London ESB Ale Wyeast
Species : Ale
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 64-72
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : 67-71
Flocculation : Very High
Alcohol Tolerance : 9%
Pitching/Fermentation : Attenuation levels are typically less than most other yeast strains which results in a slightly sweeter finish. Ales produced with this strain tend to be fruity, increasingly so with higher fermentation temperatures of 70-74°F (21-23° C). A thorough diacetyl rest is recommended after fermentation is complete. Bright beers are easily achieved within days without any filtration.
Notes : A very good cask conditioned ale strain, this extremely flocculant yeast produces distinctly malty beers.
Best Styles : English Barleywine, English IPA, Extra Special/Strong Bitter (English Pale Ale), Fruit Beer, Mild, Old Ale, Southern English Brown, Special/Best/Premium Bitter, Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer, Standard/Ordinary Bitter, Wood-Aged Beer

When you think about it they are nothing more than a small extract brew. Show Me How To Make A Yeast Starter
