I've used it in IPAs before. As they state on their website, it is similar to 002, the Fuller's strain, but in my experience less fruity and more hop-forward. I use the Fuller's strain in my brown, and I've seen it attenuate as high as 75% (I've got such a beer on tap right now, and it's great), so it should be an excellent combo if you follow the high mash temp and extra crystal suggestion.

I use this yeast regularly. It will attenuate up to 80% if it gets warm or if you mash thin and low. Thin being the bigger deal. I would mash at no more than 1.25qt per Lb. And go a little high.

It cakes up like cottage cheese and floccs like a brick. It ferments fast and gives a wonderful flavor to browns.

It os the house yeast of many many breweries. Its used in Surly Bender which is a top 10 brown in my opinion. It's a,so used in Pullman Brown which is another top 10. Pullman uses molasses as well.

Can you post full recipe.

Def use the yeast in the brown. You can only learn and get better from this experience, your already thinking ahead to plan out your proper attenuation.

Looks great. I like to add Simpsons Golden Naked Oats....there awesome in browns....secret ingredient for sure.

Also I like a little aromatic malt or special B.

If you add more specialty just up your IBU. Maybe another .5 oz goldings at flameout

Anybody else have any recipe suggestions? This is a style I haven't quite nailed down yet. I was thinking some honey malt, as I have some of that one hand, as well as melanoidin. Any suggestions are welcome, other than a yeast change. I am definitely going with WLP007 at this point.

OK so I brewed on 6/3. OG was 1.049, right now (6/8/2011) it is sitting at 1.020. It has been hanging out around there for a few days. The past three days it has dropped maybe 2 points. I only started checking the gravity because I noticed the krausen dropped after 3 days. This worried me so I took a reading. I wanted my gravity left a bit higher, but this is nuts. I have since swirled and warmed up the beer. It is sitting at about 77 right now, and has been for over a day. Still not much going on. Anything else I can do to get this to drop a few more points?

i brewed an ESB 1.055 with wlp007 recently

got down to 1.013 within 10days or so, after i checked gravity another week or so later it was down to 1.010 and when i racked it secondary to dry hop (at 4 week mark) it was down to 1.008 (85% attenuation!)

mash temp was around 151 and ratio was ~1.33qt/lb

i am having a hard time trying to wash this strain (my 1st attempt at washing). I can't get a clean separation from the trub and yeast and just get 1 mixed layer.

Ok, perhaps it's just slow to finish. This is yeast I top cropped awhile ago, but the starter took off, and I pitched a 2L starter. I just expected this to be done rather quickly because I over pitched .... Guess not. I also wasn't able to top crop this any because the krausen dropped so quickly.

I guess we'll see if it keeps dropping. I mashed a bit thick and a bit high, so I expected a higher FG, just not this high.
