WLP060 American Ale Yeast Blend
« on: June 10, 2012, 02:20:19 PM »
Has anyone tried out this yeast from White Labs? I've used it twice now but still not sure how i like the results. Both were american style pale ales and the yeast seemed to obliterate through the sugar having an attenuation of 83% finishin around 1.009. Both beers i mashed in at 153 and fermented at 72. I was hoping the FG would fall around 1.013 with no such luck. Just looking for peoples experiences

Ive done split batches with this strain in a couple beers that I use 001 in. My IPA, Scott ale, Brown Ale and BarleyWine. For me it tends to attenuate a bit less than 001, and I mean like a point or 2 less. The hops didnt show through as much, left a bit more fruit and maltiness in the beer. I really dug it in my Scottish 70/- but not so much in the IPA, or Brown Ale.
