Getting ready to brew Lee's Mild this weekend from the The Craft of Stone Brewing Co.: Liquid Lore, Epic Recipes, and Unabashed Arrogance book. I wanted to use WLP007, but the LHBS was out. Then I remember I had some Wyeast 1469 and thought this might be a good substitute for the style. I am just curious if anyone has any experience with the yeast and any recommendations for mash temp and most importantly fermentation temp? The recipe calls for a single infusion mash at 154F . Here is what Wyeast's website says about the strain:
Wyeast 1469-PC West Yorkshire Ale Yeast
Beer Styles: Blonde Ale, English IPA, Extra Special/Strong Bitter (English Pale Ale), Oatmeal Stout, Southern English Brown, Special/Best/Premium Bitter, Standard/Ordinary Bitter, Sweet Stout
Profile: This strain produces ales with a full chewy malt flavor and character, but finishes dry, producing famously balanced beers. Expect moderate nutty and stone-fruit esters. Best used for the production of cask-conditioned bitters, ESB and mild ales. Reliably flocculent, producing bright beer without filtration.
Alc. Tolerance 9% ABV
Temp. Range 64-72°F (18-22°C)
