WLP004 - Irish Ale Yeast - White Labs - 5 gallon batch size
This yeast is from one of the oldest stout producing breweries in the world. It yields a slight hint of diacetyl, balanced by a light fruitiness and clean dry crispness. Medium attenuation helps with a dry finish that promotes roasty notes. It’s great for many beer styles but really shines in malty British styles such as Irish ales, stouts, porters, red ales and brown ales. Esters help round out the overall flavor making a soft drinkable stout. Irish Ale Yeast also can be used to help finish a beer's stuck fermentation.
To properly ferment this yeast, pitch at 63-65F and let it rise to 65-68F. Ferment for 10-14 days in the primary.
Flocculation: Medium to High.
Optimum Fermentation Temp: 65-68 F.
For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast, particularly during warmer months and for orders shipped to warm climates.
