Our #1 Best-Selling Yeast! Famous for clean flavors, balance, and the ability to be used in almost any style Ale. It ferments dry and has a very nice, soft malt flavor. We would say that it puts the flavor emphasis on the malt and hops. Definitely one of our top favorites, and MoreBeer!'s best selling yeast! To ferment this yeast properly pitch at 62-65F and let it rise to 66-68F. Ferment for 10-14 days in the primary. This strain can be used in all ales because of its clean crisp character it produces. Cal ale can also be used to help finish a beer's stuck fermentation.

Attenuation: 73-80%
Flocculation: Medium.
Optimum Fermentation Temp: 68-72.
Wyeast Equivalent: 1056 American

For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast.

Great yeast and great packaging.
Fantastic yeast! I didn't even use a starter and the fermentation hit the ground running. I almost had a blow out. Still waiting for the final product but I'm happy so far.

Will use again
Tried this on the Hop Blond kit. Quick fermentation at 65F. Nice attenuation and cleared up nicely with cold crash after fermentation. Will use again.
I did pitch 2 in a 5 gallon batch

Made an awesome Holiday Ale. Great fermentation action without blowing its top. Carbonation was perfect with small creamy bubbles and generous head.
