Resulting in high-quality, rich and full-flavored beers, the Ringwood Ale strain is a particular yeast that needs to be treated well. Proper pitching rates and oxygenation can reduce chances of stress on this yeast, which has been known to produce diacetyl and ferment sluggishly when stressed. However, when given proper conditions, Ringwood Ale can produce beautifully complex beers where malt and fruity esters interlace to create beers of unparallelled quality. Beers made with Ringwood yeast often clear extremely well. A diacetyl rest is recommended when using Ringwood.
