This beer is inspired by typical amber ales found around the Seattle area. Many of this region's amber ales are a little sweeter (but balanced), have a big hop aroma and use English yeast strains. The WLP037 creates a beer of pristine clarity while providing some gentle fruit notes of pear and toast. Since this is a platinum strain, you may wish to substitute Wyeast 1332 Northwest ale yeast or safale 04.

Bob's is all wyeast and I think the cellar is too. I buy all my grain from Bob, as well as other miscellaneous things, but if I need yeast I go to Mountain in Kirkland. They really do have an awesome selection of yeast – pretty much the entire catalogue of Wyeast and WL. Of course they won't have WLP037 until fall though.
