London Ale yeast from White Labs is a great all-around choice for several different British ales! While less flocculant than some of White Labs' British strains, it nevertheless leaves a complexity that has been described by brewers and White Labs alike as "oakey." This comes from some unique esters produced by the yeast during fermentation. London Ale has garnered quite a few fans by quickly producing high-quality British ales that have a good complexity that allows hops to shine through. Some brewers have reported hints of smoke coming through with the oak character, which would make it ideal for an old ale or barrel aged porter or stout. However, it has also found use in many classic British styles, such as bitters, IPAs, ESBs, and pale ales.

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!
