Escarpment Labs KRUSHER Liquid Yeast
June 2021 Kveik Ring Release
You asked, we listened. Clean kveik with a dryer finish. KRUSHER is a single strain isolate from Jordal Kveik, which was selected for high attenuation and medium flocculation. KRUSHER can be used anywhere you want clean flavour results at a wide range of temperatures as well as a dry finish. While it is not quite as lager-like as KRISPY, we think KRUSHER can sub-in on pseudolagers, or ferment super clean ales faster than American ale strains.
Temperature: 20-25ºC (68-77ºF)
Suitable styles: Pseudolagers, Clean Ales, West Coast IPA
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 lab mate 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.
