White Labs Yeast - 095 Burlington Ale

White Labs Yeast - 095 Burlington Ale


This yeast has proven to be great in IPAs. This is a great yeast for people who like WLP001 California Ale Yeast because this yeast throws a little personality and body into your beer. Esters are higher than WLP001. This yeast has been known to result in more diacetyl so increasing the temperature at the end of fermentation is suggested.


Alcohol Tolerance: 
Medium - High (8 - 12%)
Optimum Fermentation Temperature:

I have used this yeast for a number of hoppier, blonder styles, and I couldn't be happier. As stated, the ester profile is more pronounced than California ale. Be mindful of that when selecting hops, as the stone fruit/strawberry aromas may dominate lightly-hopped beers. It will add complexity to citrusy hops but may dilute the citrus tones.

Attenuation has regularly been in the 85-90% range, much higher than the predicted. This is perhaps because I use a portion of sugar in all of my beers (I like what it does for body and taste) and have been propagating the same culture for a few generations. The body remains considerably full despite the attenuation, so watch the unfermentables and mash lower than you would for the style.

I am looking forward to exploring this yeast with some darker styles, a classic NW Amber, a balanced American Brown, and a Hoppy Black Ale.

First time using this yeast -- making a 6 Gallon session IPA (1.042OG with Mosaic, Mandarina Bavaria, and Huell Melon) -=-

VERY HAPPY with WL's new packaging. Easy to use / simple ++ Yeast takes of FAST!!

According to the packaging no starter required for 5 Gallon 1.050OG -- and this seems to be doing just fine (as package dictates). Good Size Krausen and activity within the first 24 hours + smells good. Can't wait to rack, package, and sample
