Has anyone used either Lalbrew® Verdant IPA Yeast or Lallemand Lalbrew® New England Ale?  I added them to an order that should be here today.  Figure I may give one of them a go with my standard house APA next week.

I have not but I'm always on the lookout for new dry yeast options. It's a pretty good time and money saver. I usually try to do two repitches from the first batch. One of them is immediately after batch 1 so no starter needed on that one. The next batch I make a starter since it's older.

Where did you buy from? Any Intel you've gathered so far?

I got them at Williams Brewing but they are most places now.  I should have included descriptions.  Verdant is what I will test out first

 

LalBrew® Verdant IPA was specially selected in collaboration with Verdant Brewing Co. (UK) for its ability to produce a variety of hop-forward and malty beers. Prominent notes of apricot and undertones of tropical fruit and citrus merge seamlessly with hop aromas. With medium-high attenuation, LalBrew® Verdant IPA leaves a soft and balanced malt profile with slightly more body than a typical American IPA yeast strain. This highly versatile strain is well suited for a variety of beer styles including NEIPA, English IPA, American Pale, English Bitter, Sweet Stout and Sours.

 

alBrew New England is an ale strain selected specifically for its ability to produce a unique fruit forward ester profile desired in East Coast styles of beer. A typical fermentation with LalBrew New England will produce tropical and fruity esters, notably stone fruits like peach. Through expression of a β-glucosidase enzyme, LalBrew New England can promote hop biotransformation and accentuate hop flavor and aroma. LalBrew New England exhibits medium to high attenuation with medium flocculation, making it a perfect choice for East Coast style ales.

One of my favorite yeast is Wyeast 1318, which is popular for making NEIPA.

 

The descriptions from Lallemand have some things in common with 1318. They both fail to mention how 1318 is  "top cropper." 1318 puts a foaming layer of yeast on top. You can harvest yeast with a ladle.

 

These are high on my radar for yeast to use.

I have a pack of 1318 to go. Maybe if I get my sh!t together I can do the same recipe with both yeasts to compare.

I shouldn't be buying yeast just yet though.  I've got some dry stuff in the fridge I should use first :)

I have been trying to think of how I can do a split batch seeing my normal fermenters really will not work for this and I am thinking about trying the Gusso route and use kegs. I wonder how floating diptubes will work for this. I would ferment and dryhop in one keg then move to a serving keg.

I've only used floating diptubes while fermenting in the keg. Works great.

hmmm - I'm kind of tempted to try this in my fermentor.  right now my dip tube is cut a little short so obviously this isn't exactly a highly controlled pick up point.  it's generally close enough but a floating dip tube could theoretically be better.

I've poured 185 degree wort into a keg with a floating diptube and chilled in the pool. No problem!

That sounds simple and tasty. Depending on how your's turns out, I have all the ingredients to do the same.

That was my thought as well.  From what I am reading this yeast is a fast working too.
