Title: Suggestions for 1450 Denny's Favorite
Post by: hopfenundmalz on December 03, 2009, 01:55:29 AM
I have a pack of the 1450 for Denny's Rye IPA.   Brewed this several times, but not with the recommended yeast.

Any suggestions for a smaller beer for the first beer, then use the yeast cake for the Rye IPA?

Anyone can comment, not just Denny!

my house APA became my favorite all time APA when I switched to 1450 with it - Simcoe/Amarillo - can't go wrong.

my favorite beers with 1450 have actually been dark beers - my house porter and my munich based stout were killer with it.

I have 2 APA's in process.  So I am leaning to a porter right now.  Thanks for the advice.

Check out my Nick Danger porter recipe.  It works great with that yeast.

Thanks for the catch, Paul!  Doing too many things at once today!  I fixed it (again!).

only happened to notice as I remember I needed to learn how to use the recipe wiki as a couple folks asked for my Dort and Viennabock recipes!

The recipe wiki rocks!  It's a great single location for archiving recipes.  I intend to get all my favorites in there eventually.

will be trying to use it tomorrow morning - might be asking some questions, unless a cave man can do it.

In the main page for each style, there's an "Add A Recipe" button that provides great instructions.  I don't know about cavemen, but I think even a financial guy should be able to do it!  ;)

I've only used it once and that was in a Brown Ale. I think the beer turned out great.

As my internet research has convinced me that 1450 is North Coast's strain, I would say it produces excellent pale ales and stouts. You could try a dry stout with it - though you would have to work extra-hard to make sure none of that dark roasty beer ended up mixing with your fresh rye IPA wort.

The plan is to harvest from the bottom of the conical.  One can get a good slug of just slurry that way.
 
Any chance that you can fill us in on the yeast lineage and your internet investigations?  Just currious.

I was doing some research looking for a clone of Red Seal Ale, when I came across an old thread on the green boards where someone mentioned North Coast got their strain from the yeast bank at UC Davis (my alma mater). The same thread mentioned that a North Coast brewer took it to Brewtek and that it became CL50. Brewtek CL50 = Wyeast 1450, so I figure there is a very good chance that 1450 is North Coast's house strain - for their American style beers, anyway.

Thanks Skyler.  Denny had said in the past that he had the Brewtek CL-50 way back in the day, and kept it going.

I have smaked my pack of 1450, and will brew later in the week.

I am happy to report 1450 fermented a golden ale and I just bottled my version of Waldo Lake Amber (Cascades, FWH; Columbus Bittering; Amarillo Aroma) that fermented on the yeast cake - I can't wait for the bottles to condition!!

I look forward to using it year-round soon.
