Clean, crisp flavor characteristics with low fruitiness and mild ester production. A very versatile yeast for styles that desire dominant malt and hop character. This proven performer from California has become a very popular "house" strain. May yield citrus notes with cooler 60-66°F fermentations. Use for pale ales, IPA's, cream ales, or other american styles.

Been brewing beer for five years now. Made some good beers, made some just ok beers, and made one bad beer. Then I got this recipe kit and the West Coast Ale yeast. This has created my favorite beer to date. Gonna just keep making it this year.
Omega Yeast OYL004 - West Coast Ale I
Worked great, i added 5lbs. Of Maris otter. . That yeast was super active...work great got the results i was expecting... great product..
So far so good. We just made it thru primary fermentation and are in secondary. We were able to taste a sample and it is good. Fruity. Almost peachish. We’ll see how it settles in a few weeks.
Good yeast, but it costs a little more, and I was wondering why. My guess is that they give you a little more yeast than other producers do, which helps insure a good fermentation.
