(BY640-1099) This is a fairly clean fermenting beer yeast. It has very low ester production qualities. It does produce some noticeable maltiness and fruitiness, but nothing that is excessive. Fermenting at temperatures on the cooler side of its temperature range will enhance the characteristics. The Whitbread Ale yeast settles out fairly rapidly after fermentation.
