Taddy Porter Yeast?

(1/2) > >>

Pawtucket Patriot:
I've been working on approximating Sam Smith's Taddy Porter for the past few months and have had a difficult time nailing the yeast profile.  After some searching, I noticed that Wyeast has a seasonal strain called West Yorkshire (or something to that effect) that is possibly the Sam Smith's strain.  Unfortunately, it's not available right now.  Are there other yeasts that will get me in the ballpark?  Maybe Wyeast Ringwood?  London ESB?  Whitbread?  At this point, I'm not terribly interested in making a perfect clone of the Taddy Porter.  I'd be happy with something relatively close.  Suggestions?

I _think_ that yeast is one that Wyeast is going to release full time after the first of the year.  You could email Brian Perkey (brian@wyeastlab,com) and ask him.

Thanks, Denny.  Will do.

The West Yorhsire is the Timothy Taylor yeast, WY-1469 .  That is a really good yeast!

I think they had a VSS Yorkshire Square yeast, and as San Smiths uses the stone squares, that may be it.

Ah, ok.  Thanks for the info!  I bet the Timothy Taylor yeast would be reasonably close, but would probably throw off a bit more diacetyl.
