Escarpment Labs Fruit Bomb Saison Liquid Yeast

Notify me when this product is available:

This high-character blend contains a Saison strain with balanced ester and spice aromas, an enigmatic Brettanomyces anomala strain with tropical characteristics, and a complex and fruity Brettanomyces bruxellensis strain. Highly suited to aroma hop or fruit-forward farmhouse ales/saisons. NOTE: the Saison yeast in this blend contains the STA1 gene, meaning it is a diastatic yeast. Many Saison yeasts are diastatic, due to the desire for very high attenuation levels.
Attenuation: 80+%
Optimum Temp: 22-27ºC (72-81F)
Alcohol tolerance: 12+%
Flocculation: Medium-low

Escarpment Labs was started in 2013 by three fine fellows in Ontario. Richard Preiss started isolating the yeast strains he used in his homebrewing. This piqued the interest of his labmate Angus Ross - also a homebrewer and beer geek. Soon enough, they were both isolating yeasts from bottles of beer as well as the Ontario wilderness, resulting in a large and diverse strain collection. We now have an expansive collection of both innovative and in-demand yeasts - some available now, with many more in the development pipeline. Nate Ferguson, an instructor at the Niagara College Brewmaster Program, has since joined the team, his technical expertise in all things beer and yeast helping us to produce high-quality cultures on an industrial scale.
