Whitbread is a strain of yeast that can produce a range of English and British style beers. More robust than Wyeast's 1098 British Ale, beers made with Whitbread often have a true English character, with a mild fruitiness that accentuates malt character. While it can be a temperamental yeast that lags if not treated properly, its higher flocculation levels means it is capable of producing brilliantly clear and delicious beers.
