Default Bottle Conditioned Beer List

This list of bottled conditoned beer is from another forum. Some of the beers may have changed and the brewery may have changed from bottle conditioning to filtering as the list is from 2012. So check the bottle for the phrase 'bottle conditioned' before buying (although it may not always state the beer is bottle conditioned even if it is)

Adnams (mini-kegs contain the primary dual-strain, but bottles do not)
Brakspear Oxford Gold, perhaps Triple as well
Cantillon (classic source for diverse lambic cultures)
Chimay
Coniston Bluebird Bitter
Coopers
Courage (some)
D'Achouffe
DeDolle (excellent Belgian multi-strain)
DuPont (classic saison culture, but reportedly a triple-strain, results vary)
Duvel (probably contains primary strain, some dispute)
Fullers Bengal Lancer and 1845 (extremely popular)
Gales HSB
Harvey's Imperial Extra Double Stout
Hook Norton (some Flagship IPA and Double Stout bottles are believed to contain primary strain)
Hopback Summer Lightning
Itchen Valley Godfathers
Kindl Weiss (good Berliner Weiss lacto blend)
Marble?
Maredsous (yes-primary, but same as Duvel)
Marstons (some: Oyster Stout or Tesco's IPA?)Pedigree
Morland Hen's Tooth
Ommegang
Orval (excellent blend of Belgian primary strain + brett)
Ridgeway Bad Elf, Lump of Coal, probably others (brewed by Hepworth, same primary dual strain used in bottles)
Ridleys (some)
Rochefort
Samuel Smith Stingo
Schneider Weiss (supposedly the only hefeweizen bottled with primary strain)
Sharps (some, perhaps the only way to obtain historic Morrells strain. Sharp's 6 vintage blend available at whole foods market http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/list/uk)
Shepherd Neame 1698
Sierra Nevada
St. Austell Proper Job and Black Job - Very clean. Favourable to hop orientated pales and IPA's
Tesco's "Finest Belgian Abbey Ale" by the Huyghe Brewery
Thomas Hardy (some)
Thwaites (some)
Unibroue (a Belgian-style brewery in Canada, very spicy, a mutation of Chimay?)
Wibblers - Most of their beers seem to be bottle conditioned. One of the historic whitbread strains (B i think). You can also buy brewery yeast from their online shop for £3 (at the time of me typing this)
Westmalle
Westvleteren
Widmer Hefeweizen (not a true Hefeweizen strain, Americanized version of historic Zum Uerige alt strain)
Worthington White Shield (probably not primary strain, but a nice high-attenuating strain anyway)
Wye Valley (filtered but then bottle-conditioned with fresh, primary, single-strain)
Youngs Special London Ale

A couple more ideas for fresh yeast:
Many local microbreweries have imperfect filtration, and likely skip reseeding with a secondary yeast, so it's always worth a try.

Just because a beer doesn't specifically state "bottle-conditioned" doesn't automatically rule it out. If you hold it up to the light and see a layer of white at the bottom, that's yeast.

CAMRA have a list of of real ale in bottles (RAIB) to qualify for Real Ale in a Bottle status beer has to be bottle condtioned. From breweries listed not all beers from that parituclar brewery will necessarily be bottle conditioned. I therefore suggest you do further research into individual bottled beers carried by a particular brewery http://www.camra.org.uk/documents/10...5-5613d52ee4f0

From what I've read, for English ale yeasts Fullers, Adnams, Young's, Hop back, Morland and Brakspear are good options. I don't think Oxford Gold is still bottle conditioned.

The Thwaites is a good option too but they were taken over by Marstons earlier this year so I'm not sure whether their bottling is still the same?

From their website, Hepworth's Prospect and Noel are also apparently bottle conditioned

I thought the other day that we need a thread like this. I have been given a pack of 6 Belgian ales all are secondary in the bottle. Will post a list later.

According to this tweet - https://twitter.com/cloudwaterbrew/s...25989657239553 - Cloudwater bottle condition their 750ml beers, and are very happy for homebrewers to harvest their yeast.

I know they have a Vermont ESB in 750ml bottles. I know they've started using vermont in their new IPAs too for extra mouthfeel.

I'll ask 'em what else they use...
