This yeast thrives in a fermentation temperature range of 54 - 77°F (ideally 59 - 71ºF). It is an ideal yeast for American beer styles: pale ales, porters, stouts, blondes, IPAs and highly hopped beers.

This active dry yeast does not require hydration or a yeast starter to begin fermentation. If you want to reduce lag phase and grow yeast cell count, consider our Yeast Starter Kit. This 11g packet treats a 5 gallon batch of beer.
