A favorite strain among homebrewers for classic English beers. Produces distinctly malty beers.
Wyeast (London ESB Ale(TM)) - 1968 is a very good cask conditioned ale strain with a great flavor profile. Attenuation levels are less than most other yeast strains giving you a slightly sweeter finish. Ales produced with this strain tend to be fruity, increasingly so with higher fermentation temperatures of 70-74F (21-23C). Gives pleasing results after a diacetyl rest. Bright beers are easily achieved without filtration.
Flocculation: Very High
Temperature Range: 64-72F, 18-22C
Alcohol Tolerance: 9% ABV
For best results we always recommend ordering an ice pack with your liquid yeast.
