The Yeast Bay Hazy Daze II Yeast Blend
Hazy Daze II Yeast Blend
For many years we’ve been experimenting with different yeast blend formulations for increased juiciness and ester profile complexity, as well as slightly faster fermentation kinetics for use in hop forward beers. The original instantiation of this work was our Hazy Daze blend which has been a major success in helping brewers achieve more complex stone fruit ester profiles and better attenuation. After multiple rounds of tweaking our original Hazy Daze formulation, we’ve adjusted proportions and altered the strain composition to develop our new Hazy Daze II culture.
Hazy Daze II is a proprietary blend of four Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains, and will exhibit an intense yet balanced ester profile of stone fruit (peach, apricot, nectarine and), tropical fruit (mango, guava) and grapefruit citrus esters. It will also ferment faster and finish at a slightly lower terminal gravity as compared to our original Hazy Daze.
Temperature: 66-72 ºF
Attenuation: 81 - 85% (Diastatic Strain Component)
