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

Love this stuff. Great for many beers from stouts to IPAs.
It's a slow starting yeast. The lag time from pitching to starting to see movement in your airlock may be more than 24 hours, if you pitch directly into wort after following the hydration instructions on the packet. Be patient and you will be quite happy with the quality of beer you will get with using this yeast! I'm a big fan of this strain and I highly recommend it for pale ales and IPA's!
This is my go to yeast for most of my IPA's. Get a flask and foam stopper so you can kick start this dry yeast 24-48 hours before brewing with some dry malt extract (instructions included in the yeast starter kit). Fermentation takes off quickly and will be over in 4 - 7 days.
Makes good beer
