I actually just pitched a tube into 4 gallons of an Arrogant bastard clone on August 13th. My OG was 1.076, it's been 10 days and my airlock is STILL bubbling nice and consistently. I've never had a yeast that performed like this. I split 8 gallons for wort into two different carboys and used this WLP090 in one and 007 in the other. The 007 has already lost it's krausen and the yeasties have all fallen down... no more bubbles. The San Diego Super yeast is still eating away and eating that OG down. I will take a reading tonight and let you know what it is tomorrow. So far in my opinion GREAT yeast!

Alright well I took the gravity of the 007, it was at 1.020 however I did not take the gravity of the 090 because I didnt wanbt to lose the air cap on top as it is still fully active. I did notice that the krausen is starting to fade and I expect it to be gone in two days or so. By The end of the weekend I will have a gravity for you.

Thanks for the update! I ordered some of the super strain and am patiently waiting to brew a big IPA.....

Cool man. I will give you that gravity reading on Monday, but really... so far very happy that I used it on this beer. Do you already have a recipe for the IPA? Im brewing what should be a nice one tomorrow.

I like it a lot. I alternate between this and pacman. They are both very aggressive yeasts.

My last IPA had OG of 1.067, used Super San Diego and it finished at 1.010 for 85% attenuation. It was mashed at 148F for 75 minutes and had 7.8% crystal malts. Tastes great and is nice and clear.

The other time I used it on an IIPA had OG of 1.075 and it finished at 1.012 for 84% attenuation, with 7.2% crystal & specialty malts, mashed at 152F for 60 minutes. Also turned out great.

Big fan of this yeast!

PS> Both times I used Mr. Malty yeast calculator for proper pitch rate, and fermented between 66-70F.

I've been using 090 for the last number of batches. It is pretty damn clean fermenting and a bit of a beast. I'm in the process of growing some Pacman right now for the next batch to be brewed. Thinking of a Greenflash clone to test. One thing I did notice with Pacman, it's like hanging a beef shank into a pond full of starving pirhana while they devour the sugars.

As everyone has stated, it's very fast. The only thing I'd add is that even though it ferments viciously, the krausen is relatively thin compared to most ale stains, which I like since I don't have to worry about a blowoff tube.

Also, yes it gets down to fg rapidly, but still needs a couple weeks to clear. I have made apas that i could drink in a week, but they were still a but cloudy.

Just following up on my original post. I made a pale ale that started off at 1.062 and was crystal clear and down to 1.01 in 12 days! Clearest beer I've ever made and the fastest yeast I've ever used. Hope this stuff stays around!

It's a year-round yeast, and a popular one at that. I think it's here to stay
