PRIVATE COLLECTION *Submitted by: Bob M
I can't tell you how much I enjoy the 1217 West Coast IPA yeast in your private collection. Made an incredible Imperial Black IPA clone of Stone's 15th anniversary ale. Big tan rocky head great flavor.
Please please please consider making this a year round yeast.

FARMHOUSE ALESubmitted by: Brandon F
Just curious - how long before you release Wyeast 3726 again?
It is by far my favorite saison strain, you guys should make it year round!!!
WEST COAST IPASubmitted by: Brian H
Wyeast 1217-PC West Coast IPA is a really great yeast. This should really be added as a full-time variety. Great attenuation, good floculation and really let's the hops shine without muddling the malts.
Lots of positive reviews on Homebrewtalk forums-
Great Tech SupportSubmitted by: Darron W
“Yeast from Wyeast is very reliable: clean, pure, high viability, and consistent in its flavor profile. Besides that, however, is the customer support. If I have a low pitch rate, or a viability issue, or any sort of question or problem, the folks at Wyeast start helping to solve the problem instead of giving me the run-around or some kind of a knee-jerk defensive answer. When I need to solve a problem, I don't need a mini-lecture over the phone about whether or not I know how to do a cell count or test for viability.
The folks at Wyeast were there to help and treat me with courtesy and professional respect. Wyeast is now my only yeast supplier.

Yeast of ChoiceSubmitted by: Mark G
Wyeast has been my yeast of choice for several years. It’s the freshest yeast I can get and the smack pack always verifies its viability before I make my yeast starter. I’ve found that several of the Wyeast strains simply out perform their competition. My favorite Wyeast Strain is the Weihenstephan Weizen.

20lbs Golden Promise (Maris Otter will also do)
1lb Crystal 40L
8oz Crystal 120L
8oz Munich malt
8oz Honey malt
4oz Biscuit malt
1oz Carafa II
Mash 60min at 156°F. Mash out at 168°F for 10min.

10min: Wyeast Yeast Nutrient and Whirlfloc
Yeast: Wyeast 1728 Scottish Ale – Pitch a large (1gal) starter or better yet the slurry from a batch of Scottish 60/- or 70/-. Ferment at 65°F.
OG: 1.100 (65% efficiency)
Happy with Activators!Submitted by: Lisa P
I just wanted to let you know that we are very happy with the Activator packs from you.
My customers are happy we changed from (another supplier) to Wyeast and so are we.
These people get it right!Submitted by: Ken
2 hour lag times (sometimes less), clean crisp flavours, versatility of styles and/or strains, and the credit for my overall success as a brewer; i laud, commend, and thank you.
i appreciate your wide variety of strains, but am still amazed by some of my personal favorites; 1275, and the simple, yet truly astounding and proven 1007. If I was stranded on the proverbial desert island, with only 1 choice of yeast to brew with, it would be 1007. It would make anything a person could find fermentable, taste great! heehee!!
The fact that the dry yeast industry is still in business puzzles me, account you fine people have taken the art to ethereal heights of purity and quality. None finer.
Now, after disattaching myself from your kissing your posteriors, I implore all brewers to understand that 90+% of doing it right, is yeast viability, and these people get it right, to the Nth degree.
Peace, Love, Tranquility-
Amazing Product!Submitted by: Joel B
I want to thank you for an amazing product! I have been homebrewing for 5 years now with the last three being all grain and I have always used liquid yeast from another supplier. I have been making yeast starters for the past 41/2 years because I kept having problems with fermentation beginning. I have questioned my Homebrew store constantly about this and the way they take care of their yeast and they keep assuring me that I must be doing something wrong. I use them exclusively because they are only a 2 day ship from me and they have extensive supplies.
So, I went back and pulled my recipe binder out for the past five years and started to count up how many failures to start I had. It averages out that every sixth purchase of yeast, has failed to start in a 1.040 O.G. starter. I have had to keep a pretty extensive supply of dry yeast on hand because I never know when I am going to need it!
I just recently started using Wyeast and I am amazed! It is fool proof! When I slap the activator pack and come back in a few hours to see the pack swelled up, I know the yeast is good. I still dump it over into a starter (old habits are hard to break) because a lot of my beers are over 1.060. Since using your yeast along with my starter, fermentating has been starting, on the average, in about 31/2 hours. Again, amazing! Thanks again for an awesome product.
By the way, do you all know of anybody needing some dry yeast because I have a feeling I won't be needing it anymore. In fact, in the batch that I just brewed yesterday fermentation took off so fast and violent that it blew my airlock out.
A year later!Submitted by: Duke
Well nearly a year after last year's "Cheers to Belgian Beers" festival, I still had a smack pack of 3724 Farmhouse Ale yeast. To be quite honest, after almost a year since I bought it, I wasn't sure how viable it would be even though it's been kept at 34ºF in my garage fridge. Well, I made a starter and pitched it. Put it on the stir plate and left it for 48 hours. Last night I pitched it into a spiced Saison I decided to make with it, and SIX hours after pitching, that beer is off to the races. Can't wait to see how it turns out! Thanks Wyeast.
#3711 - Phenomenal ProductSubmitted by: Paul L
Just some feedback on the 3711 strain that you provided us , that strain produced a phenomenal product and the flavour profile was outstanding. The beer we produced is called Deckhand Belgian Saison and was very highly rated by knowledgeable beer people. Thank you!
