Platinum Strains

FOR HOMEBREW SHOPS -- Now is the time to experiment for homebrewers. During the months of January and February, White Labs is offering two exciting yeast strains to homebrewers as part of its popular Platinum Series specials:

Belgian Golden Ale (WLP570) – From East Flanders, this versatile yeast can produce light Belgian ales to high gravity Belgian beers (12 percent ABV). Its flavor is dominated by a combination of fruitiness and phenolic characteristics. Some sulfur is produced during fermentation, which will dissipate following the end of fermentation. Attenuation: 75-80 percent. Flocculation: low.

Klassic Ale (WLP033) – This is a traditional English style, single strain yeast. It produces signature ester character, and does not mask hop character. It leaves your ale with a slightly sweet malt character. Best for bitters, milds, porters, and stouts. Also good for Scottish-style ales. Attenuation: 66-74 percent. Flocculation: medium.

For those unfamiliar with the program, the Platinum Series, introduced in 2000, provides homebrew shops with two different strains every other month. These strains are from White Labs’ private collection and are generally only available to professional brewers. But this program offers homebrewers a chance to use interesting and sometimes exotic strains.

Cinco de Mayo

FOR BREWERIES -- Get ready for Cinco de Mayo! Order the Mexican Lager yeast strain (WLP940) and receive 15 percent off 15 bbl or more, 10 percent off 10 bbl, 7 percent off 7 bbl.

This offer is valid during the month of March.

White Labs 'Safety Net'

FOR BREWERIES -- To ensure the best tasting beer, you need to make sure your yeast is in top form. Many brewers know that the best way to ensure yeast quality is to house it at White Labs, the leaders in quality control.

There is no better time than now to try for yourself. During January, as part of the company’s program "Don’t go another year without a safety net,’’ White Labs will analyze and house your private strain for one year for $65.
