I'm formulating my winter Brit recipes with the help of the Wheeler/Protz British Ale book. What are your favorite yeast strains for low gravity English milds, browns, and bitters? By "low gravity", I'm talking under 1.040 OG.

This is where Danstar Windsor would be my choice. It shines in a low gravity British ale, has a fruity quality and leaves some residual body. Being dry yeast, it's very convenient as well. You can brew up a batch on short notice.

I love the crap out of Munton's Gold.

WL English and Dry English

The thing is about a bitter you have to drink them young. Do not cold condion, do not secondary.
Ferment then rack to keg and serve

Grain to glass in less than 2 weeks

Personally Windsor is way overrated. Never did care for it

There's nothing wrong with Wyeast 1968 in a low gravity ale, either. It flocculates quickly and allows you to serve fresh, relatively clear beer in a short time.

WL Bedford is nice, but it is not available year round

I am brewing an ordinary next month to showcase the goldings I grew this year. I plan on using Wyeast 1275 which would also work in a mild or brown, but my favorite for mild is Wyeast 1318
