This genuinely classic ale strain originated from one of England's largest breweries. It has a rich, malty flavor with lots of good fruity esters. It is used as the yeast-strain-of-choice in many microbreweries, and is definitely one of our favorites. Use it in any beer in which you want a distinct malt flavor to come through. The high flocculation results in naturally clear beers. Our #2 best selling yeast. To ferment this yeast properly pitch at 65-66F and let it rise to 66-68F. Ferment for 10-14 days in the primary.
