From one of the oldest stout producing breweries in the world. It produces a slight hint of diacetyl, balanced by a light fruitiness and slight dry crispness. Great for Irish Ales, Stouts, Porters, Browns, Reds and a very interesting Pale Ale. To ferment this yeast properly pitch at 63-65F and let it rise to 65-68F. Ferment for 10-14 days in the primary. This strain can be used in all ales because of its clean crisp character it produces. Irish ale can also be used to help finish a beer's stuck fermentation.

Attenuation: 69-74%.
Flocculation: Medium to High.
Optimum Fermentation Temp: 65-68.
Wyeast Equivalent: 1084 Irish

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.

Kicked off right away
Waited for almost 3 weeks before I brewed, but the yeast kicked off in 3-4 hours.

great yeast, but strange packaging
This yeast starting working within a few hours. However, it arrives in a strange package. There is an outer and an inner plastic packet. It would have been good to know this prior to opening it.

Great if you can keep it alive!
This yeast provides the perfect flavor for my red and dark ales...however, only if you can keep it active. It unfortunately accounts for all of the miss-throws that I have had.

Nice Yeast!
Made a 1 gallon batch of Irish ale to harvest enough yeast for my next 2 5 gallon batches. Came out lovely and propagated very well!

Wasted $
It took 2 weeks to ship. By the time it arrived, the ice pack was a waste and the yeast was warm and unresponsive. Even tried to do a starter, but to no avail. Had to go buy a replacement at LHBS. Moral of story...buy ingredients online, but buy yeast local.

Response from MoreFlavor
Hello Bill, we are very sorry to hear about your yeast and the trouble you had. We try to do everything we can to ship yeast, safely but the summer time is especially hard on the little ones. We also are always happy to recommend shopping at your LHBS if you're lucky enough to have one close by. Hope you were able to salvage your brewday. Cheers!

Quick starter
Used a yeast starter, and had activity within 8 hours. Finished a bit high at 1.014. Created a nice malty Irish red ale.
