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

For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast.

Please Note: When choosing an ice pack option beware that the liquid yeast will not arrive cold even when shipped together. Ice packs and insulated mailing options are designed to keep the yeast colder for longer during shipment, but they will not ensure that your yeast arrives cold. We will not replace liquid yeast that arrives warm. During warmer months we strongly recommend you choose dry yeast.

My inner package in the Wyeast packet did not rupture to mix. I mixed them together manually by cutting the inner package inside the packet. The beer came out fine but I'm wondering if this happens very often?
Don Murphy on Jun 2, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I have the same issue from time-to-time. I live at 7600 feet, so the package is partially expanded when I get it. The key is to not be afraid you rupture the package smacking it...that’s practically impossible. Try to get the inner package in one corner and beat the snot (or nutrient) out of it ;-0

The yeast was great. Didn’t need a starter. I had it for a month before using it and it worked great. Only took a couple hours for it to start fermenting like crazy.

It was good and performed well but I had to make a starter because it didn’t come with an ice pack. Last time I ordered an ice pack it came with two so I thought I didn’t need to order one. Turns out you do.

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!
