Used in Imperial Brown Pecan
Used to get moderate attenuation for a bigger-than-usual pecan brown. 1.069 OG attenuated down to 1.019 (73% att) - mash was single infusion at 153-154F all barley. Pitched 2L starter (270Bcells) at 64F (low end) then let rise to 67 over 2 days. Then after 4th day let rise to 74 (top end) to finish. Krausen appeared sometime after 24 hours (was a cold start). Fairly clean profile - low esters, really a good clean option for brown or robust porter to leave behind a touch of sweetness. Will definitely use again in this application. Could be good for NEIPA or smaller IPAs too - clean but with just a smidge more sweetness than WLP001.

Great for NEIPAs
So far, I've used it 4x. Says on back of package "make a starter for anything over 1.060". I haven't made a starter yet, and my OGs have ranged from 1.058 to 1.063. FGs fall to around 1.016. Definitely need to make a starter to get lower. For NEIPAs it's not too big of a concern, but there is definitely a sweetness to the final product. Might be too sweet for some people's liking.

NEIPA, attenuation, and Fermnetation temp
This yeast has been great for me. I only make 2.5 gallon batches and use one packet with no starter. It works well fermenting around 70 for the high growth and then around 75 for the diacetyl rest and maturation. I honestly get 85-90% attenuation. I use for mostly NEIPAs and have had nothing but success!

1318 is great for NE-IPA
Excellent choice for my New England style IPA.
Brewed twice with orders from Morebeer. Both 10 gallon batches attenuated as expected using 2 packets and no starters.
I am a huge advocate for preparing starters snd getting cell counts up. However in the first instance I was in a hurry and the shipments from morebeer did not let me down. For the second brew I hedged my bet by taking about 1 ml of activated yeast before pitching along with a few ounces of my wort just in case the beer didn't hit final gravity targets. I was amazed to see the target hit with just the activated psckets in oxygen aerated wort.
High quality yeast from a reliable supplier.

Starts and finishes well
Used for many different varieties. I like it best in my stouts to give them a softer touch. Not bad in an IPA either to obtain the high alpha with a smoother taste.

Great Great Yeast
This really is a true top cropping yeast. There is a huge creamy head that persists through the primary fermentation. It is slow to finish but worth the wait. I?ve used this and wyeast 1056 in my robust porter. The 1318 has a smoother and softer finish that works well with the roasted malts.
