This yeast is all about the malt! It is the choice for fermenting Scottish-style ales that are low in fruity esters and really big on malt flavor. Produces a slight smokiness. It's also good in rich, dark ales, like Oatmeal Stout. We have also had some customers make some good Barleywines with this strain. Does not ferment well under 62F.

Attenuation: 70-75%
Flocculation: Medium
Fermentation Temp: 65-70
Wyeast Equivalent: 1728 Scottish

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

I just purchased the scotch ale kit and a pack of wlp028 yeast should I use more yeast? Some have mentioned slow yeast activity and with the high OG, just trying to head off any issues. New to this and excited for this awesome ale....

BEST ANSWER: Generally, when the beer is expected to be at or over 6% ABV, it's best to use at least 2 packets of yeast or make a yeast starter.

Nice flavor
I've used this White Labs Edinburgh yeast several times and am always happy with the results. I brew mostly very low gravity beer and I'm always happy with the yeasts' performance.

Makes a great Scotch Ale
This strain makes a great Scotch Ale. I would recommend White Labs over others. Looking forward to the new packaging from them. Also shipped with ice pack so it arrived fresh and ready to go.

Exceptional Quality
White Labs is the best. Yeast arrived fresh and is already rocking it in the fermentor.

Mellow and easy
This is a robust and mellow yeast that withstands abuse but really pays off with a mild smooth flavor.

like the flavor
I used this yeast in a RIS and turned out great. I was looking for the yeast to impart some good esters, and this one delivered.

Excellent Yeast
White Labs has never let me down. Each and every one of their yeasts (and I have tried most by now) has performed exceptionally well and to their specifications.

Great flavor!
Highly recommended in red ale. Much better flavor than the dry equivalent.
