How long did that take? My issue with cold crashing (alone) isn't the results, just the amount of time needed. Several weeks, IME.

my cold crash in carboy was 34F for a week, then kegged and continued for another week at 34F.  then brought it up to my keg frig at normal temps. after couple glasses its good to go.

I haven't tried that yet; may give it a shot one of these days. I've been using 1272 for a while for basically the same reasons - relatively neutral but highly flocculent.

My SOP is 2-3 days cold crashing, then 2-3 days in the keg with BioFine. I know it's basically cheating, but this APA is 17 days old:

That's pretty much my SOP lately, Sean. I really like the Biofine. Great looking APA btw. Nice lacing.

looks great-never tried BioFine and might come in handy with some of my other yeast/brews.

as far as sandiego,its become one of my favorites when im looking for pretty much all malt and hops character vs yeast . its wicked fast - in and out like a sailor at port.

I tried WY 1217 when it was out, IIRC the equivalent. I liked it alot. It fermented like hell for about 2 days and hit FG in less than a week. Flocced a little better than 1056. Accented the hops nicely. I hope Wyeast picks it up as a year round.

I always get much more diacetyl with san diego than american or cali. Although I am sensitive to it.

I only used 1217 once, being a PC release. It made a very clean beer for me, and I'm a diacetyl hater. Never used the WL.

maybe i just need to give them more time. I have also used 1217 with similar results. Besides the diacetyl it is very clean and it does clear up. I had a pale ale score 42 with that yeast last year at dredhop. At the moment I have 10 gallons of IPA with 1056 in one and wlp090 in the other. 1056 has no detectable diacetyl to me while the wlp 090 is not over powering but definitely present.
