Yesterday I made a batch of Porter (Autumn seems to be coming early
here this year, and with it, my fancy lightly turns to thoughts of
darker ales), and not content with trying a new recipe and
unfamiliar hops, I also used a yeast I hadn't tried before: Doric.
If this batch turns out to be seriously flawed, I'll have no idea
whatever what the problem is!

The yeast gave me a bit of a scare, in that it seemed very slow to
start, and formed a softer-appearing cap than the yeasts I'm
accustomed to (Edme and Red Star)(yes, I know). Has any kind HBD
reader used Doric before? Is it as attenuative as Edme? As
"estery" as Red Star Ale? Is it, for that matter, an ale yeast at
all? Youth (?) Wants to Know ...
