The last batch of this run of the yeast is a clone of Timothy Taylor’s Landlord.  I chose this recipe because I recently came across some whole hop Styrian Goldings, which are quite difficult to find.  Target gravity was 1.042, but we reached 1.044 instead.  The brew went fine, though the yeast is exhibiting some uncharacteristic flavours from the previous batch of Batham’s Best Bitter, which is probably due to contamination from the summer air.  The malt bill is Maris Otter, some light crystal, and a touch of debittered black malt for colour adjustment.  Target IBU is 35.
