I use this yeast exclusively on my homegrown fresh hop pale ale each year, and it never disappoints. Kicks in within 12 to 18 hours and drops the gravity fairly quickly, but takes a long time to finish. Still get a bubble here and there in the airlock after about a week. Transfer to secondary and the gravity still drops a few more points. Expect two to three weeks in tank(s) before packaging. However, this yeast yields a nice clean base to let your malts and hops flourish.
Used this for a citra driven pale right in time for the hot summer days ahead. Fermented great, incredibly active even at lower temps (fermented at 62) and even then it blew my fermenter. Definitely don't mind the clean-up since it worked so great, clean finish, no added flavors, settled great and allowed the malt and hops to shine. I will definitely be utilizing this again.
I put this yeast into an all grain IPA, made a slurry and pitched at 80 degrees. I had high krausen in 7 hours. Read reviews of it taking up to 48 hours to start which is insane. It finished to .012 from .051, in 3 days. Cleared quickly in the bottle. have not tasted yet as am at week 3. Performace honestly was similar to Muntons Gold, With Gold giving massive krausen in 4 hours. This is a good and solid yeast. Oxy up the wort, it should never take a yeast 48 hours to show a starting.
Super impressed. This will now be my go to for dry packs. I made a fairly high gravity Americanized ESB (5 gal) on 4/14 and pitched the West Coast Yeast in my 1/2 barrel Kegmentor. Got the expected lag but when this stuff took off WOW. My blowoff rune was going crazy. Curiosity killed me so I took a peek in. Krausen was 2/3 up the keg walls. If I had done this in a 6 gal fermentor I would have had a heck of a blow off. Took a gravity reading today and its close to 1.01 bubbler is still popping off occasionally. Took a little taste of the sample beer. Very clean and nice and dry, No syrupy taste like I was shooting for. Give it a go, I think you'll be very pleased.
This has become my go to yeast. I make a lot of clean beers that require very high attentuation, and this stuff nails it. I typically use the low 60's, though it works just as well higher. It will ferment even at 58F once it's going. I have an Imperial IPA on tap now that finished at 8.2% and a final gravity of 1.010 using this stuff. Can't say enough good things. Don't be alarmed, though. It usually has a disconcertingly long lag time. It takes longer than any other I've used, typically a day and a half. Don't worry, the stuff does great. A side note: If you mix this half and half with the Mangrove Jack British Ale yeast, you can make a dynamite session. That combo ferments quickly and cleanly to a low final gravity in under a week, even in the low 60s.
