Youngs Ale Yeast is an example of a traditional top fermenting English Ale yeast which is used in many commercial breweries.
This is a pure single strain culture which has a high temperature tolerance, high alcohol tolerance, relatively low risk of bacterial contamination and outstanding sedimentation characteristics, which makes it a consistently popular option, delivering reliable top quality Ales.
This yeast produces a full bodied, fruity Ale with a hoppy, estery nose and palate. When using this yeast you can look forward to a high final gravity that delivers additional body, weight and a fuller flavour to competitor yeasts.
Young's Ale yeast can be sensitive to variations in fermentation temperature but where constant temperature is used it is a forceful strain with very strong fermentation and moderate attenuation properties.
Alcohol Tolerance: 9.5% v/v
Viable cell count > 5.0 x 10 CFU/gram

During yeast manufacture, special processes are employed to promote very high levels of the natural compound - Trehalose within the yeast. Trehalose is a natural sugar produced within the yeast cells to protect itself during prolonged storage and stress conditions.
The very high levels of trehalose acheieved removes the need for re-hydration before adding to must or wort.
