This one will replace 05 in my brewing when it becomes available. It's very aggressive and finishes up quickly. Flocs out quickly and is very clean up to 70°. Med high attenuation(82%). I've used it 3 times so far and am pleased with the results.
I used it in an American Wheat, a Blonde, and Yooper's Fizzy Yellow Beer. All low hopped, lower gravity beers with nothing to hide behind.
I may be reluctant to use it on an IPA and will most likely stick with wlp001 for those.
This yeast should be available within a couple of weeks for you to run your own tests on.
Keep Brewin,
Bull

So you recommend using this yeast in our lower hop ales due to its ability to lower the taste of the hops? I would like to find something different than US-05 or Notty for beers like Yooper's Fizzy Yellow recipe. I wonder when this will be available.

I wouldn't say it lower's the hop taste, I just happened to use it on those types of beer and it was very clean.

I haven't tried it on a hoppy beer yet because I only had 2 packs of it.

According to Danstar, it's the Chico strain.

It should be available very soon.

Sorry if this is a dumb question but is the chico strain of yeast usually packaged as a liquid? I have not used it before but I think I recall something about it being used by Sierra Nevada brewing. Is this correct?

From the description it sounds more flocculant than most versions of the Chico strain.

Did you find that it behaved much differently than US-05/1056/WLP001?

Where did you hear this? IME, Chico does not floc well or mute hops. I read somewhere that it could be Pacman.

US-05 is the same strain as WLP001 and Wyeast 1056. These are collectively referred to as "the Chico strain".

OP, thanks for sharing your experiences with BRY-97. I love dry yeast for the sheer simplicity and value, but there need to be more dry strains available. I'll definitely give this one a shot, but I'm still hoping for a change in variety, not just more west coast ale strains.

Here is where I read that it might be Pacman.

For all who have been waiting, it's now out.
Selling for the same price as Notty

I actually got the trial yeast from Keith Lemke at a conference and he told me that it was their Chico strain.
I will say, that it acts more like Pacman though.

If you like Notty, you'll love this. It's clean with medium high attenuation, a very quick starter, very aggressive and way more flocculant than US 05.

Post you're own results here.
