San Diego Super yeast from White Labs is another very versatile strain. it is often compared to their California Ale strain of yeast, with higher alcohol tolerance, higher attenuation, higher flocculation and quicker fermentation. Used in the production of many American style beers, it finds a special place in the production of IPAs, imperial and double IPAs, and barleywines. That is not to say that it cannot be used on lower gravity beers; indeed, it can create dry, easy-drinking beers from lower gravity worts which come out crisp and delicious. Very clean and neutral, it leaves a good balance between malt and hops. For this reason, it is a favorite of brewers wishing to make a range of well-balanced beers.
