  • White Labs WLP004 Irish Stout

    White Labs WLP004 Irish Stout

    This is the yeast from one of the oldest stout producing breweries in the world. It produces a slight hint of diacetyl, balanced by a light frui|iness and slight dry crispness. Great for Irish ales, stouts, porters, browns, reds and a very interesting pal


Going to mash cool to lower finishing gravity. Using yeast cake from previous batch. CaraRed is actually RedX malt.
