Saw this yeast on White Labs site the last time I was there and wrote it down as something to try. I'm thinking of using it in an APA. Has anyone had any experience with it? This is what it says about it on the site: From Northern California. This strain is more fruity than WLP001, and slightly more flocculant. Attenuation is lower, resulting in a fuller bodied beer than with WLP001.

I have used it for a stout. I liked it, but I never used it again. Not sure why.

It gives a really nice apricot/peach like fruitiness to an APA especially when backed up by lots of Simcoe & Amarillo hops! I like using it for West Coast-style Browns, Porters & Stouts and use it exclusively in my RIS recipe. I think DC is a fan of it as well? Give it a try!

It's supposed to be similar to Wyeast 1272, which is one of my favorite strains.

I've used it side by side with WLP001. It finished a little faster and a little lower, and resulted in a slighly fruity finish vs clean WLP001. I liked it.

I've always found that this yeast finishes a little higher than wlp001, due to higher flocculation/lower attenuation.
I haven't used another yeast in my american IPA's since I used this one.

I have not used it but use 1272 alot. If it is the same as 1272 it does a fantastic APA in combination with Cascades and similar citrusy hops.

I've used it in Denny's RIPA as my LBBS doesn't carry Wyeast and I don't have time to fool with stepping up any CL-50. I agree with the others comments on the more fruity and less attentive than the Chico yeast.
