Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
This strain is ideally suited to the production of West Coast-style American craft beers, especially pale, IPA, red, and specialties. Thorough attenuation, temperature tolerance, and good flocculation make this an easy strain to work with. Flavor is balanced neutral with mild ester formation at warmer temperatures, allowing hops, character malts, and flavorings to show through.
Good for styles:
American Pale Ale, American Brown Ale, American IPA, Double IPA, Speciality IPA: Red IPA, Scottish Light, Scottish Heavy, Wee Heavy.
