(BY640-1318) This is a well-flavored strain isolated from one of the traditional breweries of London. It is a true top-cropping beer yeast so expect the yeast to rise into the krausen at some point during the fermentation. Its biggest asset is that it adds an excellent balance of both malt and hop flavors to the brew. It will give a slight fruity flavor, but for the most part is very laid-back and soft on the palate. The finish of the homebrew will have a note of sweetness.
