Great for dry ales
I've used this for a dry stout with great results. My OG for the batch was ~1.058 and finished at ~1.004. It worked extremely quickly with most of the aggressive fermentation taking place within 2 days. As with all liquid yeast, try to use as fresh as possible.

Check production date on the yeast - not always within recommended usage date
Received a 6 month old yeast pack of Irish Ale. Not enough healthy yeast cells to get to desired FG. Ordered an American Ale yeast pack at the same time, it had a production date less than a month old.

Response from Northern Brewer
Liquid yeast should have at least 3 months on its shelf life upon receipt.

Umm, no, I did not receive Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale yeast!
The feedback email from NB says: Hello first name last name, "You've recently bought Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale, what do you think about it?" I *had* placed an order for Wyeast 1084 yeast in order to brew an Irish Red ale, but when my ingredients arrived I was surprised to find Wyeast 1098 instead, (thus the response in my review title). I IM'd NB and explained the mix up and was offered a credit for the mistake. Fair enough, but I was brewing in two days so a credit didn't do me any good. I would have like to heard: we can overnite you one, but I understand they have a business to run and profit to make. I turned down the credit, found WLP004 at my LHBS, and decided to start supporting them more frequently.

Response from Northern Brewer
I don't know the situation that came about, its only 2 days in transit to Ohio so we would have been happy to send out the yeast. If it was coming up to the weekend it might not ahve arrived in time, order delivered on a Monday though. Not sure what happened then, thanks for bring it to our attention. Not sure what I can do to help, happy to send some nice credit as our apologies, I could even send a beer recipe kit if you want the next brew to be on us. I've got plenty of options to help. glad to hear you were able to get yeast at the LHBS, it's all about the beer. Cheers.

Use in IPAs
I was first switched on to this strain a few years ago and was impressed by its volcanic nature (don't ferment too warm). Because I enjoy slightly soft IPAs with a dry, malty backbone, this is my go to strain. If you like using tons of fruity hops in your IPAs and want a yeast to compliment the hop aromas/flavors, look no further than the 1084. This strain also bottle conditions well, as it leaves a tightly compacted cake.

great yeast for a stout
I just brewed a cream stout using this yeast (while creating a 2L starter). This ferments quickly and aggressively at easy to maintain temperatures. I would highly recommend this strain for most stouts.

Bought this to do Jambalaya and Frogmore Stew. Got an eleven Gallon Pot and heats water fast... fast. Also purchased the Longer Legs and now working on using the shorter legs that came with the burner to fold down from the extended legs to provide a much sturdier base. Absolutely no chance of tip over. Uses pins to hold in fold-up or fold-down position.Must have been a little dirt in the regulator valve on first try because the flame was extremely low. Took in the shop and tried it there out of the wind and it started working. Have used it multiple times since then and flames are normal now. (mondo normal)DG

Very easy to work with. Always arrives fresh and in good condition. Also comes with freezer pack to make sure the yeast inside isn't spoiled. Great!

Always works well for stouts.

Great yeast
The best beer (NB- Irish Draught) i've made included this yeast.I've used it two other times with stouts and the beer had a great taste. Go for it.

Nice, aggressive fermentation
This yeast ferments aggressively, quickly, and cleanly. It leaves behind very mild esters so use in a porter or stout is ideal. Made a pumpkin porter with this and it turned out awesome.

Does this yeast need refrigeration?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes until you are going to use it follow instructions on package . before you brew your beer do your yeast package first . let it set at room temperature by the time your beer is done the yeast will be ready to put in fermenter . cheers
