Favorite Yeast Yet!!!
I have used this yeast in 6 brews now, and I am extremely pleased with the results. I have had no starting issues at all and it seems to be a vigorous yeast. All six brews have come out splendid from light and dark ales. I highly recommend this product to all of my brewing buddies!

Fantastic
This is a great yeast strain!! It's no wonder a few of the best micro breweries use this as a house strain. If your looking for an east coast style beer then this is the one for you. Just make sure you use a starter, properly aerate, and do a diacetyl rest when called for. Your in for a treat!

Top-notch yeast
This is my absolute favorite yeast to work with. It has a lot of character and plays well with a variety of malts. It also makes for very clear beers. If anything, it can be a little too flocculant: don't let your starter sit too long, or you'll have to shake it pretty vigorously. I'm told it can be a slow starter, but in my experience, it starts up very readily and ferments quickly if you make sure that you prepare a starter and take the time to properly aerate the wort. These are things you should be doing anyway, so I don't see it as any additional hardship.This is the yeast of choice for many great breweries (Shipyard, Dogfish Head, Geary's, to name a fiew). Try it out yourself, you won't be disappointed.

Very distinctive yeast
If you are looking for a fast acting, very fruity and esteryÊyeast, then this is the one for you. It gives a very distinctive , yet pleasant character to ales when paired to the right style..

A Wee Bit Fickle, but Worth the Wait
It's hard to say if heat affected my last two packs or if something else is slowing them down, but they have been very slow to start. I know this variety has worked very well in St. Paul Porter in the past and likely will with my two current batches.

Can have some fermentation issues.
Can have some fermentation issues. If going high gravity supplement with a less tempramental yeast strain.

Bad Batch
Didn't take. After 3 days of no activity I went to my local homebrew store and bought some White Labs British Ale yeast. That did the trick.

Response from Northern Brewer
Sorry about the trouble with the Wyeast! We'd always want to know if a yeast did not work for a customer, we would credit for it or replace it. Did the yeast inflate as expected when activated? If given time, it should inflate, giving proof of viability. Do you ever make yeast starters? That is a good idea, especially for liquid yeast delivered in the heat of summer. Let us know what went on with the yeast, and I will see what we can do to help out at this point! -Mike W, Northern Brewer
