Very clean, crisp flavor characteristics with low fruitiness and mild ester production. A very versatile yeast for styles that desire dominant malt and hop character. This strain makes a wonderful “House” strain. Mild citrus notes develop with cooler 60-66°F (15-19ºC) fermentations. Normally requires filtration for bright beers.

Please note that 1056 American Ale has been known to bloat when shipping due to the yeast "off-gassing". Please put this yeast in your refrigerator when received, as the yeast will be fine and should still be viable. To view Wyeast's FAQ on what to do with bloated packages, please visit the following link: Wyeast's FAQ

Wyeast 1056
All packages were relatively flat when received (good). All packages inflated fully within ~ 8 hours indicating good yeast health. Delivery was prompt.

Very Clean
I really like this yeast for American Pale Ales and IPA's and also for American Porter recipes and some Stout recipes also. Very clean yeast and will let the hop or malt character come through without adding additional clashing esters or flavor.

Clean fermenter
I used this in a pumpkin ale. I made a one pint starter and gravity went from 1.051 to 1.011. I got a clean fermentation that let the pie spices shine through.

Great for IPAs and pales
While you can get better flocculation, this strain seems to leave some more hop flavor which is awesome for you hop-heads.
