Here's a photo comparing WLP001 (left) and WLP009 (right) after about a week of cold/keg conditioning:



It may be hard to tell in this pic, but the 090 is noticeably more bright than the 001. And I'm finally starting to taste a few differences, though I'm wondering if the 001 will start to take on similar characteristics as it continues to clear up. Either way, the 001 tastes very clean- neutral malt with an emphasis on hops, just as you might expect from this strain. The 090 seems to accentuate the malt a tad more, though the hops still shine... I'll admit, I'm wondering if there's something else going on here, as the taste difference is pretty obvious. Hmm.

They're both good and I'm still hard pressed to choose one I prefer over the other.

It's been a couple weeks and the 090 (left) is significantly more bright than the 001. It also has a more "Englishy" flavor. I like it better. The 001 is still very hazy, but tastes delicious too, a tad cleaner.

Pulled of a pint of the WLP001 last night just to see if it is brightening up at all. Nope, still just as hazy as the last update. But delicious no less

Very interesting write up, thanks! WLP001 has been my go-to strain lately for many of my beers. You haven't convinced me to try the 090.

I'd make a terrible lawyer

WLP001 is a great and very predictable yeast, hence the reason it's most folks' go-to. Actually, I've used it for my last 4 batches too. But, I really like 090 as well and plan to keep it in regular rotation. One thing I'm pretty certain of: 090 is not a more flocculant version of 001.

I have a Pale made with the SD Super 090 and it is very bright coming out of the keg. The beer is about 4 weeks old and the clarity is almost as good as DE filtered. The flavor has a mild, but firm, malt presence with a good hop back bone. Wish I were at home drinking it right now.
