Something about wyeast 1028 London Ale just rubs me the wrong way. I'll admit it was a little misplaced in my most recent ESB, but it just gives too big a flavor even for a robust porter. When I drink that beer it tastes like I am chewing in the crust of some pumpernickel bread.

I know it's the yeast contributing to that flavor because it was consistent in the ESB & Porter.

Any yeasts you gents (and ladies) have had zero success with?

I don't like S-04, I've used it several times and never liked the results.

WB-06 is disappointing. It doesn't come close to what I expect from liquid Hefeweizen strains.

the dupont saison strain. has stalled out on me all three times I have used it. tried raising the temps all the way up in the 90's, resuspending the yeast, gave it three extra weeks. everything. nothing worked.

oh yeah, the wb-06 for me tastes like a clove bomb. I like some banana and bubble gum in my hefes.


also, ringwood ale yeast tastes horrible to me. like buttered popcorn.

1028 makes a great English IPA..
A couple times, it's also given me some very strong and unpleasant (metallic) flavors in green beer, but after 3 - 4 weeks maturing, the beer tasted great.

s-05, I just can't get a profile I like, I wanted to like dry yeast too. It has a sulfur/peach thing at low temps and an apple/pear thing I don't care for in the high 60s.

s-04 I like better, but stopped using. I do not use the liquid "equivalent" either.

My final shot at dry yeast is going to be 34/70. I want to do some side by side tests with the liquid equivalent (830). I've been really digging the Ayinger yeast though so I'll have to break away from that to do the test.

In regards to the wyeast 1028-I really like it in a robust porter, but i like it better when i'm on the verge of overpitching. I did really dislike the wyeast belgian 1214. I fermented at a solid 67-68 and ended up drinking bananas. I would take one drink and belching bananas. Yuk

These sound like procedural problems to me, more specifically your fermentation temps are off.

I have used these yeasts and did not have those issues.
