WLP775 - English Cider Yeast
English ciders are famous for their exceptional drinkability, slight tartness, dry aftertaste, and a well-defined apple flavour that is retained even in the driest commercial examples.
The key to such a unique mix of characteristics is the indigenous yeast strain that has been used by English cider makers for centuries, and WLP775 English Cider Yeast is the very thing to make a real English cider with.
With excellent attenuation reaching up to 100% and high alcohol tolerance, this yeast tends to produce dry and refreshing ciders, but can also be used for fermenting high gravity beers, fruit and traditional wines.
English Cider YeastWLP775 English Cider Yeast is unique in a way that unlike most high attenuating strains that deliver beverages stripped of most of their initial flavour or overwhelmed by phenols and esters, this yeast keeps all the intense apple aromas and flavours in the drink. This way it can also be used to emphasize the raw materials in high gravity beer styles like Barleywine, or the flavours of grape varieties used in various wines. A must-have yeast for cider enthusiast and experimental brewers who want to have something special in their home yeast bank.
