PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: I understand that yeast is close to it's best before date and will require a starter to be made with it before use. It is up to the brewer to determine if this yeast is appropriate for their equipment and techniques.
Originating from the village of Grodås in Norway, Espe offers the unique profile of lychee, pear, and tropical fruit cup. The strain bolsters the sweet aromatics of modern IPAs, but is versatile enough for your flagship pale ale or seasonal brew. Espe is most expressive when fermented at 90°F+ (32°C+), but still reveals its character at lower ale-pitching temperatures.
