London Ale III is Wyeast's strain cultivated from the Boddington's brewery, long famous for their creamy pub ale. This yeast can be used to make similar ales, fruity and rich with a flavor profile allowing malt and hops to dominate in harmony. It can leave a slight sweetness and may not be quite as highly attenuative than other strain that leave beers drier. This makes London Ale III perfect for sweeter, more malt forward styles as well as rich, hoppy pales where malt sweetness is desired to balance out hop character. It is known to be a vigorous fermenter which leaves a thick krausen behind due to high flocculation. Cold-conditioning beers fermented with this strain will cause the highly flocculant yeast to drop out, leaving behind incredibly clear, delicious beers.
