Not really. I've always liked 1056 a little better. I feel it clears a little easier and is a tad more neutral (though 001 is neutral, all in all). Good work and writeup !

Nice experiment. From my understanding of the results, it looks that some testers explained characteristics of WYeast that other testers explained as characteristics of White Labs. The differences are minimal and basically boils down to personal preference. My preference is White Labs only because it is all that any of my local homebrew stores carry. I've only had 1056 on a couple of occasions and thought it was good. I'm also really pleased with 001 as I am with all White Lab strains that I've used.


On a totally different note, I did pay to have a couple packs of 1450 sent to me  ;) I've never used it before and am looking forward to fermenting an imperial hoppy amber with it!

Good stuff.
Any plans to do the same with the dry versions?
Or any other "Identical" strains like WLP002 and Wyeast 1968 or the Scottish yeasts or Kolsch?

Throwing US05 into the mix is under discussion.  Probably won't do any others for a while just becasue we have so many ideas to get to.

Normally I'm a WLP 001 user. I used S05 for my last IPA that I just kegged today. One thing that I noticed right off hand is the clarity. It seems to stay in suspension much longer than 001. My beers OG was 1.075 and cleaned out to 1.008. I don't cold crash because it seems like an unnecessary step for me. I kegged it today. It will cold crash in the keg. The first pint will be sacrificial in dumping all of the particles that were crashed out.

Yeah, 05 has long been noted to take longer to clear than the others.

Gelatin is pretty effective to clear US-05 beers. Of course, you may not want to do that for an IPA.

Yeah. I really don't care to clear it out.  I was just stating an observation to add onto the experiment.
