Go to yeast for British Ales
This is my go to yeast for English Bitters, Special and ESB. I pitch 1 package for a 5 gln brew. I additionally add 2.4 grams of Wyeast nutrient 10 minutes before flameout on the boil.
Pitch the yeast at 69 - 70F. Vigorous fermentation the next day. Fermentation is complete in roughly 4 days.

NEIPA Madness
Used for making a New England IPA. Developed desirable "juicy" flavor in abundance. I highly recommend this yeast for that style.

Smooth and clean
Smooth stone fruit and papaya flavor that meshes really well with citrus neipas. My favorite yeast thus far.

Great yeast
A true top fermenting yeast strain. This yeast makes a thick, long lasting krausen. I recently made an NEIPA with excellent results.

London ale III in cider
Followed the directions on the package and the ferment started 18 hrs after pitching in a 5 gallon batch of hard cider. Still waiting for it to finish and can't wait to try this one...

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.
