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.

Commonly referred to as having a "cottage cheese" appearance when shaken up.

Attenuation: 63-70%
Flocculation: Very High.
Optimum Fermentation Temp: 65-68.
Wyeast Equivalent: 1968 Special London

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

Please Note: When choosing an ice pack option beware that the liquid yeast will not arrive cold even when shipped together. Ice packs and insulated mailing options are designed to keep the yeast colder for longer during shipment, but they will not ensure that your yeast arrives cold. We will not replace liquid yeast that arrives warm. During warmer months we strongly recommend you choose dry yeast.

Quick start!
Fast start, pitched one pack in high gravity RIS and was bubbly at 12 hrs and raging at 24. Beer primary finished in 12 days and clear in 14. Great new formulation of the yeast with the new culture and packaging. Will use again

A Good Workhorse
Fantastic yeast. Great for Pale Ales and IPAs. Pairs extremely well with Munich 10, Vienna, Maris Otter, or even just 2 row.

Good yeast
This yeast was ordered during a colder month and I didn't request an ice pack, so I was nervous when the order took longer than expected, but it showed up to my home still cold and I immediately tossed it in the fridge until a few hours before pitch. It worked very well on my black IPA. I would order again.

Great strain. Will absolutely use again in the Future.
I used this yeast to make a starter for my oatmeal stout. Took off like a champ. I was very pleased with the results.
