Over a decade ago, White Labs sought to produce a dry strain to support the growing interest in dry brewing yeasts.  During that quest, they found that there wasnt a good opportunity to make the dry yeast we wanted to make, one we could 100% stand behind.  

After several years of research and trials with dry yeast production and fermentation, White Labs finally entrusted our beloved yeasts to a family-owned and operated, experienced yeast manufacturer, with a passion for the industry, just like us: Lallemand Brewing.  In collaboration, White Labs brought the yeast strains and uncompromising quality White Labs is known for in a brand new product.   This first strain release brings you an authentic dry version of WLP001 California Ale Yeast®, the most popular brewing strain in the world.  

Now you may ask, Are your dry and liquid yeast the same?  Yes, and no.  This strain is indeed WLP001 California Ale Yeast® and can be verified by genetic identification.  The standardized quality control White Labs performs on their liquid yeast is also the same as what they employ with their dry yeast.  The process by which liquid and dry yeast are grown, stored, and used can be different, resulting in some practical differences for brewers and nuances in the flavor and aroma profile of the final product.

Providing the most flexible options for brewers has always been important to White Labs, and they are excited to offer another choice when it comes to yeast.
