West Coast Ale I By OmegaAles
Popularly called “Chico,” West Coast Ale I is a reliable, versatile and popular neutral foundation for displays of malts and hops. Often used as a house strain, it is highly attenuative and moderately flocculent. And it ferments crisp and clean with light citrus notes under 66° F (19° C). Also try DIPA (OYL-052) or British I (OYL-006) to highlight hops more, or West Coast II (OYL-009) and Scottish Ale (OYL-015) for malt displays.
