Default Pale Ale with 1028 London Yeast

I brewed my first batch of beer Saturday night. The kit (Pale Ale) came with a Muntons dry yeast and I followed the directions on package. Being a beginner, I failed to realize the yeast wasn't active and I pitched it. After no CO2 output after 24 hours and the same SG, I made the call to repitch it. Late last night, I used a pack of 1028 London liquid yeast I have for another batch.

Does anyone have an idea of what effect the 1028 London Yeast will have on my Pale Ale tastewise? It was intended for a cream stout, so I'm sure it will different taste than intended, I just don't what to expect.

From the description on the Wyeast website (, 1028 will impart a dry, crisp, minerally, slightly fruity flavor.

Sounds perfect for a pale ale!

Good luck with the brew, and congrats!
