I understand that yeast is close to it's best before date and will require a starter to be made with it before use. It is up to the brewer to determine if this yeast is appropriate for their equipment and techniques.
This product has a Best Before date of 25-Oct-2018. Creating a starter for this product is recommended.
This blend celebrates the strengths of WLP001-clean, neutral fermentation and versatile usage-and adds two other strains that belong to the same 'clean/neutral' flavor category. The additional strains create complexity in the finished beer. This blend tastes more lager-like than WLP001. Hop flavors and bitterness are accentuated, but not to the extent of WLP001. A slight amount of sulfur is produced during fermentation.
