White Labs is a company which makes and sells yeast for homebrewers as well as breweries. They have dozens of yeast strains available:


Contents

ALE YEAST

WLP001 California Ale Yeast

This yeast is famous for its clean flavors, balance and ability to be used in almost any style ale. It accentuates the hop flavors and is extremely versatile. The source for the yeast is believed to be Sierra Nevada, which in itself may have originally come from Ballantine. Attenuation: 73-80% Flocculation: Medium Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 68-73°F Alcohol Tolerance: High

WLP002 English Ale Yeast

A classic ESB strain from one of England's largest independent breweries. This yeast is best suited for English style ales including milds, bitters, porters, and English style stouts. This yeast will leave a beer very clear, and will leave some residual sweetness. The source for the yeast is believed to be Fullers. Attenuation: 63-70% Flocculation: Very High Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 65-68°F Alcohol Tolerance: Medium

WLP003 German Ale II Yeast

Good for Kölsch, Alt, and German style Pale Ales. Strong sulfur component will reduce with aging. Clean, but with more ester production than WLP029. Attenuation: 73-80% Flocculation: Medium Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 65-70°F Does not ferment well less than 62°F Alcohol Tolerance: Medium


WLP004 Irish Ale Yeast

This is the yeast from one of the oldest stout producing breweries in the world. It produces a slight hint of diacetyl, balanced by a light fruitiness and slight dry crispness. Great for Irish ales, stouts, porters, browns, reds and a very interesting pale ale. The source for the yeast is believed to be Guinness. Attenuation: 69-74% Flocculation: Medium to High Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 65-68°F Alcohol Tolerance: Medium-High

WLP005 British Ale Yeast

This yeast is a little more attenuative than WLP002. Like most English strains, this yeast produces malty beers. Excellent for all English style ales including bitter, pale ale, porter, and brown ale. The source for the yeast is believed to be Ringwood. Attenuation: 67-74% Flocculation: High Optimum fermentation temperature: 65-70°F Alcohol Tolerance: Medium
