This enigmatic strain has proven itself in many breweries who use it alone or paired with Vermont Ale to produce fruit-forward, hoppy beers. Produces and enhances tropical fruit flavours. If used alone, we recommend a highly fermentable wort.
This strain is non-phenolic, but contains the STA1 gene potentially resulting in diastatic activity. However, we have not typically seen aggressive attenuation with this strain.
Attenuation: 70-80% // Optimum Temp: 22-28ºC // Alcohol tolerance: Medium-High // Flocculation: Low
Escapment Labs, Canada
We are a team of brewers and scientists
Founders Angus Ross, Nate Ferguson, and Richard Preiss met while working in a yeast research lab at the University of Guelph. A collective love for beer and brewing led them to founding Escarpment Laboratories, with the goal of adding value to the craft beverage landscape, and getting to hang out in breweries for a living. Since 2015, Escarpment Laboratories have helped hundreds of breweries achieve their fermentation targets.
We were brewers first. Our founders and many staff come from a brewing background. We know how brewing works, all the way from resetting a mash bed to repitching a yeast culture.
Stress less, brew more. Our exceptional customer support team is available to all of our clients to answer questions and troubleshoot any issues.
Quality ferments. We believe that fresh yeast is the best yeast. We do not sell old or contaminated yeast, and we will ship you the right amount for your beer.
