Wyeast 1450
« on: December 21, 2009, 08:50:40 AM »
Like many of you, my brewing got placed onto a budget for these economic times. I got my hands on this type of yeast and was just curious as to some of the Fav 50 brews people are brewing with this and the results.. pro or con .. of utilizing this strain(s) with the various styles????    cheers!!

Well, as it turns out I'm pretty familiar with that yeast.  ;)  It's great for almost any American style where you want a clean fermentation profile and a nice full mouthfeel.  I use it for my Rye IPA, any AIPA, APA, American style robust porter.....stuff like that.  You can search the recipe wiki for some of the recipes I use it in.

thanks for the responses denny and bo_,  I like the description you gave denny, it helps tremendously. I believe my next 11 gallon batch will see 5.5 for Wyeast 1450 and 5.5 for my previously harvested yeast.  I can foresee me harvesting the 1450 for future utilization's from now on....  This will be fun for comparisons.... cheers!!

It is really fun to brew a double batch and split it between two different yeasts to what an impact the yeast truly has on the final beer...from what I have done there is a big difference between 1450 and 1056 in the same wort ;D

I'd say yes with a caveat....it's been a long time since that yeast came from Brewtek.  It's been kept in my yeast bank for years and recultured, then given to Wyeast and recultured more.  So I wouldn't be surprised if there were subtle differences by this point.  But it certainly started out as CL-50.

FWIW, I've brewed Denny's Rye IPA, Denny's BVIP, IPAs, APAs, Brown ales and Blonde ales with 1450 and they turned out great! :)

From what I've heard, 1450 should have started being available full time as of last Monday.

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