Top Benefits of White Labs Dry Yeast

  • Performance you can rely on. High live cell count and highly shelf-stable result in consistent fermentation performance with every batch.​​
  • Convenience of Production Planning. Extensive shelf life allows you to keep inventory on hand. Ensure your scheduling, planning, and those unforeseen issues like stuck or slow fermentations are stress-free.
  • Easy to Use. No rehydration or wort aeration is necessary due to the high sterol content and simple measurements of pitch rate by weight for hassle-free fermentations.
  • Gluten-Free. Propagated using beet molasses and is 100% gluten-free.

This strain was the first yeast strain produced by White Labs in 1995. It’s their best-selling yeast, famous for its clean flavours and hardy fermentations. Known for its use in hoppy beers, it accentuates hop flavours 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.
