LalBrew BRY-97™

LalBrew BRY-97™ is an American West Coast-style ale yeast that was selected from the Siebel Institute Culture Collection for its ability to produce clean fermentations for high quality ales. LalBrew BRY-97™ is a neutral and highly attenuating strain with a high flocculation ability that can be used to make a wide variety of American-style beers. Through expression of a β-glucosidase enzyme, LalBrew BRY-97™ can promote hop biotransformation and accentuate hop flavor and aroma. Traditional ales made with LalBrew BRY-97™ include but are certainly not limited to American Pale Ale, American Amber, American Brown, American IPA, Imperial IPA, American Stout, Cream Ale, American Wheat, Scotch Ale, Russian Imperial Stout, Roggen/Rye, Old Ale and American Barleywine.

A clean yeast with subtle apricot and stone fruit esters and we can easily push the BRY-97 up to 10 generations.
Bry-97 has become our primary strain for most American styles and we have moved some of our core products to it from pitchable liquid, we couldn’t be happier with the results!
We use LalBrew® BRY-97 extensively, as our quote on quote clean American yeast. I also love your Belle Saison yeast, it’s rock solid reliable. It always ferments down, it ferments fast and it always give us that aesthetic Belgian twang. We have used it exclusively in pretty much all of our Saison style beers for years now. Belle Saison, I prefer Belle Saison over pretty much any other Saison yeast made that I have tried (liquid or dry).
