For Wyeast 1056 American Ale, how is flavor of the final beer affected by fermenting at the lower end of the temp range versus the higher end? Also, what is the effect on attenuation?
Rusty on Jun 7, 2015
Best Answer: At lower temperatures you'll find that there is a mild citrus character from the yeast, at higher temperatures you'll see a higher prevalence of citrus and fruitiness. Attenuation will be variable depending on your batch size and yeast pitch rate but you should be hitting 73-77% attenuation, higher temperatures do increase yeast metabolism however they will also make you a lot of unwanted compounds in your beer.

Is this better than dry yeast?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: Although dry yeast has come quite a way in terms of quality, liquid yeast has a lot more variety of strains available. Liquid yeast is also better suited for starters.
