Is it a “normal” pitch rate (ie an 11g pack will do 20L) or is it like the Lallemand New England where we need a larger amount?
Standard lower rate 0.5g per litre which ill be more than sufficient unless going for crazy SG, good cell concentration and viability, its a very robust and reliable strain.

Seen it for sale at £4.85 elsewhere. Can't wait to try it. Dry version of London Ale 3 I believe.

Sounds even further away!!!!
Cornwall isn't that far away from London though it probably wishes it was further away sometimes.

Verdant originally used London Ale III from Wyeast but after this incident I don't know if they do any more.

Whatever, this is good news. More choice for those that use dry yeasts.

That's a good and interesting read

I had a drink in their little bar just off Arwenack St. in Falmouth whilst visiting my daughter who is at Uni down there
- well worth a visit ( had some great bar food as well ).
You can also pick up fresh beer direct from the brewery on the outskirts of town.

At least for a while after the exploding can issue Verdant switched to Lallemand New England, so unless Lallemand developed a new strain for them closer to their original London ale III house strain it could just be a re-branding exercise... Although the lower pitch rate required suggests at least something has changed. Maybe a blend with another ale yeast already in their catalogue? Either way, sounds like yet another good yeast choice, long gone are the days of only having a choice of 3 decent but rather bland ale strains unless you were geared up for liquid. I'll add it to my list to try along with the dried Voss. Wonder if it also drops clear enough to do good English ales like London III can (and Conan)?

Everything online suggests it's not a rebrand of NE but London ale 3

I mean from my perspective this is great timing. When i had heard something was happening i immediately thought it would be dry isolate of a boddingtons/london ale III.

But it may well be a house variation on the above and maybe even a blend. I know some breweries who use a US05/ESB blend in yeast to get enough esters, and low floc while getting enough attenuation.

I cant wait to try it and see how it performs and how it can be scaled up to a 10 Hcl pitch. This sort of innovatin can only be great thing for the HB world and micros who dont have yeast brinks and the labs yet, or the money to buy wet yeast all the time.

I hope this is the case because I have a NEIPA and an old school Boddies clone lined up for future brews so I can use for both and compare.
