I purchased a pitch of a locally produced "Vermont Ale" strain. The information on the website for the company sounds very similar to The Yeast Bay's version of this strain. Fruity, peachy esters that accentuate citrus hop character.
I made a pale ale with only citra hops and it's working away, it tastes pretty good from my hydrometer sample, definitely fruity but that could also be he high level of citra hops I added.
I would like to do another beer with this yeast but I don't want another APA. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on other styles I could try and also if you had any concerns if I was to attempt an English style with this yeast (knowing full well it won't actually have the English character). I was going to use my bitter recipe (18 lbs MO, 2 lbs C90, 1 lb Pale Choc, FWH with EKG at 1 oz per 5 gals). Do you see any reason that it won't be drinkable? I have ordered more yeast but I have time this week to brew and it would be good to get another batch underway.
Any other thoughts on styles that would be reasonable for this yeast besides APA/IPA?
