That’s what I was thinking too. Scottish Ale. Either WLP028 or Wyeast 1728.

And the name of the yeast that exhibits all these attributes is called ?

Since the OP is looking to use what he can get from his LHBS, I’d say WLP051 and WLP028 are a good place to start. Also WLP002, 008 and 013 might be able to achieve these results.

Wyeast, I would suggest West Yorkshire, Scottish or London III.

East Coast Yeast, their "Newark" strains might work too.

A couple people have suggested WLP028, so I may go for it!

forget everybody else!! buy 2 lbs of dark candy sugar and some WLP500!!
