Great yeast for Pliny the Elder clone. Helped the clone brew come out almost spot on.
I used this yeast for a double IPA, OG was 1,082 and FG came in at 1,018. It's a fantastic yeast for big ipa's, the hops shine through, and the yeast gives just enough esters to compliment. Leaves a sweet, malty finish to balance but let's the hops take center stage. I bought another pack to keep for another double IPA I'm going to brew soon.
took longer than expected for shipping, but the yeast was semi-activated so i had to use it right away. the final product was tasty. not much different than the tradition 1056, but it did allow the hops to come through. would buy this again.
I used this in a Chinook IPA and the results are great. A bit malty but no sacrifice in the hop flavor resulting in a great balance. This will now be my yeast of choice for all IPAs I brew. Highly recommended!
I just used this yeast to make a Black Rye IPA and it turn out delicious. It brought out so many wonderful flavors like chocolatey, roastyiness and so many other flavors. I also threw in 6 ounces of Mosaic Hops for late additions and it brought so many flavors from those hops like piney, fruity, and citrus and so many other flavors. I recommend this yeast to anybody that's looking for a yeast to show all the flavors your looking for in your brew. Excellent Yeast Strain. A+++++++
