Still on the Denny train here. You'll find it's a yeast worthy of washing. Pitched into an American Wheat late on Sunday night. Had krausen by morning fermenting at 62-64 degrees. Thought the temperature would keep it down, but had a little blow-off this morning dispite lots of head space. If the smell from an airlock means anything, this will be a great beer. Good luck with yours.

Just made the deception cream stout with it. I'll be washing the yeast for a black ipa and maybe another battch of ryepa.

Piling on. I've loved all four beers I've done with 1450. No attenuation problems.

I'm still on the same Denny train!

I've got it fermenting right now in an IPA, and then I"m going to save it and wash it and use it in my oatmeal stout.

The other yeast I'm quite taken with is Wyeast 1335. It's an English strain, but with a dry and malty taste to it. I ferment it cool, right alongside the other batch with Denny's, and comparing them head-to-head. (I'm doing 10 gallon batches, splitting them into 5 gallon fermenters and using different yeast in each).

My experience with the Denny's strain in the oatmeal stout is a richer mouthfeel than other other strain I've used.

Never thought about using it for my Black IPA I have planned. I've always used 05 and it's been delish. But, might as well get on this train with everyone else and give that a try too.
Doing an online search of yeast reviews, the 1450 didn't get nearly the love it gets on HBT. However, I value the opinions of those here much more. Final decision will be my taste buds.

Just won gold in the Strong Ale category at the LA County Fair using 1450. Been one of my most versatile and favorite strains, easy to wash and store, and gives me quick starts to fermentation. Love it!

Used the third generation of this run of Denny's yesterday. (Yup. Took the day off and brewed on a Monday. ) In the past I've used Pacman in a pseudo lager, Munich Dunkel. Tried it with Denny's this time. Did a large pitch of yeast at 60 degrees and set fermenter to hold a wort temperature of 58. Had a good inch of krausen in less than eight hours.

It worked so well that I wondering if I could have gone lower. What's the lowest temperature any of you have fermented with this yeast?

I pitched a starter with 1450 into a pale ale this past saturday.
Activity in the fermenter was off and running early sunday morning, with the blow off growler full of sanitizer bubbles.
Checked it this morning and it has slowed quite a bit.

Looks like this beer is going to take a while to clear. I'm thinking 3+ weeks. Is that par for the course with 1450?

I brewed a IPA 1.077 last sunday. I pitched a 2 liter starter on monday morning. I took a sample tonight(7 days later) it was 1.021. I mashed 150-152 for 60 minutes. That is about 72% attenuation.

No airlock activity and I know thats not the only sign of fermentation. But you think its going to drop anymore? I was hoping that it would end up lower than 1.020?!?!
