I really like this yeast. I used it in my pumpkin ale and my breakfast stout and both times I got compliments about the mouthfeel. It is currently working on Denny's Rye IPA. I recently ordered some White Labs Rebel Brewer Pub Ale yeast which I hear may be the same yeast, I am going to have to do a split batch and see what happens. I really like using "American" yeasts unless I am doing a Belgian and this is a nice option outside of 1056.

This is my go-to yeast for my Early Riser Rye Red Ale.

It's a low-gravity session beer that is hoppy for an Irish Red. The good attenuation and maltiness that the yeast contributes, along with other techniques, to a 3.7% ale that had a lot of body and dimension.

Big fan.

What mash temps do folks have success with when using 1450?

I'm planning to make a 1.060 amber ale, with 10% crystal malt. If I was fermenting with a more familiar strain, I'd mash at 154. Will that mash temp work with Denny's Favorite 50, or should I go a bit lower?

Love the strain!

And it will work great for this at 154.

Without intervention (a big plus for wintertime brewing) temps have naturally been resting at 67-68 for me. What could I expect from 1450 at those temps?

I've personally never tried it at that high of a temp... but I know others that have and everything was just fine.

Just brewed a batch of northern brewers speckled heifer this weekend, and went with this yeast. Not sure on how it will turn out, but i plan to use the cake on dennys rye ipa, so it saves me from making a starter.

I am currently fermenting my house pale ale with 1450. I usually use wlp 007, but I went through 5 generations of washed yeast and dumped it, and then my LHBS was out. I bought an expired smack pack for $1.00 and made a starter and it had a good krausen by hour 12. I have high hopes for this yeast and will report back when this batch is ready.
