BRY-97 American West Coast Yeast is a top fermenting Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast stand. This yeast will quick start and go through a vigorous fermentation, which can be completed in 4 days above 17 °C. The aroma is slightly estery, almost neutral and does not display malodours when properly handled. Best when used at traditional ale temperatures after re-hydration in the recommended manner. Due to the slightly higher flocculation tendencies, it does slightly reduce bittering levels in the finished beer.
It was selected from the Siebel Institute Culture Collection and is used by a number of commercial breweries to produce different types of ale. The propagation and drying process have been specifically designed to deliver high quality beer yeast that can be used simply and with reliability to help produce ales of the finest quality. No colours, preservatives or other unnatural substances have been used in its preparation. The yeast is produced in ISO 9002 certified plants.
Flocculation: Medium to High
Optimum Ferm Temp: Traditional Ale Temperature 17-22°C (62.5-72°F)
Rehydration Instructions: Sprinkle the yeast on the surface of 10 times its weight of sterile water at 30°C to 35°C (86-95°F). Do not use wort, distilled or reverse osmosis water as loss in viability might result. Gently break any clumps to ensure that all yeast is in contact with the rehydration medium. DO NOT STIR. Leave to rest for 15 minutes then suspend (stir) the yeast completely and leave it for 5 more minutes. Then adjust temperature to that of the wort and inoculate without delay. With changes of temperature of more than 10°C adjust the temperature in 5 minute intervals of 10°C to avoid the formation of petite mutants or incomplete fermentation.
Storage: All active dry yeast should be stored dry and below 8°C.
This strain exhibits classic dry Belgian flavours, and displays an aggressive primary fermentation. We especially like this strain for Strong Golden, Tripel, and other Belgian-style beers. NOTE: This strain contains...
This strain produces ales with a full chewy malt flavor and character, but finishes dry, producing famously balanced beers. Expect moderate nutty and stone-fruit esters. Best used for the production...
A rapid starting and constant fermenting semi-dry white wine yeast that will enhance fruit flavors and add fruity esters, ideal for fermenting with neutral grapes or concentrates. Limits phenol...
This strain is a great choice for New England-style IPAs. It produces a medium-ester profile similar to WLP008 East Coast Ale Yeast and leaves some residual sweetness, which helps accentuate...
