This terrific all-round yeast can be used for almost any beer style, and is a mainstay of one of our local homebrewers, Mr. Denny Conn. It is unique in that it produces a big mouthfeel and accentuates the malt, caramel, or fruit character of a beer without being sweet or under-attenuated.

Go to yeast for any rye beer! My Amber and my rye pale ale are brewed with this yeast. Both use rye and for some reason this is my favorite yeast when it comes to rye beers. It’s just clean as heck. That’s all I have to say about that.
This is by far the best yeast I have used on brown ales. The mouthfeel is outstanding as is the attenuation and beer clarity. Very clean with no esters, it lets the malt shine through.
Package came slightly swollen but I rack this up to USPS, they are pretty bad here in Wisconsin so it's not farmhouses or wyeasts mistake. Did a 1 liter starter with this bad boy to make sure it was viable, pitched it into a simple wheat ale recipe that will eventually be put on 6lbs of rhubarb and 5.5lbs of strawberry. It looked really powdery in the started so it's definitely low flocculation like the stats page says, hoping to use this to my advantage and the yeasties floating around will ferment out a good chunk of the sugar from the fruit.
