Greetings brewheads -
I was working on a recipe for a brown ale (in my dreams it would come out like SS Nut Brown, but in the ballpark is ok). I was going to go with the WLP037 Yorkshire Square yeast, but it seems this is ‘seasonal’ or otherwise hard to come by. The same seems to be true for the Wyeast 1469. Any suggestions for a viable alternative? I realize I could just go with a reliable standby like WLP002 and it would work, but was hoping to get some nutty/malty flavor enhancement out of it.
Grain/hop bill thus far:
5 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)
3 lbs Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM)
1 lbs Biscuit Malt (Dingemanns) (24.5 SRM)
1 lbs Crisp Brown Malt (65.0 SRM)
8.0 oz Pale Chocolate Malt (220.0 SRM)
1.00 oz East Kent Goldings (EKG) [5.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 6 17.6 IBUs
0.50 oz Fuggle [4.50 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 7 8.7 IBUs
1.00 oz Fuggles [4.50 %] - Boil 20.0 min Hop 8 9.6 IBUs
Thanks for any advice, you guys rock.
