That's even assuming I can get hold of a bottle of the ESB. Might just buy some from malt miller as Garethhuwwilliams taste profile description sounds great for what I want it for

Yeah, only really worth it if you're desperate to try the ESB. As much as I love Cloudwater, and as much as I'm prepared to drop good money for good beer, their 750ml prices are prohibitive for me.

As an aside, all of the Weird Beard beers I've had come with a ****-tonne of yeast in the bottles. Had a bottle of their 'A Lemon Tree My Dear Watson' tonight and about an eighth of the bottle was cake! The 'No More Bright Ideas' was the same. They just seemingly dump everything from the FV straight into the bottle

Sorry mate, can't help you there.

They seem pretty open and honest on social media and their blog etc - might be worth firing them an email? info@weirdbeardbrewco.com

All I do know is that I've not had a bad beer from them!

Anyone know anything about the yeast in Little Valley Brewery beers? I've got a bottle of their Vanilla Porter to have tonight and it says it's bottle conditioned. Worth keeping or not?

Never heard of the brewery myself but you could always fire off a quick email to ask them what yeast they use and it's history Yeast strains often move from brewery to brewery with the head brewer. Or it could be from a yeast lab or even just a dried strain

I really enjoyed drinking Chimay Blue when in Belgium some time back although at 9% you only have a few! It's in our list here (in the OP) and Chimay site says its naturally conditioned. Tesco apparently sell it (although I've yet to try them) but has anyone tried to culture the yeast from it?
