Scottish Ale

Performance Data

This yeast strain produces a classic Scottish-style Ale. It is fairly neutral in flavor profile and is able to ferment at colder temperatures. The yeast works well with peated and other smoked malts, allowing these flavors to come through in the beer without any esters covering up the malt selection.

    Yeast performance was great.

  2. Scott Hansing

    It’s performed very well! It’s been very robust and stable. No ester development through generations. We’re on our 5th gen and has performed remarkably. We plan on continuing with that strain for our Irish Red and Wee heavy.
