Abbey Ale Yeast WLP530 PurePitch Next Generation
The PurePitch® Next Generation is an evolution of White Labs' PurePitch - the most superior and consistent yeast on the market - has been made better with new packaging powered by FlexCell® technology for ease of use and a pitch rate resulting in a foolproof fermentation every time. The new packaging features a modular pouch with a cap and a consistent cell concentration intended to pitch at 7.5 million cells/mL per 5 gallons. The new process has also increased the viability and improved the shelf life of the yeast now lasting 4-6 months. Meaning that now you get more yeast and a foolproof fermentation with out a starter since you are starting out with 2x the pitch rate than before.
White Labs Abbey Ale Yeast (WLP530) is a traditional Belgian abbey yeast strain. It has a very high alcohol tolerance, up to 15% ABV. It will produce cherry, plum, and pear esters. It has medium flocculation that results in clear, drinkable beer.
