Love this yeast!
I tried White Labs Cream Ale for the first time a couple months back and was very impressed with it's clean fermentation. I didn't brew a traditional cream, but rather a slightly hoppy pale ale and fermented it at 62F. Super crisp and clean with great malt character and the hops came through beautifully. I just purchased a second pouch...mine came in the old school vial which I thought was cool. Whirlfloc stack neatly inside of them :) Don't wait..try this yeast!!

Clean fermenting Yeast!
This is my "go to" yeast. I've used it for several different styles from Pale Ales, Red Ales and of course Cream Ale. This strain ferments strong and settles out very well for a clear beer (use Whirlifloc and cold crash). I ferment in lower temperature range initially then move to 68 - 70?_ and always end up with a FG around 1.009.

Lager-like results @ ale temps
I tried this with an improvised Cream Ale recipe. Using a starter I had strong fermentation @ 66F for 1.5days then raised 5F for another week resulting in 75% attenuation.

By far the most lager-like ale I've brewed, even more so than Kolsch. A slight touch of sulfur was noticeable is not out of character for an American lager. Suffice it to say it was a real crowd-pleaser and I'll be using it again soon!
