This classic ESB strain from White Labs originates from one of England’s biggest independent breweries. Though traditionally it is used for English-style ales like milds, bitters, porters, and stouts, it is also excellent for American-style pale ales and IPAs. The residual sweetness brings out the malt character, plus the mild fruity esters, which adds complexity to the flavor and aroma of finished beers. It is common for this yeast to look coagulated, and slight diacetyl production is also common. Because of this strain’s high flocculation, the beer will finish clear and the yeast can easily be harvested from the fermenter for future use.
