I have used this yeast before for stout. It brings an interesting oaky ester. In this case I am hoping that it will improve a robust porter that is "missing something" after previous batches fermented with Chico strain. Stats on this are lower attenuating.

My favorite British yeast for British style ales. Easy to control ester production with lower fermentation temps and leaves some body in the beer.

Amazing Yeast
I brewed a 3.5 gallon 1.111 OG RIS. Mashed at 153 and fermented steady at 66-67. This temp has been controlled by heat and freezer with thermowell inside the wort so I know it has not moved beyond this temp. I pitched a starter of 400 million with this yeast and it took it down to 1.022 in 3 days!!! Was not expecting that. Bubbling has slowed much since but still moving. Beer removed for Gravity reading has great flavor but not getting the oaky flavor others have had.

Ice pack not included
This was my first time ordering yeast from MoreBeer and I missed the line about ordering an ice pack. Now I have no idea how my yeast is and all over a $.79 ice pack. Just include it and charge me for the ice please, this is stupid. Every other place I've ever ordered yeast from includes it so I don't have to think about it.

Response from MoreFlavor
Thank you for your feedback. This is something that has been discussed at length internally, and we decided to not include an ice pack with every purchase of yeast. Depending on the time of year and where a particular customer is located, an ice pack may not always be necessary. By leaving the ice pack as an optional add-on, we're able to offer the yeast at the lowest price possible. We apologize for the confusion and any inconvenience this may have caused.

Great for porter
Won 1st place at NHC Regional this year using it in my Brown Porter.

First time used
Was worried during fermination because beer was smelling overly oaky. This eventually disappeared and make a pleasant beer. Used with Firestone Walker pale 31 kit.

Great yeast
My first time using it. I was worried at first when the starter and beer smelled oaky. But after fermentation was over it was gone. Fermented @ 64 then bumped up to 68. Very clean. Next time I may start higher to get some more flavor.

Good for certain style
Personally I feel this yeast fits a narrow windows of beers. I was making a Eng. Brown, and just thought it lacked a little. I will check my recipe before I totally blame this yeast though.

Great for Engish ales
Different profile than the English Ale yeast. Does not attenuate as much, which is good for certain profiles and styles.
