120 is usually the protein rest, where the sacc rest is in the 145-158 range (depending on how
fermentable you want your wort).Most mashes don't need a super long protein rest, if any. You
might want ...

The bigger hop bill of an IPA is a likely cause. Hop assist in head retention of a beer, and
think of the bubbly krausen as akin to a head. There could also be a little more protein than

I've used both - just finished an extra pale ale with S-05, and have an excellent super saison
from Belle. I also brewed a pils with a WL vial, and a strong Belgian with a Wyeast. My
