Yeast for English Barleywine?

(1/3) > >>

yeastmaster:
What yeast strains do people out there like for an English style Barleywine with and OG >1.100?

hoser:
WLP007-Dry English Ale yeast.  Get all of the goodness of WLP002 and WLP001 all in one!  Just be sure to keep your temps in check!  This yeast likes to run hot and works hard and fast.  You don't want to end up with a lot of fusels.  Pitch at 64F.  Free rise to 66F. Hold x 24 hours and then gradually let it rise to 68-69F over 3 days.

hopfenundmalz:
Wyeast 1028.

erockrph:
I've actually used WY1762 (Abby II) with good results. If you keep your fermentation temps down it brings a restrained plumminess that I really enjoy in an English BW. It's one hell of an attenuator too.
