Wyeast provides a "proprietary strain" to Northern Brewer homebrew shop--Wyeast 1945 NB NeoBritannia--but does anyone know the original source? Itís likely derived of a historic British brewery strain, but which one?

Thanks!

I donít believe it actually has an original source. From what I can gather, it is an engineered strain for NB, not sourced from an historic brewery. You can always shoot Kris England an email, heís tracked down the sources of most all other strains.
