Escarpment Labs Thompson Saison Liquid Yeast

This saison strain hails from southern Belgium and creates a rustic saison with lots of pepper and spice. While this strain can create wonderful flavours, it loves the heat and failure to do so may result in lower than expected attenuation. Pitch at around 20 - 22°C, allow it to get up to 25 - 27°C and keep it there for best results.

Attenuation: 65 - 75%
Flocculation Medium 
Optimum Temperature Range: 22 - 27°C
STA1+ (Diastatic)

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.
