White Labs WLP028 Edinburgh Scottish Ale Yeast
WLP028 Edinburgh Scottish Ale Yeast
 
WLP028 Edinburgh Scottish Ale Yeast -- This yeast can be used an everyday strain, similar to WLP001. Scotland is famous for its strong and malty ales. So this is a great yeast for when you want to reproduce complex and flavourful Scottish style ales. The hop character is not muted as it is with the WLP002 strain.

Beast of a Yeast March 20, 2017
Reviewer: Ron from BC  
Brewed a 5 gallon Stout with an O.G. of 1.038  then used all of the yeast cake and trub from the primary as a starter for a monster 1.250 O.G. Scotch Ale.  Stout brewed at 18C for 1.5 weeks and took the beer down to 1.010 in the first few days. Was one of the best stouts I've made, in my opinion. The Scotch Ale finished at 1.032 for an abv. of about 12-13%. Started it at 11C for 1 week then ramped up to 20C over the next 4 weeks. Needed a blow off tube for the first week and it was done fermenting before week two was up, the rest was precautionary. Turned out great even with the huge O.G. and % alcohol.  No fusel and super clean. So I think the temp range and O.G. White Labs lists are definitely conservative. I highly recommend this yeast.

Great Yeast Strain December 31, 2016
Reviewer: James Wallace from Hamilton, ON Canada  
I love this strain. It is supposedly the same as Wyeast 1728, and will ferment cleanly at temperatures down to 15 C (despite White Labs' recommended temps).

I've done Scottish Ales (mostly 80 Shilling or Export, but also holds up to a Wee Heavy), sweet stouts, Pale  Ales, even an "English" IPA. All of them turned out great!

Also, White Labs did a shoot out with a bunch of their yeasts on cider a while ago, and this one was voted number 2 of the batch, no reason to have a specialty yeast around when you can just rinse it off from your last batch of beer!
