Figured that if it’s good enough for Yooper it was worth a shot. Just moved an IPA that was fermented with Wy1450 to secondary for oaking . Wow! This stuff taste great right from the hydrometer tube. Here’s some pictures to dispel the flocculation and attenuation rumors. Started at 1.063 and dropped to 1.010 after 12 days. These pictures are after some cold crashing, but before moving to the secondary. Can't wait to get it kegged after a few weeks on the wood.

I made the RyeBanger with 1450 and it turned out awesome. Chinook and willamette really made a nice combo with my admittedly heavy load of crystal malt. Even with all that. Crystal there is very little head to this beer. Does rye do that? I've noticed it with commercial rye beers as well. Anyhoo, just wanted to post one of my best brews to date.

I hope the screenshot is legible for you all! I need beersmith.......or something to make recipes easier to share.

I had something crazy happen with my latest fermentation with 1450.
Made a 1L starter of 1450 and pitched it into a 1.066 beer that had just been chilled to 64*.
Fermentation took off very quickly, and within a few hours, the fermenter temp spiked to 71*!!!

Now, fermentation always makes my temp jump up 2 or 3 degrees, but never something like this.
Anyone else noticed a similar temp spike with this yeast?

Check out this cool picture....
This is when the temperature is climbing. That is yeast suspended in the wort. It almost looked like it was swimming around the way it was moving. Coolest fermentation I've ever seen. My wife thought I was crazy for watching it for about 30 minutes.
