All American Indeed

Review by tim.murrell on 7/25/2008

Pros: Brewed a classic American pale with the XL 1272 and was impressed by its even character and rigorous action.

Cons: A bit on the cloudy side but I could have gone for another rack.

A New Favorite!

Review by michael m. on 2/8/2010

Pros: Rocket fast-Ready to pitch in 4 hours. Active frementation was evedent within 6 hours. More charater the 1056. Used in a ryePA, Subtle fruit (pineapple) in the nose, but malt flavoer were highlighted. Excellent stuff!

Cons: Popping the bubble is a little challenging.

Great Yeast!

Review by Randy D. on 2/19/2010

Pros: I used this yeast when it first hit the market and have loved it! I use it in my high alcohol fruit beers and it ferments extremely well even to the 11% and higher range. It leaves a nice clean taste…no heave yeast taste at all. Be ready to brew right away as this yeast puffs fast without fail. It has become my favorite yeast overall.

Cons: None

Watching the fermentation now

Review by Andrew G. on 6/7/2010

Pros: It took a little longer to expand the pouch than others mentioned, but was fine after 8 hours. Some things came up and I had to wait nearly 3 days after breaking the inner pouch. It took about 16 hours to start chewing on a 1.086 gravity wort, but when it did it produced about a gallon of foam within an hour and is currently hammering the air lock about once per second.

Cons: None so far, and I don't imagine it will have trouble with this batch (8%abv tops)

Going well so far

Review by David on 9/17/2011

I ordered on Saturday from CA and received these yesterday (Friday) in AL. I left them out to get acclimated to room temp then smacked 'em around 5:pm. By 9:pm they were tight and ready to pitch. I prepared my wort this morning; a full 5 gallon boil from the Imperial IPA kit. After taking 15 minutes to cool with an immersion coil, I pitched 3 activators at 76 degrees and 1.095 (corrected), after aerating, and topped up to 5.5 gallons. I used 3 due to the high OG. Two hours later, I already have activity at the air lock. These are performing VERY well so far. Thanks William's. After 5 years with you, I wouldn't go anywhere else.
