Product Details
A super clean, super-fast fermenting strain. A low ester-producing strain that results in a balanced, neutral flavor and aroma profile. Alcohol-tolerant and very versatile for a wide variety of styles. Similar to California Ale Yeast WLP001 but it generally ferments faster.

Will definitely use again. Had great reaction within 36 hours and stayed active. Recommend this strain.

No go unfortunately
Love this yeast but it was DOA when I got it. Gave it four days but no live. Picked up some BRY-97 and it took off immediately.

Clean and fast. Incedibly vigorous fermentation by 24 hrs (though I do make a 1/2 gallon starter). Blow-off tube a must; krausen will overwhelm an airlock and make a gross mess.

Side by side
Had a process problem with our favorite double black IPA recipe and crossed my fingers as I used 1056 for 5 gallons and 090 for the other 5 gallons. Though neither turned out as well as usual, the 090 had far fewer off flavors than the 1056.

Fast fermenter
Ferments fast. I did not achieve expected attenuation. Could be process related though. Neutral flavor. Going to use as house yeast in replacement of wlp001 and see how things go. As of right now it seems to be a nice all around ale yeast.

Better than WLP001
I used it for an imperial black IPA and a black session IPA. It fermented the imperial from 1.102 to 1.030 in two weeks, actually mostly in the first week, at about 70 F. The session IPA went from 1.048 to 1.012 in one week. Upon first taste the SD super yeast is very neutral and does not accentuate either hops or malt.

Fast and clean
This yeast is unmatched in speed and activity. Also clean finish. Love it!

Created a starter the day after the use before date expired; pitched the next day and got activity within 4 hours. Fermented at 70-75 degrees and it was over within 3 days. Went from 1.067 to 1.014. I had 2 gallons pitched with Safale-05 to do a comparison and the SDSS was much more clearer when they were done. No odd flavors contributed to the higher fermenting temps. Washed the yeast to do some more later.

Awesome Stuff
Made a 2.5L starter, oxygenated for 60 seconds, got a triple IPA from 1.090 to 1.011 in THREE DAYS, neutral flavor. What more could you ask for? Will definitely be using again many many times.
