Yeast Review

White Labs WLP001 California Yeast

American ale strain which produces clean, balanced beers.

Accentuates hop flavors and character.

Works well for a wide variety of American ales, including high alcohol Double and Imperial styles.

Works great for all types of IPAs.

    Probably the best overall general ale yeast. Consistent and a quick fermenter.
