My pleasure! And there's more to come- I've got some friends coming over next weekend who will be tasting the 2 blind and giving me their opinions, which I'll post.

I forgot about this. Both beers are long gone, but the hands down favorite amongst friends and brew club members was the 090.

I am currently fermenting 5 gallons of Graff with 090. For my last batch of graff I used 001 and it took about 6 weeks to reach a FG of 1.008.

Has anyone else used 090 to ferment graff?

Thanks for the write up. This was exactly the information I was looking for.

I'm planning to do an Alesmith IPA clone tomorrow with WLP090. OG 1.073, 93 IBUs. Recipe here http://byo.com/english-scottish-stro...the-hop-clones.

Do you guys think a 1L starter will be enough for that? I plan to pitch at around 68-70F and let it pretty much stay at 68 throughout primary.

I've actually underpitched this yeast in the past and it worked out really well, so as long as your starter is made with a fresh vial, I think you'll be fine.

Cheers!

I'm currently fermenting my first batch with WLP001. it's a DIPA OG 1.078. I pitched the yeast Friday of the week before last. (sept 4). Fermometer said I was steady at 68F. Over the weekend I blew into the air lock. Last week, I popped the lid off my fermenter (Sept 10). I was amazed to still see krausen. gravity was still around around 1.030 but it tasted fine. I still have slow airlock activity today (Sept 15) but, I racked into secondary anyway. I had almost NO yeast cake - but there was obviously still a lot of yeast in suspension. gravity is around 1.015 now so, I'm attenuating nicely and the hops are really coming through.


The question is this - I can see through this thread that WLP001 is slow. But dang. Is it really THIS slow? Is my experience in line with what other have experienced with WLP001?

Reason: grammar error

No, its different than my experience with WLP001. Usually, for medium sized beers, fermentation will be done in 10 days, tops. At least in my experience.

Well, then maybe I'm not so far off. Airlock is really settling down over the last couple days (largely stopped 13 days in). And this is going to be a monster. I expect to be above 8.5 - 9% ABV.

I'm calling it "Christmas Ale" Loaded with piney Chinook hops so it smells like a Christmas tree - and high enough alcohol to let you deal with your in-laws.
