Title: Wyeast 1332 Northwest Ale
Post by: brandomselect on May 24, 2011, 06:31:47 PM
The description for this ale says, "One of the classic ale strains from a Northwest U.S. Brewery." Does anybody have any idea what brewery they're talking about, just curious.

I think it's Hale's yeast, which Mike Hale got from Gale's in the UK when he brewed there.

That's also what the yeast strain guide (http://www.mrmalty.com/yeast.htm#Wyeast (http://www.mrmalty.com/yeast.htm#Wyeast)) says on Mr. Malty

Looks like Kris and I have the same source then, although most brewers around here have heard the story that Mike got his yeast there (some say he stole it).

I thought it was Full Sail since Wyeast started off FS.

I just tried it for the first time recently. The starter had blow off, my 30L speidel had blow off. Pitched to 5.5 gal of 1.050 APA on 8/8 and 10 days later its at 1.009 and still has a thick krausen. Nice clean profile though. That will be a tasty summer pale. Can't wait.

Wyeast 1332 is a relatively new addition to the Wyeast culture collection.  While my memory may be failing me, the Wyeast catalog contained the following ale cultures when I started brewing in early 1993:

Wyeast 1007 German Ale
Wyeast 1028 London Ale
Wyeast 1056 American Ale
Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale
Wyeast 1098 British Ale (I am fairly sure that it was called Whitbread Ale at that point in time)
Wyeast 1214 Belgian Abbey Ale
Wyeast 1338 European Ale

I also recall that there was also a wheat strain, but I do not recall the number.

Cool. 1332 is their NW Ale strain and they claim it comes from a local brewery. Like I said, my guess is Full Sail. Just a guess, and I imagine it came from somewhere else before that... I was just amazed at what a beast it was.

The similarly end at the goatee.  Tom is a super genius and a handsome devil, where as I am more like Wile E Coyote on both counts. Where is the Doctor anyway? I assume busy brewing and businessing. Has anyone heard from him?

I met Tom at the NHC in Grand Rapids - his talk was on everything about beer dispensing from kegs, line balancing, etc...quite informative.  It sounded like his brewery was taking up a lot of time, together with his academic pursuits kept him very busy.

Great guy.  My takeaway was to change your beer lines periodically, run your beer cleaner backward in the lines, and start with a longish dispense line and trim until the beer foams to the desired level.  (And buy the beer line in bulk!)

Other than a couple brief emails re: GC stuff, not a peep.  Judging by what he told me at NHC, at this point he's probably up to his elbows in alligators.

Yeah, once all the paperwork was in place, he had a very quick build out. He may have lots of SS alligators to wrestle. ;)
