Like most English strains, this yeast produces malty beers. We get a velvety mouth feel on the palate and a hint of cherries and rose petals in the aroma. With the great attenuation this strain provides you can ferment almost any ale. We've used this in a strong scotch and the outcome was phenomenal. To ferment this yeast properly pitch at 64-66F and let it rise to 66-68F. Ferment for 10-14 days in the primary. Excellent for all English style ales including bitter, pale ale, porter, and brown ale.

Attenuation: 67-74%
Flocculation: High
Optimum Fermentation Temp: 65-70.
Wyeast Equivalent: 1098 British

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

I've never used it and wanted to try it. Also it was cheaper than the other liquid yeast I was considering trying

Great yeast
I have used this yeast on my batches and will continue to use this in other batches. I like to reuse this yeast and experiment with it since it gives great flavors.

Good to stay true to style for English styles.
Good yeast, clears out and flocs really solid. Racking off the yeast cake I could practically let the syphon sit on the cake and it still didn't suck much yeast up. Great for staying true to English styles

Reliable All Around Yeast
This is by far my favorite strain to brew with. It makes excellent pale ales with a just the right amount of body and really lets the hop flavor come through. In my opinion it has more flavor than the american ale strain for most beer styles and does not finish as dry. The yeast starts strong and settles out well and it makes a clear beer. I also use this strain for brewing my fruit beers with reliable results. Try this with your next fruit ale. Since I work with yeast in my day job, I have been propagating this strain for quite some time and it has a stable profile over time. For a 5 gallon batch I make a 1 liter starter a day or two before brewing.

Great yeast- very versatile
This yeast has been great in a few batches- ferment it cool (66-68) for clean malt flavor, or a bit warmer (70-72) for some nicely subtle fruit notes.

Good substitute for alot of beers
I accidentally purchased british ale yeast instead of irish ale yeast to use in an oatmeal stout. It came out awesome. Might make that mistake again.
