Now available in PurePitch Packaging! White Labs' California Ale yeast is their version of the most popular American Ale strain in use in the home breweries of America today, and is a popular choice for almost any beer your brewing imagination can come up with. Mostly used in the production of American pale ales and IPAs, this strain can also be used in almost any style, from blonde and cream ales to porters and stouts, and is a good, neutral strain to use when making fruit beers as well. A clean profile and quick, complete fermentations are both characteristics that make this yeast stand out as a star in the brewing world. Try this yeast when making beers where a cleanliness that allows both hops and malt to come out is desired.
ICE PACK INCLUDED
We include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders (if required), 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 hot summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate. Many times during the winter an ice pack is not needed so we make the determination based on current temperatures and the destination!
