April 2021 Kveik Ring Release
Here’s a bit of an interesting one for April! Sahti is a style of Finnish traditional beer which is brewed with juniper and traditionally lautered in a trough called a kuurna. While the traditional yeast has died out in Finland, we are offering here a strain of baking yeast commonly used in the Nordic countries for both baking and for brewing. Expect high attenuation, light phenols, and a strong banana aroma. Suitable for BOTH beer and bread!
Temperature: 15-30ºC (59-86ºF)
Suitable styles: Sahti, other Nordic ales, can be used in malty Belgian styles as well.
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.
