Brewers choose Windsor to produce beers that range from pale ale to porter with moderate alcohol levels and the flavor & aroma characteristics of the best traditional ales. Windsor has a quick start to fermentation, which can be completed in 3 days above 17°C. This yeast strain has moderate attenuation, which will leave a relatively high gravity. It's a non-flocculent strain, but some settling can be promoted by cooling and use of fining agents and isinglass. This yeast has found great acceptance in producing strong-tasting bitter stouts, weizens, and hefeweizens.
