Vault Yeast Winter 2022
It is that lovely time of the year again when Whitelabs opens their vault doors to new and exciting yeast! This season yeast brings Belgian character and hazy to your beers.
WLP073 Artisanal Country Ale Yeast: A classic Bière de Garde strain, it produces slight esters and mild phenols, while preserving the sweet aromatics from the malt bill. This strain fully attenuates, leaving the beer with a crisp, dry finish.
WLP546 Marañón Canyon Wild Cacao Yeast: This yeast was isolated from the thought to be extinct Pure Nacional variety of cacao. In 2007, this rare variety with white beans was rediscovered in the remote Marañón River Canyon in Peru. The fruity, phenolic, and wild-like characteristics of this strain make it an ideal choice for farmhouse and saison-style beers. For faster fermentation or higher attenuation, use in conjunction with a higher attenuating strain. (suggested strains: WLP001, WLP550, *WLP590 *STA1+)
WLP091 Best Coast Hazy Ale Yeast Blend: When used in conjunction with new-world modern hops, this blend produces amazing hazy beers by accentuating hop aroma reminiscent of fresh citrus and tropical fruit.
