BRY-97 American West Coast Yeast was selected from the Siebel Institute Culture Collection and is used by a number of commercial breweries to produce different types of ale. It is a classic American ale yeast that offers the convenience and long shelf life of dried yeast along with high quality standards and excellent performance. Quick, clean, and well-attenuating are the chief properties of this yeast. It is most comparable to the "Chico"-style strains. In our experience, this strain stays clean at relatively high temperatures (up to 78F), and flocculation is marginally better than other "Chico" strains. Due to the slightly higher flocculation tendencies, it does slightly reduce bittering levels in the finished beer.

Have not drank the beer that it is in ,so opinion is ready yet.
Re-hydrated and attemperated (2 packs) per instructions for 6 gallon double IPA batch. Many reviews online reported long lag times. Started and fermented at 72 degrees, massive krausen which blew the airlock so switched to blowoff tube. Achieved 82% attenuation. Yeast mostly dropped out by day 14 when I bottled and every beer was clear. Used whirlfloc in the boil but no other fining agents. Highly recommend this yeast, will use again.
