Looking at Wyeast 1275 and other strains for hoppy brews. Been using S-05 with good results but looking to try something else. Really like Jai Alai for the complex, clean hop taste and some threads (although inconclusive) have posts about CC using 1275.

Opinions/experiences whether related to Jai Alai or not are appreciated.

it would be nice just to see how it does in your hoppy ale compared to US-05. i've tried a few yeasts for my hoppy ales (not 1275) and have always returned to US-05 which has been pretty fool proof for me.

Wlp007 is "Dry English Ale", not Cal Ale. Not sure if I misread your post, but just in case . And FWIW, S-05 and Wlp001 are essentially the same yeast.

Wy1275 is Burton Ale yeast, which would make sense for hop-forward beers. Keep in mind that's a British strain, however, which can mean more esters than a neutral yeast like S-05/001/1056.

You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Wyeast 1028 - london ale is a good choice. Used it on an ESB with good results.

I'm a huge fan of 007 for my IPA's.

Considering Pacman and 1335 from Wyeast if I can get both strains. I'm thinking these will attenuate the higher gravity IPAs whilst leaving a bit of the hop flavor.

Any thoughts or comments appreciated.

Heck, yeah! I looooove Pacman for all my 'Murican style ales. Great ferment, drops clear, neutral flavor, beautiful beer!

Would fermenting at the lower temp (62 F) reduce esters when using 1275?
