    Danstar Windsor

    Windsor ale yeast is a true English strain that produces a beer which is estery to both palate and nose with a slight fresh yeasty flavor. Beers created with Windsor are usually described as full-bodied, fruity English ales. Brewers choose Windsor to produce beers that range from pale ale to porter with moderate alcohol levels and the flavor & aroma characteristics of the best traditional ales. Depending on the composition of the recipe, Windsor demonstrates moderate attenuation which will leave a relatively high gravity (density). Recommended fermentation temperature range for Windsor is 17° to 21°C (64° to 70°F).

Hands down my best, and favorite

I am definitely on a rye kick right now. I enjoy the dry finish, and the way it complements the hops. This beer is a very definite drinker. plenty of depth to satisfy the beer advocates, yet nice and clean for those that are not. This is a beer that I will brew again, and if I try to brew a larger recipe say 25gal, this will be the one I will try first.
