Product Details

This terrific all-round yeast can be used for almost any style of beer and is a mainstay of renowned homebrewer Mr. Denny Conn. It is unique in that it produces a big mouthfeel and helps accentuate the malt, caramel, or fruit character of a beer without being sweet or under-attenuative. Apparent attenuation: 74-76%. Flocculation: low. Optimum temp: 60°-70° F

Good yeast for Denny's Wry Smile
Selected this yeast for a maltier profile and it delivered. Definitely needs a longer secondary to allow yeast to drop out of suspension, but worth the wait. Would definitely recommend this for Denny's Wry Smile kit.

Fast and low
This yeast takes off quickly and has great attenuation. If you need a yeast to finish below 1.010 this is it. I use it for a dry pale ale with hops that have a fruity character, perfect every time

Ive used this a handful of times now...2 separate rye porters - First one fermented great and second one stuck at 1.030, but I got it down to where I wanted it eventually.RyePA - spectacular!! Great malt and excellent hop flavor.Now just used it on my house porter, and I'm pretty sure it'll be the yeast I stay with from now on.Wonderful work Denny! I love it!!

Good Yeast
Used in a pumpkin ale, my best yet. Pumpkin and spice flavors shine, better body than last batch (S-04), clear and clean. Will use again.

Responds well
A little slower than say the 1056 to start, but the fermentation with this strain is solid. Flocculation seems to be good, the yeast cake in the primary was compact and not as loose as I have seen with other yeast strains.

Not bad
The mfg date was almost out of viability range but otherwise good product

I got this yeast for the first time because the yeast I usually used for my APA was out of stock. This yeast has quickly become my go to yeast. I have been able to push the ABV in my beer to over 10% with great flavor and very little after flavor, with Denny's Fav. 50. I will say I am very pleased with it and its versatility.

Good American Yeast
I have only brewed once with this, though I have an IPA in the fermenter going with a second generation yeast. I used it on an American bitter and really liked it. Low flocculating, it's true, but I did a 10 gallon batch and the second keg sat and mellowed for a few weeks in the cold temperatures and clarified really well. Does keep the malt body without drying out quite as much as 1056. It might be my new go to for pale ales, IPAs, etc.

How does Denny's Favorite work in an oatmeal stout?
D K on Dec 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Denny's "50" would work. However, If I had access to a wider selection of yeast I would go with a yeast geared more towards a stout. Wyeast has an excellent yeast and style guide on their website that would help with the selection.
