Yeast cells are active and living organisms. A slight expansion in Wyeast packaging is normal and does not indicate poor yeast health. Certain strains, including 1056 and 1338, are more prone to expansion than others. Please visit the Wyeast FAQ for more details.
This strain is ideally suited to the production of west-coast style American craft beers, especially pale, IPA, red, and specialties. Thorough attenuation, temp tolerance, and good flocculation make this an easy strain to work with. Flavor is balanced neutral with mild ester formation at warmer temps, allowing hops, character malts, and flavorings to show through.
Beer Styles: American IPA, Imperial IPA, American Pale Ale, American brown ale, Red Ales, Scottish Ales

5.0 / 5.01 ReviewExcellentI just use this yeast in my Black Rye IPA and it turn out fantastic. It brought out a lot of delicious flavors that I enjoyed like chocolatey and some roast flavors and it brought out out the rye that I used in the brew as well. I used 6 ounces of Mosaic Hops for this brew in the late addition and it brought every single flavor from that hop like citrus, piney and floral characters. I recommend this yeast to anybody that's looking for a yeast to show all the wonderful flavors in there brew. Excellent Yeast Strain I will definitely use this yeast over and over for sure.November 12, 2013
