White Labs Dry English Ale Yeast (WLP007)

Characteristics

From the White Labs Website : "Clean, highly flocculent, and highly attenuative yeast. This yeast is similar to WLP002 in flavor profile, but is 10% more attenuative. This eliminates the residual sweetness, and makes the yeast well suited for high gravity ales. It is also reaches terminal gravity quickly. 80% attenuation will be reached even with 10% ABV beers."

WLP007 is a great choice for higher-gravity English style beers like Imperial Stouts or strong Robust Porters where you need a highly attenuative yeast to eat a lot of sugars. Note also that this yeast can ferment in the lower end of 'standard' English strains, which makes for a nice clean beer when kept around 66 degrees.
