Recipe? Process? Other details? This sounds almost impossible...

I have used 090 a few times. I do a Sierra Nevada clone using it and it rocks! http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f66/high...le-ale-425144/

090 is quickly becoming my house strain. It ferms FAST, high floc rating and the flavor is awesome....no fruity tastes or unwanted off flavors.

Don't want to threadjack since it appears my issues have less to do with this yeast and more to do with who knows what. Started another thread about this here:

No you just lose the "super." It can throw a little hot alcohol if fermented warm or without oxygen. O2 also is what helps it flocculate harder than US-05. In order to get super performance out of it (fast ferment, hard floc, clean flavor) you need to ferment in it's happy place (67-68) and use plenty of O2.

My ferm temps are right around 70* and it performs great. But, yes, I oxygenate really well...then it's like throwing gasoline on a fire.

YMMV but I wouldn't recommend fermenting this strain colder then the recommended temps. It doesn't give off flavors but takes way longer to ferment the beer. I didn't really notice it being any cleaner then fermenting in the recommended range so really no benefit to it as far as I have seen..

I second this, not because of personal experience but a friend's- he fermented at 60 and had really poor performance. I always pitch at 65 and let it get up to 67/68, works beautifully. And for oxygen, I pitch good starters and use a little plastic thing connected to the end of the hose that goes to my carboy from the BK... I've never had attenuation problems or off flavors.

I'm at the 5 day mark on a 1.072 DIPA using WLP090 and down to 1.028. I stepped up a small vial that I saved from a previous starter I made. Fermented between 62-65F. There's still krausen on top. I shook to aerate and was under the impression I used the appropriate amount of cells of 090. I'm scratching my head. Wait it out? Pitch more yeast?

warm it up or just wait it out longer - the ideal range is 65-68deg
