This is actually the 1st time I've used Citra so I didn't really think about the complement with the 1056. Anyhow, I'm a little sensitive to the aroma the yeast gives off so it seems to dominate the beer. I used US-05 in Janet's Brown (hoppy American Brown) over Christmas and noticed the peach came through very clearly. It seemed to pair better than on my IPAs.

if you're sensitive to it, but you like the yeast, just work on finding the temperature sweet spot where you get good beer, but the peach is limited or gone. try 65-67 degrees, letting it warm a few degrees by the end of fermentation. should ferment nice and clean at those temps.

I had read an article that fermenting at the bottom of a yeasts temp range produced a cleaner profile, so I fermented my first brew in the 59-63 range. It is a Cream Ale and goes to bottle this Saturday. Now I can't wait to see if I need to name it Peaches & Cream!

Thanks for posting this. I just fermented a rye pale with US-05 in the low 60s and swore all week that I was getting a slight peach/apricot aroma and flavor, and couldn't figure out why until now.

so THIS is why my rye ipa smells like peaches!
based on hydrometer samples, i find it works splendidly with the hops!

I turned a Cream of the 3 Crops into a peach bomb with US05 in the mid-upper 50s. That batch was one of the main reasons I went and bought a chest freezer so I wouldn't have to try and balance ice bottles in a water bath. I just used it again on an American Wheat at 63 so I'll get to try it again after 18 months of hiding from 05.

This is all very interesting. I just had a taste from a new batch that finished fermenting about a week ago (using US-05), and it was an absolute peach-bomb. It's an interesting flavor, but decidedly un-beerlike at this point. I bottled last night, so I plan to try it in about a month. Can others who have experienced this flavor from cool ferm temps and US-05 comment on their experience after conditioning? Did the peach flavor persist, mellow, or go away altogether?

Bump.. How are people's experience with this off peachy flavor in terms of mellowing out in bottle conditioning??

I'd like to know this, as well. I have my first all-grain blonde ale in the bottles as of now, and there's a pronounced fruity/peachy note. Ferment was in the 60-64 range.

Peach flavor could be due to sulfur production, which happens at lower temperatures.
