White Labs | Ale Strains


Top-fermenting Ale Yeasts (Saccharomyces cerevisiae): Workhorse yeasts that rise during fermentation (hence "top-fermenting"). Ideal at 60-73°F (18-22°C), perfect for homebrewers. Produce a range of flavors from clean to fruity, with varying alcohol tolerance and flocculation. Used in ales, stouts, porters, wheats, Kölsch, and blondes.
