Wyeast 1272 American Ale II
With many of the best qualities that brewers look for when brewing American styles of beer, this strain’s performance is consistent and it makes great beer. This versatile strain is a very good choice for a “House” strain. Expect a soft, clean profile with hints of nut, and a slightly tart finish. Ferment at warmer temperatures to accentuate hop character with an increased fruitiness. Or, ferment cool for a clean, light citrus character. It attenuates well and is reliably flocculent, producing bright beer without filtration.
Adding an ice pack for each tube or packet of liquid yeast in your order will reduce the effect of heat on your yeast during transit. Ice packs are an inexpensive insurance policy.
Temperature Range: 60-72F, 15-22C
Alcohol Tolerance: 10% ABV
Keep refrigerated. Do not freeze. Activator™ packages will sometimes swell slightly, or moderately during shipping or later while properly stored. This is not an indication of deterioration if the package is less than 6 months old and has been properly handled. This is result of trace amounts of nutrients, still available at the time packaging, causing small amount of culture activity and CO2 production. Some strains are more prone to this than others.
