LalBrew® BRY-97 West Coast Ale Yeast - Lallemand

LalBrew® BRY-97 West Coast Ale Yeast - Lallemand

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

"West Coast Ale" yeast is known for its clean, neutral flavor profile and strong attenuation. With no overwhelming characteristics, this yeast lets your grain and hop choices shine! 
BRY-97 gives you a quick start and vigorous fermentation, which can be completed in 4 days if kept above 63° F. The aroma is slightly estery, almost neutral and doesn’t display off-odors when handled properly. Because of its high flocculation, it may slightly reduce hop bitterness levels. Best results when used at traditional ale temperatures (62 - 72° F) and after rehydration in the recommended manner (see the documents tab for re-hydration procedure).

Beer Styles: American ales
Aroma: Neutral with slight ester
Attenuation: Medium to High
Fermentation Range: 59-72°F
Flocculation: High
Alcohol Tolerance: 13% ABV

*See the technical data sheet below for information on rehydration, usage and storage.

Good California yeast
not as predictable as SA-05, in my opinion, but it's a decent alternative chico strain.

Clean, easy to use
After using exclusively wet yeasts for years, I decided to give this a try on a really simple, west coast pale ale to see how the yeast performs. Really clean, balanced yeast, no off flavors, no unusual esters. And it's also nice and cheap! I'll definitely be using this again.
