An American ale strain that isn't your typical Chico yeast, White Labs' California Ale V yeast is a bit different than your go-to American ale strain. It ferments slightly fruitier than 001 or Wyeast 1056, while being more flocculant, leaving beers clearer in the end. In terms of fruity ester character, it tends to be right between your cleaner American strains and your more fruity English ale yeasts. Attenuation is a bit lower than other traditional American strains, which means beers come out slightly sweeter and maltier. Many brewers like to use this strain to make American styles when they desire a different, more malty and sweet character that traditional American ales strains produce.
- A fruitier and slightly sweeteer strain of American ale yeast.
- Produces a more malty ale with a bit more fruitiness than standard American ale yeast.
- Used to ferment a wide range of American ales, such as pale ales, IPAs, ambers, wheats, browns, American porters, and American stouts.
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!
