My favorite British yeast
Perfect for any English ale. I've used it in stouts, porters, browns and bitters. Makes a great, smooth, rich, and tasty beer. I've tried them all, and this is still my favorite.

London Ale for Nut Brown
I've used the London ale yeast a couple of times brewing an English style nut brown ale. I've used a starter each time. The yeast seems a bit slow getting going as compared the American Ale yeast, but the performance on my beer has been very good. It has a nice clean flavor and the beer has turned out very good. I will continue to use this yeast for this beer.

Slow but reliable
Certainly takes its time, but produces great flavors.

Great performer
Did a look back at my brew log since 2002 to get a sense of what yeast to use in my upcoming batches of British style beer. I noticed that this yeast produced the best reviews of any strain and no reported problems. Reviews indicated rich, fruity beers with no off-flavors, even when conditions weren't ideal (like mid-summer). In comparison with 1968 and 1469, where I had problems with fermentation, thin beer (1469) and diacetyl (1968). I intend to revisit 1468 and do a comparison brew with a batch of bitter to see if the thinness wasn't caused by other issues.

Nice Yeast
I used this in a vanilla porter which had a high OG. It took a day to get started but once it did; wow! I'd suggest doing a starter first.

Nice Attenuation
Just took FG on a British IPA we brewed. I used this yeast with a starter and the attenuation was 87%. I sampled the beer and it was tasty.

Great Yeast
Started a bit slow - even using a 2 liter starter. However, fermentation went smoothly and well. I used it for a pumpkin ale and it worked perfectly.

Good results
Started slowly - even using a 2 liter starter. However, fermentation went smoothly and well after that. I used it in a pumpkin ale and the results were excellent.
