Wyeast Liquid Beer Yeast: American Ale II / 1272

Item Number: BY640-1272

Availability: In stock

Price: $7.95
(BY640-1272) Has a lot of the characteristics that you would be looking for when producing American-style micro beers. American Ale II is a happy, versatile strain of liquid beer yeast, so much so, that it makes a good choice as a "House" for many microbreweries. It has a gentle, crisp profile with a dash of nuttiness and a subtle, tart finish. If looking for more fruitiness, increase the fermentation temperature to the higher end of the temperature range. For more citrus flavors, ferment the homebrew at the cooler end of the temperature range. American Ale II clears out rapidly and thoroughly making a brilliantly clear beer.

  • Flocculation: low
  • Attenuation: 73-77%
  • Temperature Range: 55-68° F (13-20° C)
  • Alcohol Tolerance: approximately 11% ABV
