Default American Ale Yeast Showdown 01

I just completed the first in a series of small batch yeast experiments and thought I'd post the results here.

Nice work, and well presented.

I have been somewhat obsessed with 1332 (Wyeast Northwest) since this spring. I purchased some for a planned American Amber Ale, but then discovered that it came to Hale's by way of the Gale's brewery in the UK. I put it to work on two of the four Gale's clone recipes I have in my library, and the results couldn't have been more English.

Which is all a long way of saying, when you do your English ale yeast comparison, consider throwing 1332 into the mix. It is quite lovely in a bitter, and I think it would be fantastic in a dry stout, if you could manage to get it dry enough.

You did a great job with this write up. Thank you for sharing.

I recently switched to WY1272 as my "house" American strain and love it. I have used it in 2 Scottish Ales, 2 Pale Ales and a Cream Ale. Going to do an IPA with it soon.

Science Fair blue ribbon for you!

I will definitely be referring to your results when concocting future recipes.

Would love to see a WY1056 vs WLP001 vs Safale S-05 battle.
