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.

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.

Why the pouch??? Bring the vile back!!!
Note this is not a review for or against morebeer.com but rather against the white labs PurePitch. I have been using whitelabs yeast for years and I've always been happy with their products. This new pouch is not an improvement. The original design of yeast in a vile worked just fine. In my opinion, the exterior of the pouch is loaded with bacteria (people handling the product before usage). When cut the pouch and squeeze the yeast out, the yeast touches the exterior of the bag, thus coming into contact with the bacteria. I'm no microbiologist but it seems that the wort may be compromised. What was the drive to change their packaging?

Very easy to pitch, I do believe that it worked well as the F.G. was very acceptable. and this style I used fit the beer style as well.
Sad to say but due to our winter weather the yeast sat in my fridge for about 4.5 months however a break in the weather on a weekend allowed me to brew my pliney the elder, which I purchased from more beer, this yeast was also recommended with the kit.
I pitched it directly into the wort instead of using a starter like I usually do. Fermentation begin with in 24 hours.
Everything went well in the primary and secondary fermentations I have since kegged the beer and I'm enjoying it. tastes like the original from California.
I would definitely use this yeast again with this beer kit
The beer I made using this yeast. 
Turned out great!
