Love It

Very nice alternative to WLP001 - I don't mind the sulfur smell at all, which dissipates eventually anyway, prob will be my house yeast from now on.

Complements Tropical Hops

Yes, this yeast kicks sulpher like crazy! On Day 2 of a recent IPA, my wife says, "Your mancave smells horrible. You have something going bad in there." Don't freak out - it will pass and will not end up in your finished beer. This yeast brings out the fruitiness and "tropical" quality of hops such as Simcoe and Citra. Love it. While WLP001 goes dry dry dry with no yeast character, this yeast leaves a bit more malt body and presence. Trying it in a Foreign Extra Stout now. And it keeps the wife out of my mancave - added bonus...
