WLP099 - Super High Gravity Ale Yeast - White Labs - 5 gallon batch size
This yeast reportedly can ferment up to 25% alcohol. To achieve >25% ABV, sugar needs to be fed over the course of the fermentation. Also note that with any beer with a starting gravity over 1.060 you should consider using nutrients. Produces ester character that increases with increasing gravity. Malt character dominates at lower gravities. It can sometimes produce a Belgian character and sometimes not. We would not recommend it for creating classic true-to-style variations of Barleywines, Imperial Stouts, Strong Ales or any other high-gravity style where Belgian flavors would not be appropriate. This yeast might be a great fit for really big Dunkelweizens.
Fermentation Temperature: 65-69F
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.
