Default Used 1272 instead of 1056

I made an Extra PA extract:

1# Carmel Pils (stepped for 30" at 155)

6# Gold Malt LME
2 oz Cascade (6.1%) @ 60"
1 oz Cascade (6.1%) @ 1"

And it was an absolutely perfect full boil ended up with ~ 5 gal @ 1.045 sg. It was dead on ( 89% humidity worked well!!).

Something about the profile of the yeast caught my attention. I love dry hoppy beers, but I wanted to try something different. I was hoping for the crisp accent of that grape-fruity IPA.

One thing I never considered was the implication of using this yeast with an extract. I'm about 12 hours in, and it seems to be doing nicely....

I'm gonna drink it, thats a given, but what should I expect flavor/alc % wise?

I've used both yeasts for IPA's and pales. They're pretty close, IMO.

It will complement the Cascade regardless, but more so at the high-end. You'll probably hit 1.012-14 for ~4.5%.
