Product details

LalBrew® BRY-97 American West Coast Ale Dry Yeast (Danstar) 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.

Through expression of a beta-glucosidase enzyme, LalBrew® BRY-97 can promote hop biotransformation and accentuate hop flavor and aroma.

Good in a pinch

My first choice is usually liquid yeast because of the variety, but this is a excellent option for most standard styles. Its very clean tasting yeast good for styles where you want to keep the flavor profile low.
