Escarpment Labs Hydra yeast
Escarpment Laboratories Hydra yeast
Hydra is a new genetic hybrid of two of Escarpment Labs favourite strains (Cerberus and Vermont). Hydra offers you lower attenuation (65-72%) for more juicy flavour coupled with strong mango and citrus aromatics. Hydra yeast is well suited for hazy hoppy beers from sessions to DIPA.
The lower attenuation can help combat the unexpectedly high attenuation resulting from hop creep that results in unbalanced hazy IPAs. See the info page for more details.
Note: Escarpment Labs recommend extra wort oxygenation when using Hydra for optimal fermentation performance. 10ppm is recommencded or airate your wort longer than usual to ensure a well oxygenated wort.
