I began using it heavily when I noticed that it was one of the few clean American-style strains that reliably attained terminal gravity in my cool cellar during the winter months (62-65 F) without agitation or rousing. It is very clean. Although flocculation is fairly low, a couple of weeks at lagering temperatures after primary will leave a bright beer. I find that it mutes hop bitterness and requires a bit more time than 001 to pass its \"green\" stage: for me, reliability in exchange for longer maturation and a bit less bitterness. Also, 008 is very sensitive to mash temperature in my experience relative to other White Labs strains, so if you are an all-grain brewer, precision at mash-in is probably warranted with East Coast Ale Yeast. Finally, this strain has done very well for me in beers topping 8% ABV, so it can stand some alcohol stress.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"views-row views-row-5 views-row-odd views-row-last\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"review\"\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e“\u003cspan class=\"field-content\"\u003eA GREAT YEAST PRODUCT\u003c\/span\u003e”\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"spec\"\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eBy:\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cspan class=\"field-content\"\u003eAdam Summers\u003c\/span\u003e | \u003cstrong\u003eDate:\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cspan class=\"field-content\"\u003eDec., 18th 2007\u003c\/span\u003e | \u003cstrong\u003eBeer(s) Brewed:\u003cspan class=\"field-content\"\u003eAmber Ale\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"field-content\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eI ordered a different strain of White Labs yeast and got this as a surprise substitute from my supplier. I was pleasantly surprised. Using Briess light malt extract (3 kg in five gallons water), 1 oz. Willamette hop pellets, 1 pound 40-L crystal malt and 1 pound 80-L crystal malt, this yeast fermented a very satisfying, very malty amber ale with subdued hop character, acceptable head retention and great clarity (aided by Sparkalloid in the secondary). Flocculation was very high - nearly two gallons of head space in the primary was almost not enough. Also, I had much more yeast migrate to the secondary fermenter than I am used to with a completed fermentation (yes, I checked the gravity), resulting in a bit of yeast bite. But with minor tweaks these issues should be easy to resolve, and I happily bottled about a pound of dilute slurry for use in future batches.

White Labs Yeast - 008 East Coast Ale

Product Description
$8.99
Maximum quantity available reached.

Our "Brewer Patriot" strain can be used to reproduce many of the American versions of classic beer styles. Similar neutral character of WLP001, but less attenuation, less accentuation of hop bitterness, slightly less flocculation, and a little tartness. Very clean and low esters. Great yeast for golden, blonde, honey, pales and German alt style ales.

GOOD FOR NEUTRAL YEAST CHARACTER SPICE AND HOP FORWARD BEERS.

By: Sean Murphy | Date: Feb., 9th 2014 | Beer(s) Brewed:American Rye IPA

 

I've used it twice and fermented at 68*F both times with apparent attenuation right on at 70%. I like the neutral character for hop forward ales.

TASTY - EAST COAST MEETS WEST COAST PALE ALE

By: Walter Nixon | Date: Jan., 26th 2014 | Beer(s) Brewed:American Pale Ale

 

Made a Pale ale with Maris Otter Pale Ale malt, crystal 60l, carafoam, and light munich. Used the WLP008 for the east coast low attenuation and hop mellowing properties. Used Bravo, cascade, and dry hopped with Chinook. Came out fantastic. Bitter, malty sweetness, and a little tart. Excellent balance.
