WLP051 - California V Ale Yeast - White Labs - 5 gallon batch size
This strain is more fruity than WLP001, and slightly more flocculent. Attenuation is lower, resulting in a fuller bodied beer. This yeast can be used to ferment Scottish ales because of its lower attenuation than its sister strain WLP001. It is a big ester producer, showcasing notes of cherry and apple which compliment pale ales, blonde and brown ales. Typically leaves some residual, lager-like sulfur compounds in finished beer. Try this yeast with Pale ales and IPA's.
To ferment this yeast properly pitch at 62-65F and let it rise to 66-68F. Ferment for 10-14 days in the primary.
Flocculation: Medium to High
Fermentation Temp: 66-70F
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.
