White Labs English Ale Yeast WLP002 is a classic ESB strain from one of England’s largest independent breweries. While it is traditionally used for English-style ales including Milds, Bitters, Porters and Stouts, it is also ideal for American-style Pale Ales and IPAs. Residual sweetness accentuates the malt character and mild fruity esters add complexity to the flavor and aroma of the finished beer. Due to this strain’s high flocculation, the beer will finish clear and the yeast can easily be harvested from the fermenter for future use. Slight diacetyl production is normal and it is common for the yeast to have a coagulated appearance.
