I almost always use Chico strain yeasts and beer to try something different; how would you say this yeast is different from wlp001 etc?
I've yet to use White Labs' version of that type of yeast (West Coast/Cali ale). So, I can't comment on that.
I had harvested the 1098 from a stout I made. So, I figured I'd use it for this brew. I know a lot of American IPAs are brewed with this strain and that's why I decided to give it a shot.
The 1098 left me with a clean, crisp beer. Attenuation was good. Give it a shot. It does its thing and allow your malt(s) and hops to do all the talking.
