New Yeast for Aroma Therapy IPA

What a difference yeast can make! I tried a new strain of yeast, and so far I really like the results. It ferments more of the sugars - the beer has a lighter body, less residual sugar and more alcohol. This particular yeast strain also produces a thicker, creamier head. It looks great in a pint glass.

Because it has a drier finish, the hop bitterness is more noticeable. I'll be looking for customer feedback to see if the extra bitterness is a good thing, or if I need to adjust the IBU's. I'll have the new IPA at the Farmers Market this coming Saturday for tastes and growler fills.
