I like US-05 and hate US-05. It is clean and leaves a nice hop flavor. However the !@#$ stuff won't floc except with cold crashing/gelatin more often than not. As such I like to use Notty with a high pitch rate to get a really clean ferment and it flocs like a champ!

This. Great fermentation, flocculation, and a clean, balanced beer!

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

I've done 2 DIPAs with Conan and they are 2 of the best IPAs I have ever brewed. I am going to brew a 10 gallon DiPA soon and slip it between 001 and Conan for comparison. But I am planning on keeping Conan around for quite some time.

I've made some fantastic IPAs with Wyeast 2565 Kolsch yeast. Try to hit 62.F and it will be pretty damn amazing.

WLP007 for me. Clean in the low 60's, mild fruity esters in the upper 60's. Ferments fast and drops like a ton of bricks. Speaking of which, I have a starter of WLP007 rolling right now for a IIPA this weekend

+1 S-05 here. Haven't had issues with floc but then I use whirlfloc in the boil and cold crash 1 day before bottling.

On a side note - hope to try Pacman and some others to compare.

I've had great success w/ 1056 & 1272 both always finish cleanly.
I'm trying Denny's Favorite on a rye IPA now. It really took off!

+1 Pacman. It provides my beers and nice "bright" flavor, and hops come through very well. It beat 1056 and 1272 in split batch blind tastings I set up.

I just used the White Labs Kolsch strain (029?) for a DIPA and I was very pleased with the results. I fermented a little cooler than you do because my ferm chamber was tied up with other stuff, but I would go for 62 if I did it again. I liked the esters I got and would have liked a little more of them.

Reason: Adding that I normally use US-05 for my IPAs...
