(1 review) Write a Review
A very good cask conditioned ale strain, this extremely flocculent yeast produces distinctly malty beers. 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

Flocculation: High
Attenuation: 67-71
Temperature Range: 64-72F

    If I had just one yeast,this is the one. Have used in pale to stout.Has a clabbered look,easy to tell in the starter that cell count is up!
