This is a non-diastatic yeast isolated from a Belgian Saison. This is quite unique in the saison yeast world, as most saison yeasts contain the STA1 glucoamylase gene, resulting in extremely dry beers. This yeast is suitable for breweries who want to produce authentic Saisons but who are put off by the risk of diastatic yeasts. Saison Maison attenuates in a manner similar to many workhorse ale strains like Cali Ale. To produce an ultra-dry beer, amyloglucosidase enzyme products are recommended as an addition mid-ferment. We also recommend fermenting hot (up to 35ºC) and dosing additional oxygen.
Attenuation: ~80% // Optimum Temp: 22ºC + (72ºF+) // Alcohol tolerance: Medium-high // Flocculation: Medium-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.
