So, I just want to have this written, after 4 beers (and more coming) from one vial of SDSY, this is my new house yeast. The beers finish fast, this yeast drops out like a MOFO, and leaves a very clean crisp finish that has a great highlight on hops and malt alike.

I found it -- my new house and goto yeast.

Been meaning to try it. I used rogue yeast last and kicked myself for not saving any for later.

Fermentation of an RIS at 1.090 down to 1.25 in 2 days? It was crazy, damn thing fermented like a starter.

Brewed my christmas spice ale with this yeast. I'll report back in a couple of months on the taste. Fermentation seemed to go very well, though.

Just put my starter on the stir plate. I'm doing an all Citra hopped IPA PM (Three Floyd's Zombie Dust clone). Couldn't decide if I wanted to use WLP001 or try 007 when I stumbled upon 090. This sounds like it could be the best of both worlds.

Fermentation really took off! Getting rapid bubbles through the blow off in under 2 hours.

I used this yeast in a 1.066 OG IPA. I fermented at exactly 65degF. Fermentation was complete in 4 days. FG was 1.015 (just a little higher than I'd hoped). I'm getting some light pear esters and flocculation is poor. I'll definitely be trying this yeast again but I'll probably go down to 62degF to see if I can get those esters out while maintaining the fast fermentation time.

Getting towards the end of a high gravity IIPA brewed with SSY which I added onto an order from NB because I can't get White Labs locally. The IIPA turned out great and I was impressed with SSY, in particular because I probably ended up under-pitching due to a mishap with the starter flask, but the beer still fermented quickly and cleanly. I taste a little bit more in the way of esters with this yeast using my standard IIPA recipe than I do when I use PacMan (which is normally my go-to yeast for IIPA's) and that is not a bad thing at least as far as I am concerned. Reminds me of a Wyeast PacMan/Am Ale II combo if such a thing existed. Nice yeast.

Holler!

Just used this yeast for the first time... yowza! That puppy fermented out quick, flocc'd just fine, and left me with a crisp and well-balanced beer (1.049 OG, simple pale grist bill with English hops). Brewing this weekend and thinking about changing plans a bit... was considering a Hef using WLP029, but now I'm thinking I'll brew up a IIPA using SSY... plus I just got my order of Centennial, Simcoe, Cascade, and CTZ hops.

Word.
