Joystick has purported origins from a famous Oregon brewery that has made great use of it...and for good reason! This yeast is highly flocculant, ferments quickly, attenuates well, is very alcohol-tolerant, produces little to no diacetyl, and produces only a mild fruitiness. It can make beers that have a crisp, dry finish with a slight mineral character. It is a great strain to use in the production of just about any style of ale, including IPAs, pale ales, blond ales, ambers, browns, stouts, porters, Scottish and Irish ales...the list goes on! Use the Joystick strain, where any recipe calls for pacman yeast!


We include complimentary ice packs with ALL liquid yeast orders (if required), but cannot guarantee that the ice packs will stay cold during transit, and thus the yeast can potentially be exposed to hot temperatures. We highly recommend ordering dry yeast during the hot summer months or if you are ordering from a warmer climate. Many times during the winter an ice pack is not needed so we make the determination based on current temperatures and the destination!

Powerful Yeast!
Used this yeast and made a starter for a Dark Lord Clone. Works fast and finishes clean! I was surprised that the OG went from 1.109 to 1.034 in just 5 days at 67 degrees. Then let it finish off for another two weeks. Worth the extra $ and gets the job done especially for big beers.
