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

Classic American strain. I prefer it over WLP 001

It is a classic yeast and I have never used it before. I prefer to use Wyeast because it has the built in nutrient packet giving it an advantage over the other yeast products that are just pure yeast.

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 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.

The yeast was very fresh. Fresher than what I can buy locally. Freshest yeast I have ever purchased.

Used this to make a West Coast IPA. Vigorous fermentation within 12 hours, had to use a blow-off tube! Complete fermentation in 10 days at recommended temperatures, no off flavors. Am currently using again for a Rye IPA.

I'd use it again.
I haven't tasted the results yet but this was some really hard working yeast.

My favorite yeast by far.
I use this in just about everything I brew except porters and stouts. By far one of the best yeast strains in my opinion.

Great for clean, crisp beer at low 60s fermentation
I use 1056 and 1272 for the majority of American beer styles. 1056 has high attenuation and produces a clean, crisp ale when fermented in the low 60s. I also recommend using 1272, especially if you enjoy a touch more bready backend on the beer. I typically grow starters a week before and cold crash/ decant the day of and let the yeast warm up as I brew. Then oxygenate for 60-90 seconds, never takes more than 6-12 hours to form krausen.
