Escarpment Yeast

Post by Reignman » 4 months ago

www.escarpmentlabs.com/strains

I am starting to use these guys from Guelph, Ontario. I am brewing a bitter tomorrow with English Ale II. After that I will give their lager yeast a try. Anyone here using their yeast strains? How do they perform? I do like the 180 billion cell count.

Their yeasts are great. Many of them are the same strains you'd get from whitelabs or wyeast, plus they have a great collection of unique kveik and other harder-to-find strains

Grapes to Glass in Calgary sells them. And they do mail order. Should be able to get them to you pretty quickly from Calgary.

Fermenting a batch now, using their Vermont Ale strain... Brew day was Sunday, so we're less than 48 hours from pitching and the krausen has already fallen. Bubbling in my blow-off jug seems to have slowed significantly. I don't think I've ever had a beer ferment this quickly before.

Their Kolsch yeast is very clean. I fermented it at 62 F.

I'm sure the higher cell count compared with other liquid yeasts helped speed things along, since I don't often use a starter. I haven't got a cold space anymore, so I'm looking at strains that perform well at temperatures above 22 C. Hard to find clean in that range, but there are some interesting options.
