Wyeast American Ale II 1272 Yeast is one of the more versatile yeast strains. Ferment at warmer temperatures to accentuate hop character with an increased fruitiness, or ferment at cooler temperatures for a clean, light citrus quality. Expect hints of nut, and a slightly tart finish.

    Yeast Review

    Posted by Adam W. on May 1st 2017

    This yeast was suggested by the Homebrew Supply rep. Couldn't be happier. Made a starter the night before I brewed. Pitched the next day and it took off within 2 hours. Will definitely use again.

    Nice strong fermentation all through the primary and even gave me a krausen in the secondary.
