Haven't used wyeast in years after the last time beating the shit out of it on the kitchen counter, any tips or experiences using this particular strain.

At least now I'm not the only one that can't seem to break the damn pack inside easily. Such a pita!

I was like a half shot duck flapping around the kitchen last time
Yep Nigel had it shipped from U.K., from Brewuk very well packed and came with cool pack

Bought some 1318 from BrewUK in December too, a nice fresh smack pack. Have it fermenting a NEIPA for the past week at 18 C. This strain supposedly allows for 'hop biotransformation' during active fermentation, so I put a 100g dry hop charge in at 2 days. I'll let you know what it's like once kegged and ready in 2 weeks.

Edited the post as you replied! Just to include that I added a 100g dry hop charge at day 2 to test out this hop biotransformation malarky.

Very good article by Scott Janish here. Biotransformation heading about 1/4 the way down.

No probs. His blog has to be the best source of info on hoppy styles. I'd never be able to understand the sources he pulls from, but he breaks it down brilliantly.

I was reading that today too. The stuff about extracting the oils within a day really has me thinking about dry hop times.
