This strain is more fruity than WL001, and slightly more flocculent. Attenuation is lower, resulting in a fuller bodied beer. This yeast can be used to ferment Scottish Ales because of its lower attenuation than its sister strain WL001. Try this yeast with Pale ales and IPA's. For a great experiment try splitting your wort into two separate fermenters and compare WL001 with WL051. To ferment this yeast properly pitch at 62-65F and let it rise to 66-68F. Ferment for 10-14 days in the primary.
Flocculation: Medium to High
Fermentation Temp: 66-70F
