American Ale Yeast Blend White Labs
Species : Ale
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 68-72
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : 72-80
Flocculation : Medium
Alcohol Tolerance : Medium-High 8-12%
Pitching/Fermentation : This blend tastes more lager like than White Labs 001. Hop flavors and bitterness are accentuated, but not to the extreme of California. Slight sulfur will be produced during fermentation.
Notes : The most popular yeast strain is White Labs 001, California Ale Yeast. This blend celebrates the strengths of California- clean, neutral fermentation, versatile usage, and adds two other strains that belong to the same 'clean/neutral' flavor category. The additional strains create complexity to the finished beer.
Best Styles : American Ales
