If anyone's interested in this strain of Yeast I've been told the actual strain is B1 supplied by Brewlabs... And is the genuine Vaux yeast.

Going to give it a whirl.

I am curious as to the difference in the quantities of sugars in the Bitter recipes over the years versus malt. Which year had the greatest sugar addition? Great historical info, thanks for taking the time to share this.
