    Cant go wrong with London Ale III. Just brewed a west coast using Lallemand BRY 97, so will see how that works out

    Try it in a golden ale, it'll give you a Hobgoblin Gold clone that is literally spot on.

    As to a bitter yeast, I have yet to make a decent bitter. Only tried the once (using Liberty Bell), and it was meh. Graham Wheeler's recipe for Banks's though, so it didn't have the best chance to start with... I currently have a starter on with Imperial A09 Pub (supposed to be Fuller's strain), some of which I plan on using in a London Pride clone (some of, as I have 2.65 litres of starter, made up with a whole pouch of Imperial yeast, trust me when I say it's an overbuild... lol). I'll let you know how I get on, as London Pride is one of the few bitters I actually like...
