WLP090 San Diego Super Yeast
Did anyone else see this on the White labs website?


WLP090 San Diego Super Yeast - A super clean, super-fast fermenting strain. A low ester-producing strain that results in a balanced, neutral flavor and aroma profile. Alcohol-tolerant and very versatile for a wide variety of styles. Similar to California Ale Yeast WLP001 but it generally ferments faster.
Optimal Fermentation Temperature: 65-68F
Attenuation: 76-83% +
Flocculation: Medium-High
Alcohol Tolerance: High

Looks like a total winner to me. It seems kind of like a higher flocculate version of US-05, which i've always found to attenuate a touch more than WLP001. ~80% attenuation and high flocculation.... seems like a perfect yeast for most American ales.

I think you should try it and report back. :)

Well it hasn't been released yet. Trust me, i'll be trying it once released to compare to the Chico strain.

IM pretty sure this is the strain that Port brewing uses.

I just picked up a vial of this from my LHBS, it has a cool looking graphic and a color label instead of the usual plain gold. The guy at the shop told me he talked to some White Labs people at the national homebrew convention and this stuff can fully ferment even a fairly high gravity beer in about 3-4 days! Sounds unbelievable, I can't wait to give it a try. My only issue now is I'm not sure what to brew with it. Anyone use this stuff yet and have suggestions?

I'd brew a 1.045 blonde ale with it to get a feel for its charecteristics, then do an IPA or IIPA on top of the yeast cake.

I read about this through a email from AHS, and was excited to see the specs until i read the optimal fermentation temps of 65-68F..... i personally ferment all my ales at about 72-74 so im not sure how this strain would fair, but i might try it anyways when i need a quick turn around. If anyone knows 100% which brewery this came from id love to know.

My guess would also be that it is a Port Brewing strain, although there is a slight chance that it might be the strain that Alesmith uses.

I'm thinking time for a huge IIPA...something along the lines of a Hop Suey, PTY or Maharaja (some of the older, bigger batches)

I have a friend who is a brewer at Port, I'll ask and report back.
