Yeah, the reason I said that is that I did an american wheat and wanted to go REALLY clean, tried it at 58.F and got a really strange lychee-ish winey aroma. Only beer I ever made that I couldn't finish. What temp did you do yours at?

In order for an IPA....

1) US-05 --cheap, easy, fast. (I keep about 8 packs on hand for nearly any type of beer).
2) White Labs 007 --Dry English Ale---if I have some (which I currently don't)
3) Wyeast 1764-- Pacman--made a stone ruination clone and hit my gravity numbers with it--attenuates at around 80-82% for me--harvested some of this and will use again soon.

I'm also a WLP090 guy. It's much faster, cleaner, and better floccing than US-05. Love it
