Introducing Escarpment Labs Yeast from Canada! Hydra is a new genetic hybrid of two of Escarpment Labs' favorite yeast strains (Cerberus x Vermont). Hydra offers you lower attenuation (65-72%) for a more juicy flavor coupled with strong mango and citrus aromatics. Suited to hazy, hoppy beers from sessions to DIPAs. The lower attenuation can help combat the unexpectedly high attenuation resulting from hop creep that results in unbalanced hazy IPAs. (Note: we recommend extra wort oxygenation when using Hydra for optimal fermentation performance - at least 10ppm). Hydra is a big, fruity beast featuring mango and stone fruit flavors and aromatics that is great for hazy and hoppy beers!
ICE PACK INCLUDED
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!
