WLP005 - British Ale Yeast - White Labs - 5 gallon batch size
Like most English strains, this yeast produces malty beers. We get a velvety mouth feel on the palate and a hint of cherries and rose petals in the aroma. With the great attenuation this strain provides you can ferment almost any ale. We've used this in a strong scotch and the outcome was phenomenal. To ferment this yeast properly pitch at 64-66F and let it rise to 66-68F. Ferment for 10-14 days in the primary. Excellent for all English style ales including bitter, pale ale, porter, and brown ale. It is a great choice for any beers using traditional English malts like Marris Otter, Golden Promise or floor malted barley. This strain will push bready, grainy malt flavors while being a mild ester producer.
Optimum Fermentation Temp: 65-70 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.
