041 Pacific Ale
« on: April 30, 2010, 11:39:43 AM »
My pro buddy offerred me some 041 slurry - any opinions out there?  Should I try it out? 

Only read mixed reviews online, but not from folks I'm familiar with, thus why I'm asking here.

Only 1 way to find out, right?

I've only used it once... on an american wheat

It was a strong fermenter.  I did not make a starter and it was done in about 3 days (1.055 OG to 1.010 @ 65*F)

It pulled everything down too.  I had an extremely clear beer after about 3 weeks in the bottle.

For what it's worth, that's my input.  Pretty clean strain from my experience.  Not much fruitiness or other esters (which I was hoping for some at least)

The yeast will clear from the beer well, and a leave a malty profile. More fruity than WLP002- English Ale yeast. Good yeast from English style ales including mild, bitter, IPA, porter and English style stout. White Labs 041 Pacific Ale Yeast is a popular ale yeast from the Pacific .
