This is a blend of ale and lager yeast strains.  The strains work together to create a clean, crisp, light American lager style ale. A pleasing estery aroma may be perceived from the ale yeast contribution. Hop flavors and bitterness are slightly subdued. Slight sulfur will be produced during fermentation, from the lager yeast. 
Attenuation: 75-80%
Flocculation: Medium
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 65-70°F
Alcohol Tolerance: Medium High

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!

Brewery: OrangeVale Brewing Co.
Comments: I've been using this yeast since early 2009 & have been VERY happy with it. I have a summer party every year & typically brew ~six different styles. For two years in a row the Cream Ale has been the hit of the party! I brewed "two kegs" this year & once again these were the first to go. My drinking friends & I know a winner when we drink it!

" ... this is THE yeast"

Beers brewed: Cream Ale
Comments: I love this yeast. Fermented cream ale at 65 degrees then cold storage for a few weeks at 38 degrees. If you want a lager-like beer but can only work at ale temps, this is THE yeast.

Beers brewed: Belgian Wit
Comments: I used this yeast to brew a Belgian on the recommendation of my local homebrew supply owner. It took 11 days to complete fermentation but it may be because of the honey used in the brew. It produced sulphur that did not dissipate over a week of aging, but aside from that the beer is marvelous.

Comments: I first tried this yeast to see how what the results would be in making a cream ale. I've fallen in love!! The yeast produces a light clean tasting ale that’s refreshingly tasty. I’ve now made this part of my yeast inventory.
