This yeast has proven to be great in IPAs. This is a great yeast for people who like WLP001 California Ale Yeast because this yeast throws a little personality and body into your beer . Esters are higher than WLP001. This yeast has been known to result in more diacetyl so increasing the temperature at the end of fermentation is suggested. Great for the cloudy/hazy New England IPA style that is so popular now. Looking to make a beer like Alchemist Heady Topper or mimic the Conan strain? This is a great choice!
