British strains are known for their characteristic flocculation, fruity esters, and slight butterscotch notes that can occur during fermentation. Wyeast's British Ale yeast is a wonderful British strain whose fermentation can include all these, yet tends to be more neutral than other British or English yeasts. This allows hops and malt to take center stage above yeast character. Producing balanced beers with a clean finish, this strain's medium flocculation properties means it will leave a clear beer with proper conditioning.
Warm Weather Shipping Notice
During the hot summer months we include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders, but cannot guarantee that the ice packs will stay cold during transit, and thus the yeast can potentially be exposed to hot temperatures. We highly recommend ordering dry yeast during the summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate.
