Ideal Fermentation Temperature Range: 66-71°F

  • WLP003 — German Ale Yeast II (available May/June 2001). Good for Kölsch, Alt, and German style Pale Ales. Strong sulfur component will reduce with aging. Clean, but with more ester production than WLP029. Attenuation: 73-80% Flocculation: Medium. Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 65-70°F.
  • WLP026 — Premium Bitter Ale Yeast (Available May/June 2001). From Staffordshire, England. Fermentation gives a mild, but complex, estery character. Ferments strong and dry.
