think I was on here for almost a year before I figured that one out. I was in Cleveland suburbs for almost 15 years and did not catch it right away, too much beer?

Yeast and Fermentation / WLP030 Thames Ale Yeast
« on: March 15, 2017, 10:51:08 AM »
     So last year, I pre-ordered this strain from The Vault, and it is now in production. Delivery is said to be late March to early April. I plan on starting with an ordinary bitter similar to one I made a couple years ago essentially as a smallish starter batch to pitch to Drew's "The Queen's Diamonds" EBW, from Experimental Homebrewing.
     So my first batch is planned for the second week of April. Who has used this yeast, if anyone? What did you make with it, what did you like about it? Mark seemed to be pretty high on this strain back in the day, so I am excited to use it, just looking for suggestions. I have not made many English brews beyond the 2 mentioned above, so what recipes do you all have for something like this?
     From The vault, "Banked back in 2001. Very flocculant strain great for all things English. Great for porters, stouts, ESBs. Lower ester production than most English strains but creates a bigger mouthfeel than most cleaner strains." High flocculation, attenuation from 72%-78%, no temp ranges given. I have emailed them about temps, but that was just a short while ago, no response yet.
     Looking at starting the ordinary bitter with a 60 minute mash at 154°, targeting the top end of the range around 1.039, 28 IBUs from Target, Northdown, and Challenger, dry hopped with EKG. Simple grist of 93.6% Crisp MO and 4.4% C120 (same grist as my previous bitter that turned out to be much higher in OG than planned due to greater than expected efficiency on such a small beer, but a great beer in the end!) That recipe came from someone on here, but I cannot remember who, so I can't give any credit for it, but thanks again.
