2007 White Labs Strains
From White Labs web site:
White Labs has introduced the new Platinum program lineup for 2007, and it includes promoting some strains to year-round status and bringing others into the program for the first time.
The long-running and popular Platinum program involves releasing two different strains every two months for homebrewers to use. The program was instituted to bring greater diversity of yeast strains to homebrewers and to give them a chance to experiment with strains otherwise only available to professionals.
The former Platinum strains WLP041 Pacific Ale and WLP940 Mexican Lager are being added year-round, and additional changes to the lineup were made, including the addition of WLP566 Saison II, WLP515 Antwerp Ale Yeast, and WLP009 Australian Ale Yeast.
In another change for the year-round homebrew lineup, WLP010 10th Anniversary Blend is being discontinued. It was created for the 10th anniversary of White Labs; since that time has ended, so has this yeast blend.
As for the Platinum program, here is the full lineup for 2007. Note that many of the strains that were offered in previous years are still part of the program but are offered at different times of the year.
January/February – WLP009 Australian Ale and WLP022 Essex
