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.
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.
