St Austell Tribute Yeast

Hi,
I am planning to brew a Tribute Clone, and I should be grateful if you could recommend the best Yeast I can use?

Thanks.

Tough one and open to debate. St austell have their own yeast strain that is clean but definitely English...

They start proper job at low temperature to reduce ester production but also mash low as their yeast doesn't attenuate well.

Throwing all that out, I would use us-05 in the mid range or Nottingham in the low range.

I'm drinking Proper Job right now - it is indeed bottle conditioned. Could try growing up a starter with a few bottles of dreggs.

2016: 330L brewed (72 gallons, over 8 firkins)
2017: 105L brewed (need to update this figure)
Drinking: Landlord clone
Conditioning: ciders from 2016, hedgerow barrolo, 1914 Courage RIS (10%).

I'd try Wyeast Ringwood yeast - you want the hops to pop.

By the way, I do actually have access to proper job yeast in the cask if anyone really really really wants it..

Thanks for your comments, and Wyeast Ringwood looks a good option. However, the proper job yeast does sound very tempting?
