Default Wyeast 1450 Denny's Favorite 50?

Used this yeast at 1.5L starter on a stir plate for Waldo Lake Amber (~1.060).

Am curious about anyone elses observations on the activity of this yeast. Obvious fermentation activity in the morning from a early evening pitch, but overall looks like a relatively modest level of activity...it's still chugging away but never seemed to get real agressive (not a ton of krausen, no blow off concern, etc.).

Does that parallel other observations?

Yep sounds right especially if you are fermenting a bit on the cool side (64-66 degrees).

One thing I noticed about 1450 is that it's a really slow floccer. I had a tough time getting a clear beer even with a long cold crash.

I also just used Dennys for his Waldo Lake. Super cloudy even after 20 days until I cold crashed and added gelatin for three days. Went into the bottles pretty clear. But if I ever had a beer that could benefit from a cold crash and finings, this was the one.

That's good to know about the clarity. I'll plan on a good, solid cold crash.

My favorite yeast for my brown ale. It tends to be slow in first generation. Does not floc well for sure. I like to build my yeast up and pitch my brown yeast into my Kate The Great. Like this yeast in my porter too.
