Description

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

Great yeast for clean finish ales.
Great clean ale yeast. I made a 1L starter for this yeast and pitched into wort. Within 2 hrs active fermentation was achieved. Within 12 hrs it was fermentation madness! Very good yeast for all clean style ales!

Fresh yeast delivered
The yeast from Morebeer was very fresh. Within an hour of pitching from the fermentation had already started. Did not make a starter.

A practical solution to brewing at home.
Mail order is a practical solution during these stay at home times. My order was filled exactly as I ordered it; one needs to allow about a week to receive the order after placing the order.

It arrived swollen and warm. It was unusable. I don't plan to order liquid yeast through the mail again.

Response from MoreFlavor
Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that liquid yeast will arrive cold because some areas may be warmer than others, the ice packs only stay cold for so long, and transit times range between states. When yeast arrives warm there is no way to know if it is still viable or not unless you use it to see what it does. WY1056 will almost always arrive a little swollen because off gassing is more prone for this strain. If the warm yeast that you received shows no activity in a starter or the fermenter we'd be more than happy to send you a replacement or refund you for the yeast. Please give us a call at 1-800-600-0033 or email us at info@moreflavor.com so that we can assist you. We are here to help. Cheers!

Works great
This yeast is crazy fast and vigorous. Woke up next day to a huge foam ball and vigorous fermentation already going. First time I tried the slap pack. I'll use this next time in my Pliny the Elder.
