    Brewing a English Best Bitter this weekend for an upcoming BJCP competition. What would be my best bet on yeast if only yeast available is SO4, Nottingham and Windsor?

    I like 04 personally - tastes great in my English Mild.

    really depends on what % alcohol your looking for, Nottingham will ferment with more alcohol US 04 and windsor have less and windsor has a slight flavor

    Nottingham: Drier. Windsor: Fruitier. Answer to your question: Depends on what you're trying to accomplish.
