I love pale ales and IPA's. I make starters and re-pitch washed yeast. What are you all using for these styles besides 1056/001. Is there a yeast I should try? Thanks

I've used 002 on a couple IPA's. They turned out great...gives it a hint of sweet fruity character. I ferment with this one on the low end at about 64 to keep the esters to a minimum when doing the IPA's.

I've had good luck with German Ale yeast. It's very clean. I think the Chico strains do a little better with higher temps and temp fluctuations, though. I would definitely recommend temp control with the German Ale yeast.

Gotta agree... I made several really nice blondes/pale ales/IPAs, along with a Koelsch with WLP029 last winter. But it needs to be in the low 60s. (I tried to make a second Koelsch this spring before I had temp control and a sudden warm spell that put it into the low 70s gave it a very clove-heavy flavor.) Real clean, but slow to flocculate.

Another idea... follow the trend and play with IPAs with Belgian yeast...

WLP530 wtih some Wheat in the recipe and cool ferment temps. Leaves a tingle of Belgian taste which I like. If I ferment it warm it leaves all the Belgian character and makes me sad.

I like the Belgian yeasts a lot. Kept me brewing even in my 80-degree house all summer. (I have lousy insulation, but it's a rental. I'm not paying to fix it.)

I've done a few IPAs recently with Wyeast 1332 Northwest Ale...adds a bit more richness. Just enjoyed a Juniper Rye IPA with that yeast...very nice.

i just made one with 007. not sure how the beer will turn out yet, but the starter was pretty cool with the high flocculation rate
