LalBrew® BRY-97 West Coast Ale Yeast

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 high quality ales. LalBrew® BRY-97 is a neutral strain with a
high flocculation ability that can be used to make a wide variety of American-style beers.
Through expression of a beta-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 Cream Ale, American Wheat, Scotch Ale, American Pale Ale, American
Amber, American Brown, American IPA, American Stout, Russian Imperial Stout, Imperial IPA,
Roggen/Rye, Old Ale and American Barleywine.
