First, has anyone tried this yeast yet and, if so, can you relate your experience?

Second, does anyone have any educated guesses as to the source brewery? I've seen it speculated to be the Green Flash yeast, but not sure if that is a blind guess.

I was at GABF last weekend and asked the Wyeast rep about the source. He said, "I don't know... I can't say." And kind of laughed, so I'm guessing he was under some sort of gag order.

I'm wondering about the source as well.

Never tried it. I'd be interested to see how it differs from other West Coast originating yeasts like 1056 and 1272.

I picked up a pkg yesterday @ my LHBS. I'm going to try it in an IPA recipe I've done numerous times so I'll have feedback in a few weeks.

Great, please post back later with results, govner1. I'm picking up a package at my LHBS next weekend and will probably brew an IPA or DIPA with it soon after.

The Wyeast guy told me it is very clean like 1056 if fermented cool, but more flocculant and attenuative than 1056.

I used this yeast this weekend. Pitched it Sunday afternoon and it was gassing when I checked it Monday morning. Now it is Tuesday and it has already stopped gassing. This seems odd to me. The temp is 70F. Any clues why it has stopped so quickly?

The gassing has completely stopped after less than 48 hrs. I've never experienced this before. I rarely make IPAs. Is this normal?

Do I want to open the fermenter this soon? Should I wait a few more days since it has only been three since I pitched the yeast? Is 72F too warm to pitch this yeast? Is 70F too warm for fermentation?

What do you mean by 'gassing'? I guess you can't see the wort/beer? What kind of fermentor is it? What airlock is on it?
