Pitching/Fermentation: Ireland's storied stout is thought to be balanced by this dry, crisp, lightly fruity, versatile and powerful strain. A good fermenter with reliable, average flocculation (some diacetyl possible), and a hint of fruit at the lowest recommended temperatures, which increases in complexity at higher temperatures (64+ Degrees F). Successful in dark and high gravity beers. Slainte!
