Most American Styles California Ale Yeast White Labs WLP001
Fermentation Temp Range (°F): 68-73
Apparent Attenuation Range (%): 73-80
Alcohol Tolerance: High, 10-15%
Pitching/Fermentation: Produces diacetyl and fusels if fermentation temperature is over 71°F or excessively underpitched. Poor attenuation if fermented below 60°F. Serial pitching will result in an extremely (88%+) attenuative yeast after 6-7 generations. Mild citrus notes develop with cooler (60-66°F) fermentations.
Notes: This yeast is famous for its clean flavors, balance, and ability to be used in almost any style ale. It accentuates the hop flavors and is extremely versatile. Low fruitiness, mild ester production. Normally requires filtration for bright beers.
