60 day no hassle return policy. Details

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

Very good yeast. It activated quickly and was a good choice for the beer I made. Would definitely buy again!

Good stuff
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 as always
1318 has always been reliable for me. I love it for my NEIPAs. I’m using it this time to brew the All Together recipe. Surprisingly it has fermented slower this time (usually goes pretty quick), it’s at 1.021 (65% AA) after 5 days, but is continuing to slowly ferment. The beer currently smells and looks great.

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.
