The Yeast Bay Vermont Ale
The Yeast Bay Vermont Ale:
Isolated from a uniquely crafted double IPA out of the Northeastern United States, this yeast produces a balanced fruity ester profile of peaches and light citrus that complements any aggressively hopped beer. Expect this strain to take off fast and ferment wort quickly, though elevating the temperature following the bulk of fermentation may be required to raise the attenuation.
In order to achieve high attenuation, we recommend fermenting at 66-68 ºF for 3-4 days, and then raising the temperature to 72 ºF until a stable gravity is reached. We also recommend mashing at 148-149 ºF and adding a small percentage of the fermentables (~ 5-10%) as sugar.
Attenuation has also been reported to increase when repitching after the first generation.
Flocculation: Medium to low
Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 64-72°F (18-22°C)
Add a Cool Yeast Shipper
to protect your yeast. To ensure optimum viability we recommend an ice pack for each vial of yeast. For extra protection insulated packaging is also available.
