Depends on what you want, obviously. 1728 is clean cool. It will go big too. I say try it. Pitch at about 60 and when the krausen starts falling walk it up to 65-68.

Count me as another who has never got any smoky ester from 1728.

I'm more than willing to admit that possibly the reason I found it a couple times is due to the power of suggestion.

I stopped reading at this point so not sure what comes next but, I contract brew a series of scotch ales for a local pub and I get a little bit of smoke out of the beer. It's faint. It could be because I boil it for 3 hours. I dunno. But it is definitely there and I have wondered if it is from the yeast.

You can see some of the untapped comments below also mention smoke. (It's better than a 3.7 stars out of 5 ... whatever ::)

I have used this strain a lot for my Scotch Ales, and I typically ferment at about 55-56 F. The profile is really nice with wonderful malt notes shinning through and the attenuation is great.

I've rarely used a fermenter where I can see the krausen, to know when it has fallen.  Do you know about how long it takes this strain to reach that point at those cooler temperatures?  60 for Jim and 55-56 for Fermented-minds? I would be glad to hear your experiences, as I am pretty convinced that I will be keeping a 60-70 Schilling Scottish Ale on my regular tap rotation this fall and through the foreseeable future.

I use it @ 58 -60F for Scottish styles and it's very clean. Love it.
