Beer Brewing Classes



WLP022 Essex Ale Yeast: Flavorful British-style yeast. Produces a slightly fruity and bready character. Good top fermenting yeast strain is well suited for top cropping (collecting). Ideal for classic British milds, pale ales, bitters, and stouts. Does not flocculate as much as WLP002 and WLP005.

This is a Vault Yeast Strain and is only released April/May/June.

Recommended for: Ales

Attenuation: 71 - 76%

Flocculation: Medium - High

Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 66 - 70F

Alcohol Tolerance: Medium (5 - 10%)

Concerned about shipping? Don`t be! We ship all of our liquid yeast with ice packs.

Each vial or pouch of White Labs liquid yeast is designed to be used directly in 5 gallons of wort, hence the term `pitchable yeast.` Each vial is equivalent in cell count to a pint starter or 75-150 billion cells. One vial will usually start fermentation in a 5 gallon batch in 5-15 hours at 70F. If a faster start is desired or if initial gravity is over 1.070 we recommend a 1-2 pint starter be made or add a second vial or pouch of yeast.
