Harvest time is upon us! We are now accepting pre-orders for wine grapes and juice buckets for this year's harvest. Click the Wine category below to see the available varietals.
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus
Profile: This strain is the classic farmhouse ale yeast. A traditional yeast that is spicy with complex aromatics, including bubble gum. It is very tart and dry on the palate with a mild fruitiness. Expect a crisp, mildly acidic finish that will benefit from elevated fermentation temperatures. This strain is notorious for a rapid and vigorous start to fermentation, only to stick around 1.035 S.G. Fermentation will finish, given time and warm temperatures. Warm fermentation temperatures, at least 90 °F (32 °C), or the use of a secondary strain can accelerate attenuation.
Notes: This Wyeast yeast strain has been classified as Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus using rapid PCR analysis. This strain carries the STA1 gene, which is the “signature” gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus and will be found in all diastaticus strains.
Every employee, along with the owner especially, is not only knowledgeable but kind and helpful. I am a total amateur and this company made me feel welcome and excited to get back home and start brewing.
I've lived and brewed in many cities across the country, and Perfect Brewing has the best inventory and most knowledgeable and helpful people ever!
I have been ordering their kits for brewing beer since I started back in March 2020. I have never had a bad tasting kit. They have even given suggestions and been extremely helpful. I highly recommend them for any of your brewing or wine-making needs. Keep up the great work.
