Escarpment Labs Vermont Ale Liquid Yeast

This high-character American ale yeast produces hop-accentuating fruity esters, accentuating stone fruit and citrus character, accompanied by a smooth body. 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.

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.
