This high-character American ale yeast produces hop-accentuating fruity esters, accentuating stone fruit and citrus character, accompanied by a smooth body. This yeast is quite popular for fruity, hazy-style IPAs. We recommend fermenting at 19-20ºC initially, then raising to 22ºC to complete the fermentation, and holding warm for several days in order to clean up. We highly recommend attention to temperature control with this yeast.
Attenuation: 73-83% // Optimum Temp: 18.8-22.2°C (66-72°F) // Alcohol tolerance: High // Flocculation: Medium
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.
