    Has anyone used Wyeast 1450? I am thinking of using it on a Christmas ale (oak chips ,boubon etc.) It seems like it would be a good fit.
    Seems some people have had problems with it, just looking for advise.

    I've used 1450 a few times with no issues. No discernible off flavors that come to mind. I fermented at ~65 IIRC

    Just pitched this yesterday. Use it for pumpkin beer. Have used it another time for something, can't remember. No issues. I bumped my mash temp this year, as last years batch attenuated very low, finishing something like 1006. Ambient temp 61-62.

    This is my favorite yeast! I have only made IPA's and 1 Brown ale with it, it adds a lot of body to finished beers wich I love ! :) make a good starter and let it work, I usually ferment at 16c-19c with it.
