Dive into the heart of Germany's brewing heritage with White Labs WLP003 German Ale II Yeast, a distinguished member of the White Labs Vault Collection. This yeast is your gateway to producing authentic German ales with a clean, balanced profile.

Key Features:

  • Vault Collection: As part of White Labs' exclusive Vault Collection, WLP003 is a special release yeast strain, offering unique fermentation characteristics and flavors.
  • Style Adaptability: Perfect for brewing traditional German styles like Kölsch, Alt, and German Pale Ale, this yeast emphasizes the malt and hop nuances.
  • Clean Fermentation: With its ability to produce low levels of fruity esters and minimal diacetyl, WLP003 ensures a crisp, clean-tasting beer.
  • Optimal Fermentation Temperatures: Ferment at 65-69°F (18-20°C) to maintain the yeast's clean profile while allowing the development of characteristic subtle esters.

Guidance for Use:

  1. Pitching: Use an appropriate cell count to achieve a healthy fermentation—typically 0.75 to 1.25 million cells per mL per degree Plato for ales.
  2. Aeration: Properly aerate the wort pre-pitch to supply the yeast with the necessary oxygen for vigorous fermentation.
  3. Temperature Management: Keep the fermentation temperature steady within the recommended range to ensure a consistent and clean fermentation profile.
  4. Conditioning: Cold conditioning post-fermentation can enhance beer clarity and flavor stability.

WLP003 from White Labs Vault Collection is not just a yeast; it's a passage to authentically replicate the revered taste of German ales. Embrace the precision and quality of German brewing with every batch you craft using this exceptional yeast strain.
