Great Alternative to the "Plain Jane Chico Strain"
Posted by Craig L on 19th Nov 2014
Tired of the Plain Jane Chico Strain? You know WLP001/US-05, where it's best attribute is that it does nothing at all? Give WLP007 a shot!
This strain is killer in your favorite American Ales. Not only does it attenuate nice and dry, it does a beautiful job balancing hops and malt allowing for even MOAR layers of lupulin awesomeness. Oh ya, it ferments fast and drops like a rock so keep your vegan craft beer drinking friends (such a thing?) happy and throw away that nasty gelatin, you don't need it with WLP007.
A word of warning, control your fermentation temperatures! This one burns through wort fast. Left unchecked, phenols can (and will) get out of control leaving you with a hot mess. Pitch cold and keep the wort temperature @ 18c until you see high krausen.
