I am preparing to brew a Beavertown Neck Oil Clone and wondering about the most suitable dry yeast for this style. One recipe has US05 another has Lalbrew Verdant IPA. Any thoughts on this?

I would expect that Beavertown uses US-05, or something very similar. But Verdant would be a good shout, it is really good for fruity hoppy ales. Either yeast would be good.

What @clib said.

I would have said US05, as I encountered Neck Oil back when Beavertown used the black illuminati style branding, and haven't had it for years. I do wonder if it is gone the way of many beers, and now influenced by the likes of Verdant? softer, hazyier, more juicy? And whether their yeast world be more suitable?

I like how the Sainsbury's website tells you the yeast is US-05. It's not the world that I grew up in. :laugh8:

That, or its listed on the ingredients on the can 🤣

Hi David

Do you have a link to the Neck Oil recipe, please?
You will find the recipe on brewfather. There are a few options but the one I am brewing is from Aran Morland. According to my research, that may be the best one. If you can't find it let me know and I will send you the recipe when I am able to access it on my computer tomorrow.

I had a pint of this yesterday.

I'd agree with US05 but really any neutral yeast would do the job. M44 etc
