March 2021 release
Hailing from the raw ale epicentre in Grodås, Espe presents bright tropical fruit and warming cognac/rum character. Expect similar fermentation performance to other yeasts from the area like Hornindal Kveik Blend. Our version of Espe contains the 4 strains from the original, grown as a blend.
Temperature: Arve Espe pitches at 20ºC, but pitch temps between 20-35ºC work great.
Suitable styles: IPA, raw ale, strong ales
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.
