Burton Ale Yeast - WLP 023
Unlike most British ale strains, WLP023 exhibits medium flocculation that results in somewhat hazy beer, while its attenuation is in the higher end of the spectrum, delivering a drier body.
While it’s an excellent yeast for making hop-forward ales, you can use WLP023 yeast in styles that are defined by a more complex grain bill such as Brown Ale, Mild, Porter or Stout.
It is definitely a go-to yeast for making authentic British ales of all types. Still, it can certainly be employed in a broader range of styles, especially in American versions of Northern European beers.
|Description:||WLP023 Burton Ale Yeast was sourced from the very place where the first true English IPAs were brewed. This strain is defined by a pronounced ether profile with notes of pear, apple and clover, which adds a little bite to traditional British beers, specially those that employ large amounts of hops. When used in conjunction with traditional earthy English hop varieties, WLP023 creates a perfect interplay of flavours and aromas that results in complex and enjoyable Pale Ales and IPAs.|
