WLP066 London Fog Ale - White Labs Yeast
This yeast strain does an excellent job creating juicy, fruity character perfect for New England-style IPAs. The medium-ester profile and moderate attenuation leaves a bit of a residual sweetness that helps accentuate the malt and hop flavors and aromas.
*NOTE:*During summer months, we include complimentary ice packs will all liquid yeast orders. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will stay frozen given transit times and particularly hot temperatures. For this reason, we recommend ordering dry yeast during summer months.

My new favorite yeast. I’ve used it 4 times (three were second generation) and had great results every time. Adds subtle fruity flavor to compliment hoppy beers, leaves the beer cloudy, which I prefer. I had a blow off every time so be ready for that. The best results I had were pitching near 60, raising to 66, then raising a degree every day up to 72 and holding it there until kegging on day 10.
Have used this in everything from an NEIPA to Old Ales and Imperial Stouts. It has handled them all robustly. Use at low temps for more muted esters - 64-65.
