Escarpment Labs Wild Thing Ale Liquid Yeast

Escarpment Wild Thing 
This wild Ontario ale yeast was isolated from an apple in a local orchard. Wild Thing produces distinct clove, spice, and subtle banana and apple aromas. The taste is dry, spicy and subtly tart. This yeast is most comparable to medium-attenuation Belgian-style ale yeasts. May require temperature ramping to ensure timely attenuation. Yeast is packaged in 125mL vessels and contains 200 billion yeast cells per pitch.

Attenuation: 72-82%

Flocculation: Medium

Optimum Ferm Temp: 73-80°F - 23-27°C

Alcohol Tolerance: High - Up to 9%

Tip: High temp fermenting!

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.
