This strain was the first yeast strain produced by White Labs in 1995. It’s our best-selling yeast, famous for its clean flavors and hardy fermentations. Known for its use in hoppy beers, it accentuates hop flavors and aromas and attenuates well, even for high gravity beers. This strain has the ability to be used in almost any style of ale ranging from IPA to porter and even kölsch, which makes it a great all-around house strain. 

**European customers can now order a 100% certified organic version of this strain from White Labs Copenhagen. The organic strains can be identified by their green label, the certified organic logo designations of the EU, USDA and Denmark as well as the addition of an “O” following the WLP strain number.
