"CLOSE YOUR EYES, TAKE A SIP AND YOU'RE IN EDINBURGH!"
This was my first go with this yeast, using a new recipe for a Scottish 80/-.
It fermented fabulously and relatively quickly. Attenuation was just as described. Flocculation was great, this is a clear, ruby amber ale. The ale has a wonderful slightly oaky Ester (not as forward as the London Ale strain) and the malt complexity shines through mightily while the hops balance it out at the end. Great yeast, great brew. Will be using this strain again and again.
