A great cask conditioned ale strain that produces distinctly malty beers, Wyeast London ESB Ale 1968 Yeast is an extremely flocculent strain that finishes sweeter than most based on it's attenuation level being lower. You will need to rest this beer due to the diacetyl, but after the rest you should be able to produce a bright beer with no filtration. Ales produced with Wyeast London ESB Ale 1968 Yeast tend to be fruity with the fruitiness increased as the fermentation temp increases, 70-74°F (21-23° C).

    Great Yeast

    Great yeast strain, used for a Chocolate Oatmeal Porter. Homebrew Supply shipped the yeast with an ice pack attached to keep it cool and it was less than 3 weeks from the date of manufacture at the time of arrival.
