White Lab's "Brewer Patriot" strain can be used to reproduce many of the American versions of classic beer styles. Similar neutral character of WLP001, but less attenuation, less accentuation of hop bitterness, slightly less flocculation, and a little tartness. Very clean and low esters. Great yeast for golden, blonde, honey, pales and German alt style ales.
Flocculation: Medium to Low
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 68-73°F
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!
