I've heard 1318 London Ale III is Boddington's and Young's is 1768.  :-\

I hope not.  Boddingtons is in Manchester.  I thought it was Young's yeast.

Not that this is necessarily accurate, but Kristen England's Yeast Strain Comparison Chart indicates that London Ale III is the Boddington's strain (despite the "London" Ale name).  IIRC, I don't think the Milk of Manchester is even brewed in Manchester anymore...could be wrong though.  In any case, I suppose what we would be more interested in is where the strain originated.

What have we learned, gents?  That disclaimers preserve one's credibility!   ;D :P

You've leared well Matt.   ;)  :)

1768 should be very similar to Fuller's. ;)

You mean 1968, of course.

Young's vs. Fullers. The Superbrew championship!  8)

What this has to do with transporting yeast I'll never know but sorry for the thread hijack.

A great yeast for malt predominate ales. Produces light fruit and ethanol aromas along with soft, nutty flavors. Exhibits a mild malt profile with a neutral finish. Bright beers are easily achieved without any filtration. It is similar to our 1968 London ESB Ale but slightly less flocculent.

Speaking of Kristen England, it looks like he's the lastest of our ilk to go pro.  I can't wait to try Pubstitute...sounds very interesting!

Right, I could have sworn I've seen a VSS strain numbered 1768.

Yeah, I should have quoted Ron's post when I started talking about 1768 . . .
I've heard 1318 London Ale III is Boddington's and Young's is 1768.  :-\
