M44 US West Coast

R 55.00 incl. Vat @15%

With the craft beer movement being lead by the USA, there has been a demand for a yeast strain which emphasizes the expressive flavours of the unique ingredients used. US West Coast Yeast is a high attenuating, top-fermenting strain that ferments with almost completely neutral attributes across a wide range of wort strengths and temperature ranges. It produces a moderately high acidity which allows the tangy, citrus hop aromas to really punch through. At the same time it is also enhancing the toasted and dark malt characters. If you plan to use a lot of expensive flavourful hops as the prominent feature of your beer, use this yeast. Suitable for American Style ales, American double IPAs, American-Style Imperial stouts and more.

Aroma Characteristics:
A very neutral strain even when fermented in higher gravity worts and warmer temperatures.
Tangy citrus and pine hops aromas will be enhanced, as well as toasted and dark malt aromas.

Flavour/Mouthfeel Characteristics:
Beers fermented with this strain will finish dry and crisp. This strain is at its best in hop
prominent American style ales. Very light ales may turn out a bit stripped, thin or astringent
if care is not taken with the mash temperature and avoiding over-extraction. Acidity is
moderately high, boosting hop flavours and creating a clipped finish.
