WLP008 East Coast Ale Yeast, AKA “Brewer Patriot” strain, is best used to replicate many classic American beer styles. Its neutral character similar to WLP001, offers less attenuation and will not accentuate hop bitterness as much and offers a hint of tartness in your beer. Very clean with low esters.
White Labs recommends this yeast strain for golden, blonde, honey, and pales ales and German alt style ales.
