  • Description
  • Q and A

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.

From a customer service stand point GF is second to none! Super fast shipping, packed well, ice pack for the yeast. Also always willing to answer brew questions quickly even if it has nothing to do with a purchase. As for the beer, I had a bad batch. I'm sure it's something I did as I'm still working on my new all grain set up. I'll have to give the Brown another try sometime.

When I was getting ready to brew I pulled out the yeast packet and noticed the smack pack had already been burst. The pack had sat undisturbed in the fridge for a few weeks so I didn't know what to expect. I decided to see if it would still work and I am happy to say that my Red Ale is fermenting nicely.
