BRY-97
« on: November 25, 2012, 09:30:18 AM »
I see that Danstar has some new yeast out, it is called American West Coast ale yeast.  I am planning on buying a few packets, let me know if you are interested too.

I'll give it a try.  Where are you getting them, and how much are they?

That'd be their contender to the S-05 crown then... definitely worth a try, but I don't think it'll be much different.

I've got an IPA that I pitched BRY-97 in on Friday. It's actually closer to Wyeast 1272 from what I've heard rather than the Chico strain.

Ah ok, very nice then - slightly lower-attenuating option for crafting sweeter beers. I'd definitely be interested in getting in on that.

Have you heard many comments about it?

I've heard that it drops very clear and that its a slow starter and slow fermenter. I've already seen this myself—had nearly 24 hours lag time even with rehydrating and 2 minutes of pure O2 injection. It also doesn't look overly aggressive while fermenting compared to the other 5.5 gallons of the same IPA fermenting with S-04 in the carboy next to it.
