Great yeast Review by Vineet
Rating
I've ordered 3 packs of this yeast...the only reason I rate it 4 stars intead of 5 is that one of the ones I ordered never expanded after I smacked it. The instructions say it doesn't necessarily need to expand in order to use it, but I don't know why they say that if it's supposed to be a measure of yeast viability. The one I used that didn't expand ended up not fermenting my wort and I had to add a fresh new pack. Other than that, this yeast produces a great beer. (Posted on 1/20/14)
Never have had any issues! Review by Greg

This is a great yeast that I used in almost all of my pale ales and IPAs. I have never had any issues with it. I have used it to ferment a few rather "big" beer with OGs over 1.080 without a starter and have had great luck! (Posted on 1/19/14)
Consistently a great product. Review by Kurt

I have never had an issue with Wyeast products. They start quickly and always give me a very active and quick fermentation. (Posted on 12/28/13)
Consistent every time Review by Rick

I've used this Wyeast type several times and each time it has performed well. The temperature range works well for my fermentation "area" and the results are consistent every time. Taste has always been clean and the smack pack provides the confidence you need after a long brew day... (Posted on 12/28/13)

Quality Yeast Review by Kevin

Having used this a few times now I can say it is a pretty great yeast. Have not tried it as a starter yet but just out of the packet it does great and has nice flavors. (Posted on 12/23/13)
Good yeast dislike the packaging Review by Thomas

The smack pack comes swollen which makes breaking the activator difficult. Good yeast though. (Posted on 12/15/13)
