Wyeast's American Ale yeast is the definitive American ale strain. A clean, neutral profile with low ester production makes this the ideal choice for a wide range of beers, American or otherwise. This strain is used popularly in many breweries and homes alike as a house strain. While it is often used in American Pale Ales and IPAs, its versatility means it can produce many other styles with ease. Medium-to-low flocculation means that yeast will stay in suspension longer than more flocculant British strains, but will produce clean and crisp beers of exceptional quality.
