Default Gales Yeast

I've just started culturing up this strain from a bottle of bottles conditioned Gales HSB. Anyone else had a go at this strain? I think Wyeast 1332 Northwest Ale was originally supposed to be the Gales strain too

I've got a clone of Gales Festival Mild in the fv at the moment, using the Wyeast 1332 you mention. I thought about culturing it up, as according to the Fullers website they kept the Gales yeast after they bought out and closed the original brewery and use it for the Gales branded beers, but I didn't realise that the HSB was bottle conditioned.

It's a fairly new one on me too. I cant remember where I found out HSB was bottle conditioned.

I think this might be a true top cropping yeast. I'm only at the first 100ml stage and already it's got a decent little krausen on it. Normally I just do the first two step ups on faith as I dont normally get any indication at all that theirs any yeast and just assume there is then carry on to the third step up

Yes, but I never really look on bottles to see if the beer is bottle conditioned. I probably picked it up from another forum somewhere or other. And yes it's a nece brew. I might have go at one of the gales recipes from BYOBRA using the yeast

Having come home from work, I had a look in my little jar and there's quite a lot of yeast in there for this stage. There must have been quite a bit in the bottle

Oh I always check. Generally so I know to avoid as I'm impatient and dont usually like waiting a few days to settle after ive bought from the shop/disturbed the sediment etc

I'm now up to step up 3 (250ml/1.040) with this. I'm going to be making a full 23L brew length bitter in a couple of weekends time so I should have enough cells grown for that

Because of work I havent been stepping this up as fast as I could have but I've just finished making up the last but one step up. I'm brewing a Bitter on sat and pitching yeast on mon (the sweet wort will be in a no chill FV for two days) so I should be able to get the last step up done ready for then. If not I'll have to use some CML Real Ale yeast trub I have in the fridge
