This wild Ontario ale yeast was isolated from an apple in a local orchard. Wild Thing produces distinct clove, spice, and subtle banana and apple fruit aroma. The taste is dry, spicy and clean. This yeast is most comparable to medium-attenuation Belgian-style ale yeasts. May require temperature ramping to 25C to ensure high attenuation. Attenuation: 75-82% // Optimum Temp: 25ºC+ (77F+) // Alcohol tolerance: 9% // Flocculation: Medium
Do I need to make a starter?
The pitch rate provided is suitable for primary fermentation of standard gravity beers (<1.065 SG). However, for high gravity beers or when the yeast is close to or past the expiry date, we do recommend making a yeast starter.
