Doing split wort trials of my IPA (1.064, 70 IBU) with these 4 yeasts : the three pure strain yeasts(WLP001,WLP051 and WLP810),and the blend (WLP060) with all other variables controlled as well as possible ( wort, ferment temp, pitch rate, oxygenation, fermenter type) I and everyone who has tasted the beers produced by the three yeasts prefer the WLP 060. Something about the harmony of the three yeasts, the hops shine, there is a a good amount of maltiness and the crisp lager character just make the beer shine. The order of preference has been: 1-WLP060, 2-WLP051, 3-WLP001 and 4-WLP810. One potential drawback to this blend is that overtime the ratio of the 3 strains will likely change due to individual reproductive characteristics of each strain, so its probably not a great house yeast. Highly recommended for an excellent westcoast style IPA.\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-2 views-row-even\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"review\"\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e“\u003cspan class=\"field-content\"\u003eGREAT YEAST FOR THOSE OF US WHO CAN'T DO REGULAR LAGERS\u003c\/span\u003e”\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"spec\"\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eBy:\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cspan class=\"field-content\"\u003eCarol\u003c\/span\u003e | \u003cstrong\u003eDate:\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003cspan class=\"field-content\"\u003eJul., 2nd 2013\u003c\/span\u003e | \u003cstrong\u003eBeer(s) Brewed: \u003cspan class=\"field-content\"\u003eGerman Pils, IPL, ginger cream 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'm very happy with this yeast!

I'm using this yeast from now on for any lager styles. The German Pilsner I made came out great and friends were surprised to find I used this yeast. I made an IPA which had enough of a lager taste for friends to say it was really an IPL. This yeast seems to let both the hops and malt come through. I don't have great temperature control but it doesn't seem to matter with this yeast.

Having been a chef for numerous years, my system of recipe formulation coincides with beer-making--If it works don't change it. Since I only brew 4-5 times a year I seriously considered canceling my brewing session, but opted to use the American Ale yeast blend instead. After primary fermentation, secondary, dry-hopping, and five days in the bottle, I couldn't wait any longer to try it. It still needs more carbonation but the flavor\/aroma profile between hops and malt was phenomenal! Since I am not a big fan of lager beers, I was afraid of how it would affect the finished beer. I am very pleased with the balance of this yeast and can't wait to try the stout when its finished.

White Labs Yeast - 060 American Ale Blend

Product Description
$8.99
Maximum quantity available reached.

Our most popular yeast strain is WLP001, California Ale Yeast. This blend celebrates the strengths of California- clean, neutral fermentation, versatile usage, and adds two other strains that belong to the same 'clean/neutral' flavor category. The additional strains create complexity to the finished beer. This blend tastes more lager like than WLP001. Hop flavors and bitterness are accentuated, but not to the extreme of California. Slight sulfur will be produced during fermentation.

FANTASTIC AMERICAN IPAS- PREFERRED OVER ISOLATED STAINS.

By: Tim | Date: Nov., 30th 2014 | Beer(s) Brewed: American IPA

 

I have been playing around with WLP 001, WLP 051, WLP 810 and WLP 060 in my brewery. Doing split wort trials of my IPA (1.064, 70 IBU) with these 4 yeasts : the three pure strain yeasts(WLP001,WLP051 and WLP810),and the blend (WLP060) with all other variables controlled as well as possible ( wort, ferment temp, pitch rate, oxygenation, fermenter type) I and everyone who has tasted the beers produced by the three yeasts prefer the WLP 060. Something about the harmony of the three yeasts, the hops shine, there is a a good amount of maltiness and the crisp lager character just make the beer shine. The order of preference has been: 1-WLP060, 2-WLP051, 3-WLP001 and 4-WLP810. One potential drawback to this blend is that overtime the ratio of the 3 strains will likely change due to individual reproductive characteristics of each strain, so its probably not a great house yeast. Highly recommended for an excellent westcoast style IPA.

 

GREAT YEAST FOR THOSE OF US WHO CAN'T DO REGULAR LAGERS

I'm very happy with this yeast! I don't have the ability to ferment at lager temperatures so this yeast is great for me. It's clean with a nice lager flavor in the finished beer. I'm using this yeast from now on for any lager styles. The German Pilsner I made came out great and friends were surprised to find I used this yeast. I made an IPA which had enough of a lager taste for friends to say it was really an IPL. This yeast seems to let both the hops and malt come through.

Having been a chef for numerous years, my system of recipe formulation coincides with beer-making--If it works don't change it. Since I only brew 4-5 times a year I seriously considered canceling my brewing session, but opted to use the American Ale yeast blend instead.
