Classic American *BETA*


BBUSA1 – Classic American *BETA*

Availability: Limited, Bootleg BETA. This is potentially a one-time only release based on response.

Source:  American breweries who originated the American IPA & Pale Ale styles

Professional brewers fondly refer to this culture as Chico. This is THE yeast for recreating authentic hop-forward beer styles like American Pale Ales, West Coast IPAs, East Coast IPAs, Brut IPAs, & Black IPAs. Reliably produces no-nonsense Blonde Ales, American Porters and Stouts. Ideal for fermenting quick sours due to its low pH tolerance.

Classic American will delightfully emphasize malt character, the stickiness of hops and the refreshing qualities of bitterness. This culture will not make a pillowy beer.
