From Danstar comes a dry west-coast style IPA yeast! BRY-97 was selected from the Seibel Institute Culture Collection, a collection of yeasts kept by America's oldest brewing school.This yeast can be a vigorous fermenter with a medium to high rate of flocculation. Yeast flavor is generally neutral, producing some fruity esters. Because of high flocculation, it can soften hop character in the finished beer. While this yeast can be slow at taking off in the first generation, those that harvest or repitch yeast can expect a vigorous and quick start on subsequent generations. A great yeast for not only pale ales and IPAs, but also a range of ales from blondes and cream ales to ambers, browns and porters.
