GY031 British Ale #2 GigaYeast is from a traditional British brewery from one of the oldest and best-known English cask ales. Very flocculent — GY 031 produces clear beer.
GY031 British Ale #2 leaves a slightly sweet malty flavor. Flavor profile is nearly neutral at lower fermentation temps. Slight banana/fruit notes appear at higher temps.
Perfect for English style pale ales, stouts, porters, bitters browns etc.
GY031 British Ale #2 has strong attenuation and excellent flocculation with slightly more fruity ester production than GY011 British Ale #1 GigaYeast

* Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato. High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato.
† The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style. As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temp as desired. Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45˚ – 58˚F. If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65-68˚F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs).
