Premium Pils is a Czech-derived lager strain with high fermentation rate and clean flavours. While its use is not limited to Czech style beers, we do think that it shines in these styles. We recommend making a yeast starter prior to use with homebrew pouches of lager yeasts for best results.
NOTE: Premium Pils emerged as the fastest lager strain (at 15ºC) in a test by Escarpment Labs team
Attenuation: 70-80% // Optimum Temp: 10-15°C // Alcohol tolerance: Medium // Flocculation: Medium

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.
