GY054 : VERMONT IPA
Attenuation Medium Gravity* 78% - 82%
Attenuation High Gravity* 74% - 76% (10.0% - 10.6% ABV)
Temperature Range† 62˚F – 75˚F
Description: From one of the best examples of an east coast IPA. This yeast attenuates slightly less than NorCal Ale #1 and leaves a beer with more body and a slight fruity ester that is amazing with aromatic hops. Good choice for high gravity beers and hoppy styles. Broad temperature range and moderate flocculation make this yeast a versatile house strain.
Representative Styles: Imperial Pale Ale, American Wheat Beer, Pale Ale, Bitter, West Coast Amber, ESB
* 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).
