The NorCal Ale #1 Strain

Clean Fermenting, versatile strain from one of the most famous California Pale Ales. Neutral flavor profile creates a crisp beer and allows hops to shine. Strong attenuator and good flocculation perfectly suited for a large variety of styles. Good choice for high gravity beers.

Attenuation Medium Gravity*:  76% – 80%
Attenuation High Gravity*: 78% – 80%  (10.5% – 11.0% ABV)
Temperature Range†:  64˚F – 77˚F
Flocculation:  Medium

Style Uses:

  • India Pale Ale
  • Pale Ale
  • Barley Wine
  • Stout
  • Bitter
  • ESB

* Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 70˚F and Lager yeast at 50˚F.  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).
