California Ale was the first yeast strain produced by White Labs in 1995 and is famous for its clean flavors and hardy fermentations. Known for its use in hoppy beers, it accentuates hop flavors and aromas and attenuates well, even for high gravity beers. This strain has the ability to be used in almost any style of ale ranging from IPA to porter and even kölsch, which makes it a great all-around house strain.
