Professional brewer here. It's quick becoming our go-to for hazy IPAs. Nice, rounded profile that leaves some fruity sweetness.

Make hazy baby!
Great yeast for New England IPAs. It a classic English strain that’s good for most styles where you need that more sweet fruity character.

Delicious and clears beautifully
I just used this with MoreBeer Mild Brown Ale and it’s fantastic. It nearly came out of my 6.5 gallon carboy though so I might the larger Speidel next time, and top crop while I’m at it.

Powerful Yeast!
Very good yeast, this does not need a starter, i used it making a starter for a 5.5 gallon batch and it was crazy powerful. In the future will make it with the starter and split it in half and make 2 batches from it.

Super fruity yeast, works so well with hazy IPA. Tends to start a bit vigorous, I have had to switch from airlock to blow off tube with 1318.

More Yeast!
I used this yeast brewing the MoreHaze Double New England IPA (KIT 1600) and it came out fantastic. I started with a 2L starter (1.040 SG) on a stir plate and let it spin for 48 hours. The color of the start went from a relatively dark "fresh wort" color to what could be best described as a "light Werthers caramel" colored indicating that there was a HUGE amount of suspended yeast in solution. Cold crashed the starter the night before the brew day, let sit for a few hours out of the fridge while brewing, poured off the clear liquid and pitched. I aerated using a paint mixer and drill that churned air into the wort like nobodies business. Finished brewing around 9PM, by the next morning fermentation had started and looked healthy but by the afternoon it was at ROAR. If my blow off tube had not been connected well it would have blown around like a wack waving inflatable arm flailing tube man.

Simply didn’t work
Didn’t work. Not a single bubble. Nada. Zilch. Nothing. Pitched on a NEIPA wort at 72-74 degrees. 1.056-1.058 OG. Not a solitary bubble. No fermentation at all. Guess I got a dud bag. Very disappointed and frustrated. Won’t buy again.

Go to yeast for British Ales
This is my go to yeast for English Bitters, Special and ESB. I pitch 1 package for a 5 gln brew. I additionally add 2.4 grams of Wyeast nutrient 10 minutes before flameout on the boil.
Pitch the yeast at 69 - 70F. Vigorous fermentation the next day. Fermentation is complete in roughly 4 days.

NEIPA Madness
Used for making a New England IPA. Developed desirable "juicy" flavor in abundance. I highly recommend this yeast for that style.
