Thoughts on BRY-97

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of using it instead of US-05 in a pale ale I'll be brewing in a few weeks.  Anyone brew with it?  Thoughts?  Likes/dislikes?  

I did a search for it on here and most of the mentions of it are from seven-eight years ago.

I like it because it’s not US-05.🙂With a west coast Amber ale currently fermenting with BRY, I’m expecting a neutral flavor profile that lets the malt character dominate.

I see I was called for an opinion on BRY-97. I used it in Cream Ale, Wit and IPA

Cream ale was initially butterscotch taste, but cleaned up then just corn - so meh.

Wit was dryish and OK

I?PA was very nice very fruity - I used some NZ hops.  (The ? denotes fairly low IBUs, I used 3 oz. hops in 2 gal for late boil, flameout and dry hop adds.)

 

So I would say Go for it. I think it gets good reviews in Biotransformation so may accentuate fruity hops flavors.

Bry 97 is my go to ipa killa yeast! Bad thing is only local brew shop discontinued it a year ago. If I have a stuck fermentation and outta Safale 05, I use this and has never failed! I’ll sometimes even mix with liquid yeast and never had any issues. It’s like workhorse for ipa.
