Price: $7.95
(BY640-1056) This is Wyeast's most popular beer yeast. American Ale is extremely flexible and can be used in many, many different beer styles. It excells when used with beer recipes that require the malt and hops to be the predominant characteristic of the beer. This beer yeast produces very little fruitness or esters on its own. However, some citrus notes can be produced by fermenting on the cooler end of its temperature range.

  • Flocculation: Medium-Low
  • Attenuation: 73-77%
  • Temperature Range: 60-72F, 15-22C
  • Alcohol Tolerance: approximately 11% ABV

About Wyeast Beer Yeast:

By smacking and breaking open the nutrient pack within the pouch you are able to pre-start your beer yeast before adding it to your wort.
