This traditional English ale strain works well for a wide range of beer styles, from low-gravity bitters and milds to strong stouts, porters, and old ales. Due to the cells’ chain-forming characteristics, it is an excellent top-cropping yeast. Moderate ester profile makes it a great match for hop-driven beers like bitter and pale ale, but attenuative enough to handle higher-gravity malty styles.

Product Details
This traditional English ale strain works well for a wide range of beer styles, from low-gravity bitters and milds to strong stouts, porters, and old ales. Due to the cells’ chain-forming characteristics, it is an excellent top-cropping yeast. Moderate ester profile makes it a great match for hop-driven beers like bitter and pale ale, but attenuative enough to handle higher-gravity malty styles. Excellent flocculation yields clear beer and allows for cask-conditioning. Ferment at the lower end of the temperature range for a cleaner finish, or utilize the upper end to enhance low-gravity beers with a more assertive ester profile. Apparent attenuation: 72-77%. Flocculation: medium-high. Optimum temp: 66°-74° F.

Not just for English ales!
Used this for NB's sweet stout, as a starter for NB's Barley Wine, and both were excellent. Now it's time for some more Barley Wine, and I've been using this yeast for a few brews leading up to it. So far I've finished NB's Speckled Heifer and Honey Wheat, and both have turned out great. Love the body and taste profile in both.Overall a great yeast, could easily make the short list of house yeast strains, and not only for lovers of English ales.

Really good stuff
Brewed a blond ale with 1945 and am very happy with my new brew. This yeast is a great all - around ale yeast. Gotta try it in my next nut brown .

Good to reuse for a variety of styles
Great yeast.I brewed a low gravity Bitter with it and then harvested the yeast to reuse. I was able to wake it up 6 months later and make a great beer!I have made a British Bitter, Irish Stout, Nut Brown, and Mild Ale with this same batch of yeast and they have all turned out well.It is easy to top crop. The krausen seems to stick around forever.One batch got too hot, about 80, but the beer still turned out with a clean flavor-after I cooled it down and let it age a little.I am going to see how long I can keep using this yeast!

Won't use anything else.
Have used this yeast on imperial stouts, british strong ales, a holiday ale, and my last 3 nut browns. Wyeast 1945 has allowed me to consistently brew one tastey beer after another. Thanks Northern Brewer !!

Superb every time
I am a mid-experienced brewer with enough knowledge to know that I "do not know it all" but I surely have experienced enough brewing yeasts to understand that each yeast strain has its own unique characteristics. This 1945 is a perfect middle-of-the-road yeast which can do it all. I love the mild flavor, its heavily productive but not explosive early ferment, its settling out, and its superb reliability as long as the brewer treats it properly; ease up on the reins you fellow brewers and let this 1945 take you on the brewing journey you so dream about!

Nice 1056 substitute
I recently brewed the Robust Porter recipe in Brewing classic styles but subbed the 1945 for the 1056 the recipe called for with great results. All the attenuation plus a nice "Britishy" yeast flavor contribution. So good I brewed the same recipe again but bottled so I could store some away. Can't wait to try it in another recipe.

Super Yeast
I recently brewed an oatmeal stout and a sweet stout using this yeast. I had two of the most vigorous fermentatioins I have ever had. These two beers came out great and will use it again.

Does this have to be pitched with a starter or can it be put from vial into fermenter?
J M on Dec 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've found wyeast 1945 to be like other wyeast liquid yeasts in that it worked fine without a starter, as long as 1) o.g. of beer was less than 1.050, and 2)yeast wasn't more than several months old.
What is the closest match to another Yeast strain?
M C on Aug 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The closest match to this strain would probably be the Wyeast 1098 British Ale.
When is this going to be back in stock? Gearing up to make an English Barleywine and this is the lynch pin in my plan!
TommyMoe on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hmmm, does not look good! I don't see any on order, and we have not received any since October of 2015. I am not sure when we will have this again, sorry. You may need to use one of the other British Ale yeasts for your Barleywine. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
