Comments:

-This recipe Does Not Include Yeast-

Yeast: it seems a lot of people have been growing up yeast from the actual beer as its a key ingredient to deliver a true flavour. The origin of the yeast is supposedly Tadcaster, but it has been used constantly over 50 years to develop into what it is today.

Otherwise you could use WLP017 (Whitbread strain) or WLP002 (fullers strain) and WLP005 (Ringwood strain), or try using Wyeast 1469 West Yorkshire or WLP037 Yorkshire Square, Bedford or other traditional English strains.

from Malt Miller Clone of Harveys sussex best (£17 plus £6 carriage plus yeast) (see my notes in the other recipe recorded called Harveys
others have used S04 or Verdant IPA yeast.

Another clone discussed with in detail;
