Like most English strains, this one produces malty beers. Excellent for all English styles including bitter, pale ale, porter, and brown ale.
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 65-70°F
Alcohol Tolerance: Medium (5-10%)
Yeast Starter Required
These are live cultures. Although the White Labs tube says you can pitch this directly into your wort without a starter, this is not a good ideal for yeast that has shipped through the mail (unless you pay for ice packs and two day air or Priority Mail shipping). We sell these live cultures with the understanding that it is your responsibility to proof the culture on arrival by making a yeast starter. If you do not have yeast starter equipment, see this link for details on ours. Thank you and enjoy!
