great for NE style IPAs
get your blowoff tubes ready, this is an angry strain of yeast.

wonderful ester profile, works really well with fruity hops. I made a single-hop IPA with Pacific Jade that was perfect for hot days

Good for more than NE IPAs
Love this for more than just NE IPA. Did a great job on an English Mild and a porter.

Great Hazy Yeast for Hoppy Wheats and N.E. IPA's
This is such a great yeast. Our brewery doesn't filter or centrifuge. We add biofine to clear the majority of yeast for consistency in kegs. This beer leaves a lovely haze for a New England IPA. The yeast flavor and fruit esters goes great with hops like Mosiac and Citra. This was our house yeast strain but was difficult for staples beers to fall out bright so we switched to WLP090 which floccs like a ton of bricks but doesn't provide as much flavor as 1318.

My fav right now!
On my 3rd batch of NE style IPA using this Yeast and I could not be happier! Active within 4-5 hours after pitching. Its going to be hard to try any other yeast when I do this style of beer...

Didn't work well for me
I ordered this through the mail during the early summer and I think the heat might have spoiled it. Nutrient pack wouldn't burst (had to cut it with sterilized scissors), starter looked weak / off, took a 16 hours or so to start fermenting, produced a lot of sulfur at the start (subsided later) and produced an EXTREMELY hazy beer that tasted pretty, in all honesty, just bad. Every other aspect of the brewing process went off without a hitch, but the end result wasn't good. I think I just got a bad batch.

Excellent results!
Used to brew a triple dry hopped NEIPA featuring Citra, Mosaic and Idaho 7. We had problems with the O2 regulator and could only aerate our wort by shaking the carboy and this yeast still took off quickly and finished at exact expected 1.012 FG. 1318 really accentuates the citrusy hops used in this brew. It's a total juice bomb!

Fast, reliable, versatile
This is one of my workhorse yeasts. It's great in any and practically all traditional English styles, with a pleasant fruity ester quality that I enjoy a lot. It's also spectacular for American-style hoppy beers, especially if you want to explore the New England style of APA/IPA -- rumor has it that this is Tired Hands' house strain. It ferments reliably and quickly, typically reaching FG within five days or less. Do respect the temperature range, although you get more of those esters at higher temps. The krausen may never fully fall on this one, so don't be alarmed if it's still there when fermentation appears complete.

Great yeast....fermentation started fast and lasted 5 days....always gives the beer a nice malty flavor / taste...one of my favorite yeast to use...

I've used this yeast a couple times now, and it's great for strong ales! Blowoff tube is a must with this one, if you use regular airlock you will almost certainly have a fermenter eruption! This stuff ferments fast with a nice light sweetness, I highly recommend for IPA or any other strong hoppy ales, I'm using it for the grapefruit pulpin kit right now and it's going great, so strong you don't have to use starter but I still did so I would ferment faster for St.Patricks day.

Is 1 pack enough to pitch a 1.065 OG with out making a starter?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Technically speaking yes, but you may find that the fermentation to be sluggish with a high FG. I always recommend a yeast starter, but if it's not possible I'd advise either pitching two Wyeast packs per 5 gallons, or choosing a yeast with a higher cell count for anything over a 1.050 OG.
1/2 for a 2.5 gallon batch ?
Matthew M on Mar 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It doesn't matter, throw it all in. When the yeast runs out of sugar to convert, it stops.
