Made by Guelph's own Escarpment Labs Yeast Company. This is their Cerberus strain. This enigmatic strain has proven itself in many breweries who use it alone, or paired with Vermont Ale to produce fruit-forward, hoppy beers. It is known to produce and enhance tropical fruit flavours. If used alone, we recommend a highly fermentable. This strain is non-phenolic, but contains the STA1 gene potentially resulting in diastatic activity. However, Escarpment Labs has not typically seen aggressive attenuation with this strain.
One thing we have noticed is that it can take upwards of two weeks to hit terminal gravity during fermentation.
