Now, a real question about 1007: how versatile is this yeast? Could I use it to produce an "American-style" pale ale?
Heck, yeah! I refer to it as "German 1056". It works great in any beer where you want a clean yeast character. Several months back I recommended it to a guy for a dry stout. I heard back from him recently that it made an outstanding stout. I've used it for APA and IPA with great results.
And I SWEAR to you I had nothing to do with the naming of 1450!
