BRY-97 American West Coast Yeast was selected from the Siebel Institute Culture Collection and is used by a number of commercial breweries to produce different types of ale.
Quick start and vigorous fermentation, which can be completed in 4 days above 17 °C.
Medium to high attenuation.
BRY-97 American West Coast Yeast is a flocculent strain. Settling can be promoted by cooling and use of fining agents and isinglass.
The aroma is slightly estery, almost neutral and does not display malodours when properly handled. It may tend, because of flocculation, to slightly reduce hop bitter levels
Best when used at traditional ale temperatures after re-hydration in the recommended manner.
