Danstar American West Coast Ale Dry Yeast
New! 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. It is a classic American ale yeast that offers the convenience and long shelf life of dried yeast along with high quality standards and excellent performance.
Quick, clean, and well-attenuating are the chief properties of this yeast. It is most comparable to the "Chico"-style strains. In our experience, this strain stays clean at relatively high temperatures (up to 78F), and flocculation is marginally better than other "Chico" strains. Due to the slightly higher flocculation tendencies, it does slightly reduce bittering levels in the finished beer.

Nice citrus flavor
A very clean strain, almost lager-like. Similar to WLP001, but doesn't accentuate hops quite as much. Went from pitching to kegging in just 10 days, 3 days to condition in the keg and was very impressed with finished product for such a short fermenation period.
Used this after rehydrating it for my SMASH pale ale kit and it made for a great beer. Had about a 3" krausen when I let it get to about 70 degrees. Finished off at 1.010. The beer has been well received so far and the yeast must have played a part. As others have noted, it takes a little longer than 05, but I don't see any reason not to try this strain.
I was brewing a triple ipa,this was the recommended yeast from NB.I wasn't sure if it would be enough for the high gravity brew I was making. I did a 1 liter yeast starter,twice, because I didn't have a 2 liter flask.(I have one now.)I'm dryhopping right now and the abv is 11.5 . Seems like the right choice!
