A neutral yeast which produces a clean flavored ale. Extremely popular and the yeast to use if you want the classic west coast IPA clean flavor (this strain is used in at least half the commercial IPA's brewed in California). Medium flocculation, attenuation: 73-77%. Ideal temperature range: 60-72°F.
NOTE: This yeast has a tendency to swell at room temperature, which means the pack you get by mail order will already be partially swollen. This makes it harder to determine if the yeast is still viable. We recommend you order American Ale 11 instead (search for our item Y70) of this yeast if you are planning on brewing without making a starter. We cannot honor warranty claims for packs that arrive swollen due to this property. Making a yeast starter is always a great idea!
White Labs equivalent is their U01 American Ale.
