"Great House Yeast"
By: Bill Baxter | Date: Sep 8, 2016 | Beer(s) Brewed: American IPA, APA
This yeast offers a fantastic, slightly more expressive option versus the tried and true WLP001. Definitely leaves the beer a touch sweeter with less attenuation but I find it to be very complimentary for most of the American styles. Does put off some sulfur smells in fermentation but if you wait it out they dissipate. In my experience it requires some patience and extra encouragement to attenuate fully. Basically this means ramping fermentation temperatures up after a few days in primary. Not a quick fermenting strain regardless, but one that is worth the wait!
"Different But Good"

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. "

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