I am 20 minutes into my mash that this is going to be pitched into. Anyone have any results from this yeast yet?

Is this one of the proprietary strains from a brew shop? Never heard of it

*bump*
How did this turn out? I'm curious whether or not it's worth it to try out this yeast.

Just brewed a Galaxy pale ale kit from AHS and pitched a solid starter of WLP299. Any feedback on this strain?

Have used it twice in a pale ale and a blonde ale. Worked well. Feel like its similar to 001. Maybe a little of the peach fruitiness they mentioned but overall pretty clean. I did ferment in the low-mid 60s. According to the website it seems like it is ok much warmer than that. Not sure I'm brave enough to try at those temps though.

I'll let you know...when I went to check fermentation temps this morning, this thing was CHUGGING away violently and brought itself up to 75*. Hotter than I ferment any of my ales. Gradually brought it down to 68*.

According to White Labs, recommended temperature range for this yeast is 68-78*. I'd say this batch will have some esters! Should go nice with the galaxy hops and simple grain bill though!

I thought the label said 70-78.

I finally got around to using this this weekend. Fermentation seemed to be really active last night at around 76 but slowed down overnight when the temp dropped to 68. I'm gonna try to keep it in the mid 70's to try to get that peach flavor out.

I'm brewing an APA tomorrow and have the option of using WLP001 or WLP299. I know 001 is notorious for being clean and bringing out hop flavors, but the peach/apricot flavors of 299 are appealing to me too. I'm using Falconer's Flight for the first time and I'm torn on which yeast to use.

If I think about it logically, using 001 will allow me the opportunity to see what the FF hops are all about and get a better understanding of the flavor/aroma characteristics.

On the other hand, it sounds like the 7c's blend would make a delicious APA when paired with 299.

Recommendations anyone?
