WLP005 British Ale Yeast wins the election!

9 Nov

The White House beer winner is in! As background White Labs brewed President Barack Obama’s homebrew recipe, including his use of a dried, non-American made yeast. Obama’s beer was paired against three other variations of the same recipe with the only difference being White Labs liquid yeast. People voted in the weeks before Election Day Nov. 6, 2012, and the White House beer ballots were counted at the end of the business day. Unlike the national elections in which Barack reclaimed his presidency, his homebrew recipe lost. The winner by a landslide was a beer made with White Labs yeast — WLP005 British Ale Yeast. But the beer won’t be on tap for the next four years. It will be more like a couple days. Try it soon!
