I haven't been able to get a hold of that one yet.  I sure would like to try it sometime

I really like WY1469 for my lower gravity English ales.

For an Old Ale last year, I pitched WY1469 for the first 48hrs of fermentation and then finished it off with WLP007.  A lot of English character with a dry finish.  It received honorable mention in the Old Ale COC a couple of months back.

Sounds delicious, hoser. I may have to try that for my next one.

I was actually quite surprised by the attenuation 1469 preformed in my barleywine, which was 80%. I aged with a touch of oak, that has integrated into a very complex brew.

After a few generations of use with 1469 in bitters, I usually make a barleywine, or old ale with it.
