California Ale Yeast White Labs


Species : Ale
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 68-73
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : 73-80
Flocculation : Medium
Alcohol Tolerance : High, 10-15%

Pitching/Fermentation : Produces diacetyl and fusels if reproduction stage is over 71f or excessively underpitched. Poor attenuation if below 60f. Serial pitching will result in an extremely (88%+) attenuative yeast after 6-7 generations. Mild citrus notes develop with cooler (60-66) fermentations.

Notes : This yeast is famous for its clean flavors, balance and ability to be used in almost any style ale. It accentuates the hop flavors and is extremely versatile. Low fruitiness, mild ester production. Normally requires filtration for bright beers.

Best Styles : Most American Styles

Want to make a Yeast Starter? Home brewers are always led to believe making a yeast starter is for the advanced brewer. This could not be further from the truth. If anything beginning brewers should start with yeast starters. When you think about it they are nothing more than a small extract brew. Show Me How To Make A Yeast Starter

Versatile Yeast
This is my go-to yeast for most of my IPAs, pale ales, light ales and even my base stout recipe that I use for brews like whiskey barrel stout, chocolate covered cherry stout and habanero mocha java stout.
