Standard American ale yeast from a well-known California brewery. Very clean, crisp flavor characteristics with low fruitness and mild ester production. A very versatile yeast for styles that desire dominant malt and hop character. This strain makes a wonderful "House" strain. Mild citrus notes develop with cooler 60-66F (15-19C) fermentations. Normally requires filtration for bright beers. 1056 is particularly well suited to hoppy styles like IPA and American Amber. It also happens to be the yeast responsible for the nation's favorite Pale Ale.
