GY044 : SCOTCH ALE #1
Attenuation Medium Gravity* 80% - 82%
Attenuation High Gravity* 70% – 72% (8.8% – 9.3% ABV)
Temperature Range† 64˚F – 75˚F
Description: This is one sweet yeast. Neutral flavors emphasize the malt. Leaves a slight residual sweetness and body in high gravity beers perfect for malt forward styles like scotch ales, wee heavy, stouts and porters.
Representative Styles: Scotch Ale, Pale, Wee Beavy, Brown, Porter, Stout
* Attenuation was measured after 8 days with Ale yeast at 70˚F and Lager yeast at 50˚F. Medium Gravity is 14˚ – 16˚Plato. High Gravity is 23˚- 25˚Plato.
† The working temperature range represents the range at which fermentation for a given strain produces a typical attenuation- not necessarily the ideal temperature for your particular beer style. As a rule of thumb, start ale yeast fermentation at 68˚ – 72˚F and then lower or raise temp as desired. Lager Yeast are typically fermented at 45˚ – 58˚F. If desired, Lager Yeast can be given a “hot start” at 65-68˚F and then lowered to the primary temperature after active fermentation begins (10-20hrs).
