To upgrade the yeast to a liquid culture, purchase the Wyeast 1056 American Ale yeast separately. Providing a clean, neutral flavor profile, the strain ferments dry and crisp, allowing the malt and hop to dominate. (Additional yeast sold separately.)
Alternatively, choose the 1084 Irish Ale Yeast or the 1098 British Ale yeast as both strains ferment dark worts cleanly, enhancing the flavors and aromas of the dark malts while adding fruit notes to the finished beer.
