Scottish Ale Wyeast
Species : Ale
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 55-75
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : 69-73
Flocculation : High
Alcohol Tolerance : 12%
Pitching/Fermentation : Higher fermentation temperatures will result in an increased ester profile. Temps under 60 stress this yeast into producing smoky esters
Notes : Our Scottish ale strain is ideally suited for the strong, malty ales of Scotland. This strain is very versatile, and is often used as a “House” strain as it ferments neutral and clean.
Best Styles : American Barleywine, Baltic Porter, Braggot, Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer, Foreign Extra Stout, Imperial IPA, Old Ale, Other Smoked Beer, Russian Imperial Stout, Scottish Export 80/-, Scottish Heavy 70/-, Scottish Light 60/-, Strong Scotch Ale, Wood-Aged Beer
