California Ale Yeast -  White Labs WLP001

White Labs California Premium Active Dry Ale yeast is known for its ability to be used in almost any style Ale. It produces a clean, dry, balanced beer. It also accentuates the flavor of the malt and hops in your homebrew. 


This strain was the first yeast strain produced by White Labs in 1995. When used in hoppy beers, it accentuates hop flavors and aromas and attenuates well, even for high-gravity beers. This strain can be used in almost any style of ale ranging from IPA to porter and even Kölsch, making it a great all-around house strain.
