Wyeast 1728 Scottish Ale

(1/11) > >>

I just picked some of this up and I was going to use it for a Scottish 70 and possibly for a IPA or IIPA.  I have never used this strain before and I was wondering if anyone could give me some idea of what to expect.  Any comments would be appreciated.

Clean yeast, works well at temps down to 50F.

This yeast can throw a very nice low smoke phenolic,  Great for Scottish/Strong Scotch Ales.  Solid yeast, is otherwise clean,  I like it a lot.  As Denny said it performs well cool and can easily handle higher alcohols.

The hops in an IPA or IIPA will totally overpower any smoke so don't worry about that aspect.

I also like this yeast.

Thanks- I think I will start out with a Scottish today and make a IIPA next.
