Overall a nice alternative to 001 when you still want an American Ale yeast but not quite as clean as 001 and not as malty as East Coast. Doesn't flocculate very well but nothing a bit of gelatin and cold conditioning cant fix.

DIFFERENT BUT GOOD

By: THale04 | Date: Jan., 17th 2016 | Beer(s) Brewed: Session IPA

 

Slow to ferment, produces sulfur compounds but creates a great beer with slight fruity esters with bit more body than 001. Overall a nice alternative to 001 when you still want an American Ale yeast but not quite as clean as 001 and not as malty as East Coast. Doesn't flocculate very well but nothing a bit of gelatin and cold conditioning cant fix. Plan on leaving in primary a bit longer than usual and doing some fining but you'll be happy with the result.

 

BE PREPARED FOR SULFER AROMA.

By: David | Date: Aug., 12th 2014 | Beer(s) Brewed: American brown ale

 

I'm currently driving my wife crazy with the sulfer aroma coming off of this strain.

 

SOMEWHAT FRUSTRATING

By: 816beers | Date: Apr., 18th 2013 | Beer(s) Brewed: IPA

 

I wanted something with a touch more character than 001/1056. I thought this might work. Instead, it's a rather finicky thing. The yeast produces a full bodied, slightly sweet beer that clears nice. It has a low to moderate fruitiness. It's not as fruity as an English strain, but much less neutral than the typical American strains.

While I like the flavor, it is a rather tempermental yeast. Many of the stains White Labs sells work well outside their temperature range. This is not one of them. It basically ceases to ferment if the temp drops much below 64F. Above 72F it gets a bit estery.

The attenuation for me was around 71% in a 1.060 beer.

I think you can find a less tempermental yeast in 001. I don't know that the flavor is different enough to make it worthwhile.
