Great For All English Styles
Hale's Ales is one if my favorite local breweries and this is their yeast. This Seattle brewery was inspired by traditional English methods and adopted yeast from a traditional English brewery, Gale's. I have used this with a friend to brew his first partial extract beer, a black IPA, and on my own with an All-Grain IPA. Both utilized Chinook and Citra hops and they shine. I did not utilize a starter in either case and the yeast began to visibly get to work in mere hours. Recommended for all English styles, or the west coast American styles they inspired.

Worked great for my Brown Ale
I used this when I brewed a batch of Caribou Slobber. I didn't use a starter but it began very quickly and the flavor has been outstanding.

Good yeast for sweet stout
I bought this yeast with a chocolate milk stout recipe and it was really good. Malty and flavorful helped give depth to stout. I definitely didn't want this to end up tasting like a thicker dry stout and I wasn't disappointed. Brought out the chocolate and brown sugar flavors.

Great ale yeast
I liked this yeast for the chocolate stout, I used a starter for this one and it fermented for close to 36 hours. After coming out of secondary, I've saved some of this for another batch I'll be making soon. The resulting beer has a clean finish with no traces of the yeast used. Great product I would definitely use it again.

Great yeast for darker ales.
I use this yeast in all of my brown ales, and stouts. Produces nice malty flavors. Tried a few others, but I like this one the best.

Great Yeast
I used this yeast in a batch of Caribou Slobber. I used the smack pack and didn't see the need for a starter and the yeast took off in a vigorous fermentation.

Great PNW style yeast
Very fast and floculent fermentation that gives any pale ale or IPA a distinct Seattle/Portland twist.

Great For Stouts
Used this yeast in a sweet stout that will be aging for the winter. Picked Northwest because the temperature range is 65¡-75¡ F which helps out brewing in July. Pitched at 70¡ F and it took off 12hrs in and lasted for 4 days with extremely vigorous fermentation that popped the top off my bucket. Filled the basement with a nice malty/fruity aroma, which comes through in the flavor of the stout. Very happy with the results.

I purchased this originally to use with my Caribou Slobber kit and ended up going with a different yeast. Since I still have this pack, what other Northern Brewer beers would you recommend I try with this yeast? I was thinking about an IPA.

BEST ANSWER: Hello Ethan,

Thank you for choosing Northern Brewer! Realistically, that yeast strain would be great in any pale ale, extra special bitter, IPA etc... It would also go quite well with the Nut brown ale, or the honey brown ale. I hope that this helps, have a great day!
Hi I bought carribou slobber kit 4 months back, since then I have kept this year in fridge, is it ok to use it now , will it give equivalent benefits as it would have 4 months back ?
G A on Dec 5, 2015

Yes, it should still be fresh enough. It may have staled a bit, but it should be brew-ready! One key to long-term storage is to keep the yeast in the fridge. That's really the most important thing.


I am making an all grain IPA, the gravity after boil was 1.06, I did make an 7 gallon batch, it started right away with huge krousen, the primary has taken 12 days and still looks very yeasty, it is at 69* how much longer to finish this or do I need another yeast to finish this?
A shopper on Jan 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You should check the specific gravity and look for a consistent reading over the course of 2 or 3 days. Then you know the beer is no longer fermenting.
Looking to brew a Black IPA recipe I came across. It calls for TWO packs of this yeast. I've never used two packs of yeast before. Is this common?
Beer Specs (maybe this is why)
Estimated O.G. = 1.066
Estimated F.G. = 1.015
Estimated ABV = 6.7%
Estimated bitterness = 60 IBUs

Thx, JDG
F L on Aug 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That would not be unusual, with a beer recipe starting at that gravity. Most yeasts can handle up to around 1.065, this is of course right on the edge of requiring more yeast to best ferment the beer. If you used a single Wyeast, you'd at least want to make a yeast starter a few days in advance, that would build up the yeast numbers and it would be able to do a fermentation like this with no problem. But using two is a good idea in very-high gravity brews, having more yeast in there will produce better results. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
