I'm a big fan of WLP001. How does it compare and/or differ from 001.

i'm shocked you haven't tried it yet, bluesman.

the quick hits: bigger mouthfeel and slightly more accentuation on the malt character, slightly less attenuation (though that is certainly subjective).

I have found successive pitches yield greater attenuation than the first, bringing it in line with 001.  That is based only on 4 new packs though.  I am currently fermenting my Cents IPA with a 1st gen of it, so we'll see if I have the same result.

Cheers.

Much fuller mouthfeel, kinda silky.  Never having used 001 more than once, that's about the best I can do!

I will have to pick some up and give it a try. Maybe an APA to start.

goes well with a simcoe/amarillo pale ale, I can attest!

done it twice - comes out great - I prefer US-05 on that one though - strictly personal preference though.

bluesman - cents and cascade are classic - bitter with columbus??

Gotta say I was very pleased with 1450's perfomance with my hoppy red ale (something like mendocino's red tail ale or north coast's red seal) - it made a nice, creamy, balanced American-style beer. But, I wasn't as happy with 1450's perfomance in less-balanced hoppy beer I used it for. I made an all-Amarillo IPA (very simple recipe) and the beer is a good deal less "hoppy" than it should be on paper. Also, I think the creamy mouthfeel just doesn't work for me with the style. So, I would say that the yeast is great for darker beers and maltier ones, but not my first choice in a standard west coast pale ale or IPA.

Interesting. I'd say it's my favorite IPA yeast.
