You may want to try again. I love Wyeast 1010. In fact I've got a nice fresh pouch in the fridge. You would need to be more specific on what was terrible about it. For me, that strain produces a massive blowoff with a thick bready yeast cap that sometimes needs to be knocked down, a lot of farty sulfur during fermentation, but resulting in a deliciously tart and complex beer but not phenolic like a German wheat beer. Also, this strain though listed as low flocculant produces beer that has almost filtered clarity. It drops really really clear with enough time, and seems to pull everything else down with it.
