SafAle S-04 11.5g

Fast ferment, high sediment.

WLP002 English Ale Yeast BB: 29/10/2022

English Ale Yeast A classic ESB strain from one of England's largest independent breweries. This yeast is best suited for English style ales including milds, bitters, porters, and English style stouts. This yeast will leave a beer very clear, and will leave some residual sweetness.

WLP007 Dry English Ale Yeast BB: 26/09/2022

Clean, highly flocculent, and highly attenuative yeast. This yeast is similar to WLP002 in flavor profile, but is 10% more attenuative. This eliminates the residual sweetness, and makes the yeast well suited for high gravity ales. It is also reaches terminal gravity quickly. 80% attenuation will be reached even with 10% ABV beers.

Description

We’ve always been huge fans of Proper good beers, and there’s nothing better than that beer when you sitting outside a pub looking out to the coast and hearing the waves crash onto the shore.

Whilst on one of our many trips this year to Cornwall many pints were sunk of Proper Job from St Austell and that lead to a bit of thinking, some head scratching and planning to come up with our own version of the awesome beer that is Proper Job.

Lightish in colour, smooth dry and bitter on the palette and then just enough maltiness to keep you wanting more and more of it. So after a few brews we think we’ve got it close enough for everyone else to enjoy at home.

Comments:

We’ve always been huge fans of Proper good beers, and there’s nothing better than that beer when you sitting outside a pub looking out to the coast and hearing the waves crash onto the shore.

Whilst on one of our many trips this year to Cornwall many pints were sunk of Proper Job from St Austell and that lead to a bit of thinking, some head scratching and planning to come up with our own version of the awesome beer that is Proper Job. It also helped that I got a behind the scenes tour of the brewery whilst down there too and was able to chat to the brewers about the beer itself, see the ingredients were from suppliers that we use too.

The only thing we can’t get for you is the actual yeast, as their house yeast is very specific, however we have offered a selection of yeast for you to choose from, and if you really wanted to get it 100% right you could always buy their beer and build up the yeast from a bottle as they do not pasteurise or use a bottling yeast.

Lightish in colour, smooth dry and bitter on the palette and then just enough maltiness to keep you wanting more and more of it. So after a few brews we think we’ve got it close enough for everyone else to enjoy at home.

You can see us brewing this recipe in our Brew In A Bag video too.

    My I’ve done with WLP007 starter 2L decanted to minimum before pitched. Because usually my beets finish very low mashed at 68 Celsius OG 1.054 after 10 days in frmentor FG 1.012 kegged in corny Keg plus 8 bottles. Personally love Proper Job Cornish IPA and this is very close to original. Tried after five days in Keg is lovely I’m sure will mature well in couple weeks. Cheers

    Just Brew it! Wheatabix malty with unabating foam. I added Malt Millers Aromazyme and got lychee – guava aroma in place of pine and camphor. But it created an incredibly smooth bitterness that works so well with the sweetness left over from SafAle yeast. Went down very well with guests.

    This is a great beer! Used WLP007 as i prefer a drier finish with ipa’s and the yeast didn’t disappoint on bringing that to the table. It’s very close to the original and, I’m currently enjoying a few whilst writing this ; ). I was quite dubious at first as there wasn’t quite as much aroma as you’d expect from the amount of hops used on brew day? But it definitely packs a nice hoppy punch and a nice bit of bitterness at the back end. I’m gonna have to do another for sure and, try a different yeast to get a good comparison. Good job you fella’s at MM headquarters, you done this recipe justice

    Lovely. Bang on style. First brew.in pressure fermenter . Was done in 4 days . Left it a week then kegged after another 4 days . So brew to glass under 2. weeks! Natural carbonation is very nice . Reminds me of the commercial Cornish beers I was drinking last summer. Definitely malty more than happy taste but extremely happy…
