Expanding even further the “We Brew With You™” concept, LalBrew® Verdant IPA yeast is the result of a collaboration with Verdant Brewing Co, a craft brewery focusing on IPAs and modern hop-forward styles.
The ambition of this collaboration was driven by the will of a continuous effort of Verdant Brewing Co. brewers to improve and give consistency to their IPA and to broaden our expertise in regards to IPA fermentation management. After a long screening process of the brewery’s “house” yeast, Verdant IPA was selected for its performance and unique sensory characteristics when used to create hoppy styles.
In Lallemand‘s standard wort, LalBrew® Verdant IPA exhibits fermentation which can be completed within 5 days at 20°C with a recommended pitch rate of 50-100g per hL of wort, which is sufficient to achieve a minimum of 2.5-5 million viable cells/mL.
– Medium to high attenuation (72-82%)
– Moderate to high flocculation
– Optimal temperature: 18 to 23°C
Prominent notes of apricot and undertones of tropical fruit and citrus merge seamlessly with hop aromas in this highly versatile strain. With medium-high attenuation, LalBrew® Verdant IPA leaves a soft and balanced malt profile with slightly more body than a typical American IPA yeast strain.
Typical flavor descriptors:
– Most notably Apricot
– Slight peach but not as prominent
– Some sweeter notes such as Vanilla, creamy
