Wyeast 1217-PC West Coast IPA
Private Collection Strain - Seasonal Availability Only
Species - Saccharomyces cerevisiae
This strain is ideally suited to the production of west-coast style American craft beers, especially pale, IPA, red, and hoppy specialty sub-styles. Thorough attenuation, temp tolerance, and good flocculation make this an easy strain to work with. Flavor is balanced neutral with mild ester formation at warmer temps, allowing hops, character malts, and flavorings to show through.

So this strain is tried and true. I've literally used it to ferment an IPA, mostly in a parking lot during mid summer, and come out with a KILLER, malt forward and juicy NE style IPA. I don't necessarily recommend the 'parking lot' method, but it shows the versatility and cleanliness of this strain that it could be used and abused and still make a nice malt and hop forward IPA. Think of it like fermenting an IPA with the fruit forward characteristics of the 1968 (Fullers) strain, but with the attenuative power of the 1098 (Stone) strain!
